For those who have suffered in any way through a pregnancy, this book is for you. Leah Highfill writes about her struggles in dealing with Hyperemesis Gravidarum but her words also go a long way in helping those who have experienced any kind of pain through pregnancy.
Through this book Leah seeks to raise awareness of this disease that affects every 1 in 300 women during pregnancy. (For those who don’t know, this is what Princess Kate was diagnosed with early on in her pregnancy).
I am so excited to be a part of Leah’s team in getting the word out about her new book, Expecting Grace, which launched this week on Amazon! When I first met Leah she had already gone through this experience with her first child and was working through the healing process. However, even though she was struggling, she took the time to befriend me (new to the province) and help me through some hard times of my own. She is definitely a lady of courage and strength.
I’ve had other women tell me about their experiences with severe sickness during pregnancy and after hearing Leah’s story I wondered if they had suffered from the same thing without being properly diagnosed. Through the telling of her doctor visits, hospital stays, and terrifying moments at home, Leah’s book can help others work through the steps needed to deal with the side effects of being allergic to your baby.
With 30 chapters adding up to just under 80 pages, this book is a quick read that won’t keep you waiting for days on end to find out what happened. Leah has turned her story into an easy-to-read book for women of all walks of life. I hope you’ll take the time to find it and read it.
