Molar pregnancies occur in 1 in 1,500 pregnancies. They are so rare that many doctors can go their entire careers without treating one case. For a woman with this diagnosis, it is a roller coaster of shock, grief, and fear. In most cases she has miscarried or must end a pregnancy and is mourning the loss of a baby. Now she is now faced with a new and unexpected fear: cancer. After her own molar pregnancy in 2001, Jennifer Wood created as a resource and support group for women with molar pregnancies. Since then, countless women have found help and shared their own stories to help others. This book contains nearly three dozen such stories from diagnosis through treatment and recovery. It also includes descriptions of molar pregnancy and choriocarcinoma and the experience of being diagnosed and provides an appendix of Web sites and a bibliography of useful research.
