NBC Nightly News raises awareness of dangerous pregnancy ailment

It's wonderful to see NBC Nightly News drawing attention to HG (hyperemesis gravidarum), the debilitating but treatable disease that expresses itself in extreme morning sickness. Coverage like this can save lives:

My blog pal Ashli Foshee McCall has written an excellent book on HG called Beyond Morning Sickness, which she is sending free fo charge to any ob/gyn who requests it. She herself suffered HG through four pregnancies and now works to help others with the disease.
