Library JournalWritten by a registered dietician, this detailed guide to morning sickness focuses on controlling symptoms through diet. The role of nutrition and food choices in reducing illness is explored, and sample recipes, menus, and a ``survival kit'' are provided. Using case studies, the text also examines mothers' feelings and partners' reactions to the symptoms of morning sickness. Often dismissed as a trivial or transient complaint, morning sickness becomes severe enough in one in 72 pregnant women to require hospitalization. An occasionally awkward writing style does not diminish the importance of this handbook in synthesizing current knowledge about this disorder and providing practical advice to reduce or eliminate its impact. For all popular medicine and consumer health collections.-- Kathryn Hammell Carpenter, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago

No More Morning Sickness: A Survival Guide for Pregnant Women based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A friend loaned this book to me when I was pregnant with my first child. I had very severe morning sickness, and thought I was going crazy because no one I knew had had similar debilitating symptoms. This book helped normalize my experience and offer encouragement. Unfortunately, my symptoms continued for several more months, but my daughter was born healthy and is a happy toddler now. This is a great resource for women experiencing hyperemesis or severe morning sickness.
