Life as a mom who has her hands full
If you are pregnant, there is a 1/1,000 chance that you could be diagnosed with a molar pregnancy. But what exactly is a molar pregnancy. A molar pregnancy is not a typical pregnancy. There is usually no embryo, just a mass of cells that clusters together like grapes to form the “mole’. What makes a molar pregnancy so devastating is that there is a chance that the cells could be cancerous. What starts out as a happy occasion (a couple find out they are having a baby), can turn into a frightening one in a matter of minutes when it is diagnosed. For the next year, the mother may need to undergo chemotherapy and put off getting pregnant.
