Leah A. Highfill writes her testimony of her frightening pregnancy causing a grave illness and her road to recovery in childbirth – and God’s grace throughout.
The Miraculous Survival Story of a
Hyperemesis Gravidarum Pregnancy
by Leah A. Highfill
Most of us moms have pregnancy and birth stories we love to share. Others, maybe not so much.
But this isn’t about me or you.
This is Leah’s pregnancy story. It’s unbelievable.
This is an amazing testimony of God’s grace and redemption through childbirth. a mother’s story of loving her children more than herself, even while they’re in the womb, even through life threatening and widely misunderstood illness. This story needs to be read! It needs to be told. It needs to be shouted from the rooftops.
Expecting Grace: The Miraculous Survival Story of a Hyperemesis Gravidarum Pregnancy
I had heard about women with this illness, Hyperemesis gravidarum. I never realized how it must be for a pregnant lady to experience. I know that nausea is the worst feeling in the world and I cannot imagine going through it to that extent for an entire pregnancy – or ever allowing myself to become pregnant again.
I commend Leah for her story of God’s grace and for loving her children so much to struggle through those pregnancies – not once, but twice.
This is an eye-opening testimony of the lack of knowledge of some doctors and how our “conversation” can change lives. I love that Leah’s fortitude and attitude helped that one doctor realize God was with her. She planted a seed in his heart.
This book also helped me to realize that there are needs out there that I didn’t even know existed. I’ve never been one to ask for help. So perhaps I can open my eyes and heart a little more to realize the needs of others, pregnant or not.
