Advice from fertility and conception expert Zita West

Zita West's Fertility and Conception addresses the real need for advice and information on fertility and fertility treatment.

If you are struggling to conceive, be assured that you are not alone with 1 in 6 couples in the UK experiencing difficulties in conceiving (nhs.uk). Fertility and Conception will both reassure you that fertility issues are common and suggest various conventional and complementary treatments. Zita West takes a uniquely holistic approach to fertility and conception looking at every aspect of starting a family, from how to ensure healthy ovulation with a nutritious diet, through to correcting hormonal imbalances. She explains how to reduce the effect of disorders that impede fertility and medical fertility tests and treatments.

Fertility and Conception (previous ISBN 9780751338652) is a 'must have' for all men and women looking to maximise their fertility.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have 15 Feb 2005
This is the most comprehensive book on conception and fertility I have ever come across. With this book, you don't need other books. It is super easy to read, beautifully presented (lots of photos) and packed with practical tips and great information that works! This is a must-have for all couples who want to have the big picture but also want the practical information that no one talks about! Zita West is a bright light in what could be a very complicated world of fertility... she keeps it simple and guides you through the process. In short, the book covers all you wanted to know but didn't even think to ask. Her knowledge on alternative medicine and western medicine is vast and knows how to weave the two worlds when it's necessary in a seamless way. The books leaves no stone unturned as it covers all areas of the conception and fertility process... whether you decide to conceive naturally or IVF etc. Her book will bring greater confidence to all couples who embark in this journey and assist them in focusing on what really matters! Here's to Zita!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars For all those thinking about conception 16 Feb 2004
By A Customer
An interesting read for anyone who is moving toward the babies phase of life. It's easy to navigate and hence is easy to dip in and out of depending on what you want out of it. From statistics on your liklihood to get pregnant in the first 3 months of trying, to what vitamins to take and what to do if you don't succeed as quickly as you want to. An informative book that's accessible to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A simple guide to fertility 21 Jan 2006
I love this book, it's easy to read and explains both men and womens fertility to them in a comprehensive but simple to understand fashion. I particularly like the way that 'trying to conceive' is broken down into a four week plan, allowing you to guage the best nutrients for each stage of your cycle. I felt prepared and positive after reading the book, and I know I'll be dipping into this everyday. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely helpful and practical book 30 Mar 2005
By A Customer
After trying to conceive unsuccessfully for over a year, my friend lent me this book and I was impressed. I thought I had read all there was to know on improving chances of conception but the dietary advice, combined with other info (eg soya milk may have a mild contraceptive effect - I previously drank loads) was invaluable.
I'm now 15 weeks pregnant and enjoying Zita West's book on pregnancy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!! 7 May 2009
By Laynie
This book is an excellent guide to those planning for a baby, be it naturally or via IVF! As I was having Acupuncture treatments regularly, it was the perfect companion in terms of information regarding all that you can do to towards conception. Very well laid out and easy to follow information regarding calculating ovulation/menstrual cycle, aswell as dietary, excerise and lifestyle help, for both parents.

With todays busy lifestyle and hectic environment - this book is a great guide on how to prepare best to ensure maximum fertility for a couple. There is plenty of advice on different fertility problems, including advice on fertility tests and dietary and lifestyle advice on how to ehance you and your partners fertility.

The advice certainly has paid off as we are happily pregnant!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Its ok as a start.... 19 Jun 2004
By A Customer
This book is good as a start but at least half is dedicated to fertility problems - which isn't a great deal of use if you're thinking of starting a family amd are looking for tips to get healthy yourself and have a healthy baby. THat said the first half explains all the main things you need to know, although I now feel I need another book to go into a bit more depth.
