When Prescription Drugs aren't enough for HG

What should you do if Zofran or the other prescription medications aren't enough to combat the nausea and vomiting of pregnancy? What if you're not eating or drinking and no one in your town knows how to treat Hyperemesis Gravidarum? What are you options?

In this episode:
