Perhaps my own fault for not taking the time to read more about what I was purchasing, but this was not what I was looking for at all! As another reviewer has observed, the emphasis on Chinese medicine is significant. The book claims to balance the principles of western and eastern traditions, but it really felt like the focus was on Chinese principles. Now, don't get me wrong, I recognise the value of Chinese medicine, but what I was after was a more "conventional" guide to help me fully understand the western approach to baby making science. I need to get my head around that first before exploring other approaches!
Don't be put off if you want to broaden your baby making mind, perhaps if you are already familiar with the western science, as the author clearly understands her field. But if you want a straightforward, western-centric guide, this is not it.
