Review: Beyond Morning Sickness by Ashli Foshee McCall
Beyond Morning Sickness by Ashli Foshee McCall is a book about hyperemesis gravidarum. As such, it doesn’t have an incredibly wide audience. But, I’m choosing to blog about it because for the target audience it is an incredibly valuable book. I know, because I belong in that group.
I recently read this book because I am in the midst of my third hyperemesis pregnancy. Because I have been down this hellish road before, I already knew much of what I read in this book (although it did give me some new ideas for my medical care). But the most important parts of it for me were the stories shared from other women who have suffered through hyperemesis. It was incredibly validating.
If you, or someone you care for, is dealing with abnormal “morning sickness” then this book is a must read. If you need some guidance on medical care, it is a wealth of information. If you need to feel like you’re not going crazy, the stories shared will let you know you’re not alone.
Like I said, this book isn’t going to have a super wide audience, but I cannot recommend it enough for those of us in the small audience that need it.
