Question:
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.

Answer:
Thank you for your very kind words. We were glad to help. Please be sure to call again when you need us.
