My Molar Pregnancy

by Jennifer Wood

Book review

Molar pregnancies are so rare that many doctors go their entire careers without treating a single case. A woman who receives this diagnosis is set upon a roller coaster of shock, grief, and fear. In most cases she not only has miscarried or must end a pregnancy and must mourn the loss of a baby, but now she also faces an entirely unexpected fear: cancer. After her own molar pregnancy in 2001, Jennifer Wood created as a resource and support group for women with molar pregnancies and choriocarcinoma. Since then, countless women have found help and shared their own stories to help others. This book contains nearly three dozen such stories as well as information about the condition and additional resources. It is the first collection to focus entirely on the experience-the grief, the confusion, the fear, and the process of recovery-from the patients' perspectives and lets other women with this condition know that they are not alone.
