Product Description

Fertility is one of the major health and wellbeing issues for modern women, and Emma Cannon's Total Fertility offers clear, warm and supportive advice to help you on your own unique fertility journey. This book will help you get pregnant now, whether you are going for natural or assisted conception, and also focus on fertility preservation to help you stay fertile longer so you can get pregnant in the future.

Emma Cannon answers the many nagging questions women have about fertility and conception; questions such as:

How can I get a sense of my fertility? Can I preserve my fertility? When exactly should we be having sex? Does my diet really matter? Does stress lower my chances of conceiving? What exercise should I be doing?

Reducing stress and approaching fertility with a calm and positive attitude is central to her approach to getting pregnant, so Emma also helps you develop a 'fertile mindset' with a toolbox of simple suggestions to cultivate emotional wellness for your particular fertility 'type'.

Written in Emma's trademark optimistic, warm and non-judgmental tone, Total Fertility is a book for anyone who is thinking - or has ever thought of - getting pregnant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Emma Cannon 4 Jun 2013
Emma Cannon continues to deliver sensible, practical advice for women in all stages of their lives. She never preaches but gives solid advice as to how you can improve your fertility. Her style is approachable and thoughtful, without judgement. And I always learn something new from her.
Her chicken soup recipe from the last book is still a firm favourite.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! 17 Jun 2013
This book is packed full of information yet non prescriptive and a joy to read! It should be bought for all daughters, nieces and young women you know! It has lots of common sense advice on how to keep yourself healthy so that when you decide to conceive one day you're in good shape to do so.
It's not just for those wanting help with conception, but really useful for any woman wanting to understand her body and fertility better.
It also goes way beyond the normal dry information about female biology. Emma gives words of wisdom on sex, relationships and our emotions. Best of all, its got lots of delicious recipes that promote good health.

By Miss F
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Emma's most recent book is a soothing and calming antidote to the well trodden fertility path that can so easily become fraught and goal-oriented. It is gentle, intuitive and warm in tone - just what the often jaded fertility client needs. Most importantly, it is written with an acute and sensitive understanding of women and our sometimes complex psychological and emotional relationships with our bodies and reproductive health.

In a world where women are stronger, high performing and more achievement-focussed than ever before, the clear messages in this book act as a simple balm to calm the mind. In an age where we can make choices, be mistresses of our own destiny and go forth to conquer the world if we so wish... one small and simple fact remains, our fertile health and wellbeing is at the very heart of who we are, and if neglected will impact not only on our reproductive prospects, but will weigh heavily on our heart and soul like a shadow, weighing down overall health and vitality.

As a tonic to the achievement-oriented 'merry-go-round', Emma's wisdom counsels being kind and gentle to ourselves, giving us a welcome release from the busy, stressed and often urban lives we lead. How many practitioners will tell you to stop 'doing' and 'pursuing' and just give yourself a break, emotionally and physically? To attune with your own body and develop an intuitive understanding of you own rhythms is ultimately empowering. The fertility journey can be a sterile and soul destroying 'treadmill,' whilst at the same time laden with hope and wishfulness; Emma points out how simply getting back to basic self care through excellent nutrition and gentle therapies, multiple health benefits will ensue.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate guide to fertility 19 Jun 2013
If you are wanting to read a book about fertility this is THE one to buy. This book is sensitively and beautifully written I could really relate to it. Emma Cannon's natural warmth comes through in each chapter as she discusses everything you need to know during the journey to having a baby. It was a huge comfort to me reading this and I also absolutely love the fact that her real message is about taking care of that the next generation hopefully don't have so many problems getting pregnant. A simple message but one that is so worth taking on board. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
