Zofran pump and other complicated issues

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-08-14

I am a deperate first time mother, 18 weeks pregnant. I am 7lbs lighter then when we found out. I have been off work for almost 3 months and tried all sorts of medications, (Reglan, Phenegran, Zofran, anti-histamines, gas-x, antacids, etc.) I had to switch OBGYNs and now drive 45mins to see my doc. They want to start the zofran pump but i question this because the pills are ineffective for me. The cost of zofran will empty our saving for the baby. Even after insurance pays- we are left with $2400 month. I am desperate to feel better. Is there any info on the pump? or zofran supplied through the pump? I am scared I am on my way to tube feedings and hurting the baby.

Your case sounds rather complicated, so I would advise you to call our toll free Motherisk NVP Helpline (1-800 436 8477) where you can speak to one of our specially trained counselors for information
