From Emily, Who Faced Extreme Nausea during Pregnancy

We got this personal story from Emily for the People We've Helped section of our website.  It’s hard to imagine anything much worse than severe, incapacitating nausea. Emily had it in spades when she was pregnant with her son. Some days, it was so bad, she even doubted she’d ever be a good mother to her unborn son…

Read her story in her own words...

I too have benefited from guided imagery.  When I was pregnant with my son, I had EXTREME nausea. I listened to the Healthy Pregnancy CD and it really helped me deal with the early pregnancy symptoms. 

In fact, I remember a specific morning when I just felt horrible – sick, fatigued, overwhelmed and unsure if I would be able to be a good mom. I sat down in our office chair and popped in the CD. 

Breathing through my tears, I felt a real sense of calm wash over me. The nausea subsided and my attitude improved. I felt more confident that I would get through those difficult months and was more mindful of the wonderful gift I was carrying inside me. 

I have since shared your CD with my sister and friends. Much easier and healthier than taking prescription drugs!
