Giving Tuesday Now is May 5th

It’s hard to believe that we are more than 2 months into the COVID-19 pandemic. The truth is that nothing is normal right now, especially not for pregnant mothers with HG. It is hard enough to have a successful pregnancy under normal conditions. Now our hospitals are jammed, chaotic, and operating in a different mode. Yet, there is always hope for…

Come Home to HER: Eliana

I was sitting on the floor at the foot of my bed. I kind of knew how I got there, but it was a bit fuzzy. Each time I tried to stand up, my strength wasn’t enough. I needed my husband’s help to get up and to walk to the car. It was around 2…
