After being disappointed at the lack of information about pregnancy with Fibromyalgia when I had my first son, I set about writing up my experiences and researching as new information became available.
This is the result of five years of research and personal experience of pregnancy, labour and the first year. I also include the results of small, informal surveys that I conducted.
This is a time in your life where you need information and you need it concisely. My book provides this.What are people reading Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia saying?
“Lived experience + self-awareness + systems thinking + good storytelling is golden. Add brevity and it’s priceless. Melissa’s book is priceless”

Health Hats (www.health-hats.com)“Pregnancy and Fibromyalgia is a short, easy-to-digest run-down of things you can expect during a fibro pregnancy, and how to navigate them.”
Spoonie Living (blog.spoonieliving.com)“I found Melissa to write in a down-to-earth way that was engaging and encouraging, giving useful, manageable advice that you can actually use. Most importantly, I think, was the sense of support and hope she garners that you can indeed manage whatever life throws at you, that you can survive pregnancy and the ups and downs it may entail. I find this to be an invaluable resource and in inspirational source of encouragement, whether you know someone / a partner who deals with fibromyalgia who is pregnant, or whether you’re thinking of having a baby or are currently pregnant.”
