Finding out that you are pregnant brings joy all around. You begin to envisage the promised pregnancy glow and the joy of telling your family the good news. Of course, you are aware of the possibility of ‘morning sickness’ but you never imagine that this sickness could take away your ability to function and leave you hospitalised or bedridden for weeks on end. A diagnosis of Hyperemesis Gravidarum can leave you feeling scared, isolated and questioning why me? These feelings are made worse by the constant judgement from those around you due to lack of awareness. A BAME Mother's Story gives a detailed insight into the experience of a hyperemesis gravidarum survivor; it covers everything a mother needs to know, including the physical, mental and cultural challenges that it can bring. It gives a relatable insight into the true reality of the condition. It offers comfort and encouragement as it journeys through the highs and lows of the authors own hyperemesis gravidarum story as well as other survivors.
