The Lopu jo! (“Please, stop!”) pages were created to provide comprehensive information about nausea and vomiting of pregnancy in Finnish – something that had been lacking in the wide web.
Those of you who dont’t understand Finnish, don’t worry: there’s plenty of information about NVP available in English. I hope you will find these excellent sites helpful:
Motherisk: Information and a Q&A forum
The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
“Motherisk researchers have interviewed thousands of women, gathering detailed accounts of their experience with NVP. Many have described it as a time of acute suffering, worry and frustration. This and other research have helped us understand the extent of the suffering, determine possible causes and deterrents, and establish recommendations on how to treat the condition. We continue to collect information about the effects of NVP and its treatment, paying special attention to NVP’s impact on the quality of women’s lives.”
