Children are one of the things which make our existence here on Earth all the more meaningful and richer. While having a little one around the house may be an incredible experience, it can also become traumatizing when pregnancies don’t progress normally. One such case is that of molar pregnancies, otherwise known as hydatidiform mole.
In her book, “Molar Pregnancy: What is a Molar Pregnancy or Hydatidiform Mole? Symptoms, Causes, and Treatments,” Claudia Gordon provides extensive information on what molar pregnancy is, what factors lead to this condition, its symptoms, what to do after receiving this diagnose, how to deal with complications, what kind of treatment to choose, and much more. The author talked about recovery in terms of both physical and emotional health, so that any woman who has had a molar pregnancy may feel more at ease with the idea of conceiving again.
Claudia Gordon included a definition of the hydatidiform mole in the introductory chapter of her guide. “Molar pregnancies are a type of gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD), a group of disorders that lead to an abnormal production of placental (trophoblastic) tissue.” She then continued by explaining that in a normal pregnancy, an embryo is formed, but that in the case of molar pregnancies an embryo might be inexistent. C. Gordon offers plenty of information in accessible language, so that any reader may understand the medical terms and concepts.
Regarding a new pregnancy, the author recommended various ways of boosting your fertility: diet, supplements, intercourse timing, exercise, and so on. The guide also includes a Glossary of terms, to facilitate the understanding of the notions comprised herein, and additional resources, such as online forums, charities, studies, reflexology, and acupuncture.
If you have been confronted with a molar pregnancy in the past or if you know someone who has, Claudia Gordon’s guide may prove extremely helpful and insightful.
