Rachel Smith

 HG Survivor was created by proud mother Rachel Smith. She lives in Connecticut with her lovely son, husband, cat and dog.  When she was sick with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, reading the words of others helped her find hope. After her  little one arrived, she was inspired to create a blog of her own that encourages others who are struggling with this terrible disease. Feel free to email her at: rachelesmith [at] hush.com

    I understand what you went through. Hg is very hard. I would like to encourage all woman to hang in there. You need faith in the Lord, for me it is Jesus Christ. A lot of prayer’s went up to the Lord for Rachel. I saw the suffering that Rachel went through . I am not making light of what all you are going through. It is real!Ladies when you hold that little baby in your arms you forget all the pain. There is hope. I know I am a Mother of two lovely daughter’s, and Rachel, is one of them.
    He settles the barren woman in her home as a happy Mother of children. Praise the Lord. Psalm 113 :9
    Love Your
