Preventing HG Podcast: Hyperemesis Gravidarum | Pregnancy | Morning Sickness | Nutrition | Root Causes | Alternative Treatments
About This Show
My name is Rachel Dewell and I'm a nurse and a mother of 5. After suffering with Hyperemesis Gravidarum multiple times and being told it was just bad morning sickness, I made it my mission to help other women prevent another HG pregnancy and its related health issues. I started this podcast to share the answers I’m finding. Every episode, I dig deeper and make the connections that not everyone sees yet. I want to separate fact from fiction and figure out what really matters. We hear all the same things over and over, but I want to find out what really works, why it works and what you can do about it before having another baby and another HG pregnancy. There are no guarantees here, but I will flip over every rock I can find.Read more »

You've probably heard of a labor doula. Someone who stays by your side throughout the labor and delivery and afterbirth process to provide physical and emotional support. A bereavement doula is just how it sounds, someone to stay by your side while you grieve the loss of your baby.
I had never heard of a bereavement doula but after getting acquainted with Kathleen Garcia, I'm glad that there is someone out who wants to help parents walk through one of the hardest of life's experiences: the loss of a child. Kathleen says that she never wants a Mom to have to suffer alone.
In this episode:
