Press Release

Raynie Andrewsen Aims to Raise Awareness of Deadly Pregnancy Disease: Hyperemesis Gravidarum with Release of New Book, Letters to Zane.

RENO, NV.—SEPTEMBER 22, 2007— Raynie Andrewsen leads readers through her struggles with Hyperemesis Gravidarum in a book written for her unborn child, Letters to Zane.
Letters to Zane is a heartfelt story of a woman who finds herself about to become a single mother and unknowingly about to fight for her life and the life of her unborn child. She learns she has Hyperemesis Gravidarum, and must face her own mortality. The disease although rare is very debilitating for women who must go through it. Some women abort or lose their child, others lose their lives. Letters to Zane describes the disease, treatment, and the daily struggles she faced trying to bring her child into the world.

Raynie Andrewsen originally wrote Letters to Zane as a journal to her unborn son, so that he would know how much he was wanted and loved. She quickly realized that her story could help other mothers struggling with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. She believes that it will give them hope when there seems to be none. Letters to Zane is available for purchase at

“I never thought bringing my child into this world would be so hard. I wanted to publish my story so other women suffering with Hyperemesis Gravidarum will have access to information in a market where there is very little written about the disease. There is little information available about this disease which afflicts approximately 50,000 women each year. If my story gives just one woman hope, then I have done my job.” said Raynie Andrewsen.
