TFMR: Maternal Health Reasons - Hyperemesis Gravidarum

Listen on

Episode notes

In today's episode we hear from Ja'Nai Wilkes describe her journey with hyperemesis gravidarum.

Often described as severe sickness, HG can be a debilitating illness. Ja'Nai has been effected by HG in all of her pregnancies. She managed to make it through her first two pregnancies and give birth to two healthy babies, but when she got pregnant for a 3rd time, she knew things were going to be much, much worse.

Ja'Nai went on the end three of her pregnancies due to HG. Her babies Dahlia, DeWayne and Rose are forever loved and missed.

TFMR for maternal health reasons is often less spoken about and so we are grateful to Ja'Nai for sharing with us so openly.

She has gone on to create support groups for other HG sufferers and you can find the various support mentioned in the episode here:
