Must have for pregnant mothers with HG who have children,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mama Has Hyperemesis Gravidarum (But Only For A While) (Paperback)
I got this book when I was expecting my third baby, mostly for my 3 year old but it turns out even my 18 month old at that time understood it. It is a thin paperback book with lovely illustrations and a wonderful story that does not hide the horribleness but at the same time reminds the child that mummy is only sick for a little while and includes the excitement of the pending arrival of the baby. As the book was written by an American the wording is slightly non British with words such as trash can. But this is not annoying at all as the story is so well written. When my husband first read it to my girls they both had tears in their eyes and the eldest said "mummy has that too daddy". My third is now nearly 4 months and they still like me to read it to them especially the youngest, she can now express what she remembers and we talk about it. Am keeping the book just in case my daughter suffer with HG in the future. Cannot recommend highly enough!
