Getting help for HG in Australia

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-08-01

Question:
I am from Australia. I have had 2 pregnancies, both with severe HG for the 9 months and struggled to find treatment to help me. I also suffered deep depression during both. My husband and I would like to have one more to complete the family we desire. We have support to help me and the kids etc.... but is it just too dangerous to go through all that again? With the 1st child I was put on Largatel for the HG but found it made me even more depressed and suicidal. I refused this drug with baby number 2. I feel that drug has affected my childs behaviour as he has been difficult since birth. What is your opiion on the above and where in Aust. can get help and info? Thanks for any help you can offer. Daphne Birett
