5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS BOOK
Buy this book before you get pregnant, so that when you are throwing your guts up you will have it on hand to save you! i was sick for 9 months and without this book would have lost my mind. Miriam's suggestions really work! i was able to become a functioning member of society!! required reading for husband, too!!

3.0 out of 5 stars No More Morning Sickness
While the book was worthwhile to have on hand as a guide, I feel strongly that the title and the first chapters are misleading--they suggest to the reader that if you follow Erick's theory and identify those few magic foods for you, you will stop vomiting, put on weight and be cured. Wrong. Basically, morning sickness is a hormonal phenomenon that your body has to...

1.0 out of 5 stars not helpful, Nov. 10 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: No More Morning Sickness (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm puking my guts out and all she has to say is avoid smells and try different foods. The only thing that has done for me is now I puke up different foods. First of all, the title makes you think that you can get rid of your morning sickness, which is totally false. I didn't find anything in the book that helped me. Also, it left some of my key questions unanswered such as: Are there things other than diet that can help? At what point should I call my doctor? How long is this living hell going to last? And lastly, a few additional words of comfort would have been appreciated, rather than the chapter on all the women who spent 9 months hospitalized for this, and this is written as a success story because they were able to cope with it. Come on...

This review is from: No More Morning Sickness (Mass Market Paperback)
With the Internet, there are now a number of new resources for woman experiencing morning sickness. In particular, there are more resources for those with hyperemesis gravidas (extreme vomiting) , and new theories for why it occurs (the bacteria h.pylori, linked to ulcers).

3.0 out of 5 stars No More Morning Sickness, Jan. 19 2000
This review is from: No More Morning Sickness (Mass Market Paperback)
While the book was worthwhile to have on hand as a guide, I feel strongly that the title and the first chapters are misleading--they suggest to the reader that if you follow Erick's theory and identify those few magic foods for you, you will stop vomiting, put on weight and be cured. Wrong. Basically, morning sickness is a hormonal phenomenon that your body has to ride out, in its own time. Neither nutritionists nor health practitioners, holistic or mainstream, really understand it or know what to do about it. Following Erick's premise will help you to identify those few foods that will help you feel less bad, and that you can keep down most of the time, but if you have it bad, time is the only cure. Take it from someone who's tried everything in the course of more than 10 weeks. The book should be retitled to "Surviving Morning Sickness."

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for those struggling with morning sickness., Feb. 28 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: No More Morning Sickness (Mass Market Paperback)
Miriam Erick's "No More Morning Sickness" provides the information that any woman struggling with this potentially debilitating and frustrating symptom of pregnancy needs to read. Miriam Erick assures her readers that it "is not all in your head." She describes the history and treatments of morning sickness, and most important of all, she makes you feel like you have an ally in your struggle with this potentially horrid "illness." I have experienced the good ol' morning, noon and night sickness with all 3 of my pregnancies, and I found the information in this book comforting and helpful, though, I would steer clear of the recipes and head instead to the frozen food section of the local supermart. She does provide tremendous food lists and ideas for those who are frustrated to no end with their sickness. I think every Obstetrician should know about this book and recommend it frequently to those patients they know to be struggling.

5.0 out of 5 stars thorough excellent source, Nov. 6 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: No More Morning Sickness (Mass Market Paperback)
This book provides a thorough review of the history of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, possible causes, possible reliefs or remedies, and nutrition information. It also has touching stories about women who went through what you are probably going through now. She does not believe that n/v has a psychological component.
