I had HG in my last pregnancy. Can I prevent it?

Postby admin » May 26, 2004 11:16 pm

Since the exact cause is not known and is likely due to more than one factor, HG is not preventable. However, the symptoms are often more manageable and less severe if adequate treatment is given early in pregnancy. Sometimes HG is less severe if you plan ahead and prepare for pregnancy. This includes eating healthy, taking antioxidants and prenatal vitamins for several months, and making sure you are in the best health possible. Underlying conditions such as gall bladder disease can worsen HG.

Finding a health professional who is experienced in treating HG and knows your history is crucial. Make a plan based on what worked for your last pregnancy and find a health professional willing to help you get the care you need. http://www.helpher.org/mothers/referral-network/index.php
