I wanted to let you know how much help you have been to me. I contacted you during my first pregnancy 4 years ago. I experienced nvp throughout my pregnancy at that time. I have a beatiful,healthy and active 3 year old. I am now 7 weeks pregnant with my second baby and experiencing nvp. I spoke to Caroline yesterday. She was a trememdous help. She gave me excellent information. My doctor tries to help but defers to Motherisk for details about treatments. Your website is excellent. I have been able to print off the treatment algorithm and give a copy to my doctor. Your work is excellent. After being told by relatives that nvp is just a part of pregnancy; coworkers telling me that I must not want the baby; reading in popular books that there was nothing I could take - it was reassuring to talk to someone who had studied the condition and could offer practical and safe help. THANK YOU.
Thank you for your very kind words. We were glad to help. Please be sure to call again when you need us.
