World-renowned fertility consultant Adam Balen and reproductive biologist Grace Dugdale dispel the myths in this comprehensive guide to reproductive health, explaining in easy-to-understand terms the genetic and lifestyle factors at play. They take an honest look at the evidence for both conventional and alternative approaches, equipping you with powerful tools to improve your chances of a natural conception and an understanding of how to create the best environment for a healthy pregnancy. If you do decide to seek help through assisted conception, this book will be with you every step of the way, explaining what treatments are available and how to approach them, so that you can come to an informed decision about what is right for you.
Professor Adam Balen and Grace Dugdale have decades of experience helping couples on their journey to conception and beyond. Now in this, their first book for a general readership, they explain everything you need to know to understand your own fertility.
Knowledge is power and, in the disempowering situation of struggling to conceive, this book is an absolute game-changer. Whether you're brand new to the world of fertility or you've struggled for a while, this book is a beacon of clear, detailed information. It is an amazing resource and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is even considering having a go at conceiving!'
This unique, patient-centred book provides high-quality clinical and scientific information, but with an emphasis on a holistic approach that seeks to empower readers. Comprehensive and authoritative, it is written in an easy, accessible style that makes it a pleasure to read and understand. Everyone concerned about their fertility should read it - and so should the clinicians looking after them!
An utterly brilliant book. Fully comprehensive and reader-friendly. I wish it had been around when I was on my own fertility journey.
Inability to conceive is tremendously stressful for many couples. Whilst there is no shortage of information, it is difficult to separate what is credible and evidence-based from wishful theories and anecdotes. This is where The Fertility Book makes a unique contribution, by synthesising and presenting credible evidence to inform one's fertility journey. If you are struggling to have a baby, make time for this book. It will help you.
This book has all that most need to optimise their fertility. It clearly explains the science in ways that should help couples feel empowered when it comes to making what could be some of the most important decisions of their lives.
