Forum > NVP Symptoms and Effects: Understanding NVP
Getting NVP information in French

NVP Counselor
Date: 2004-11-15

Question:
I administrate the forum at www.helpher.org, and have been contacted by a woman who is suffering severe NVP in France. She needs a contact w/ someone who may be able to provide education for her Drs. in French. Her Drs. have been treating her illness as psychological. I have spoken many times with Caroline here at Motherisk in the past but have been told by a mutual friend that she is on leave with her baby. Is there an email address that I could send to this French woman so she could contact a Motherisk NVP counsellor? Thank you so much for everything you do!

Answer:
Though Caroline is on maternity leave, the Motherisk NVP Helpline and this on-line Forum are being covered by other expert NVP counselors at Motherisk. Your client is more than welcome to use this on-line forum to get information about NVP and ways to treat it. She may write her questions in French and the reply will be posted in French. We look forward to hearing from her.
