Product Description

From the Back Cover

Discover the breakthrough fertility and pregnancy diet and lifestyle plan based on brand-new genetic science Whether you're planning for pregnancy or are already expecting, this essential prenatal guide draws on the latest genetic research to give you a complete program of specific nutrition and environmental lifestyle changes to help you have a better baby. Written for parents everywhere, it contains a program created by two parents—a fertility-oriented physician and a nutrition expert—to reactivate their own fertility after age forty. The book is based on the emerging science of epigenetics, showing how you can change the way your environment interacts with your genes and affect which genes are expressed or "turned on." The Better Baby Book shares important steps you can take to improve preconception nutrition and reduce toxins in your home and your body to consciously get pregnant and help your baby be healthier, smarter, and stronger. This groundbreaking guide: Builds on the latest epigenetics research to help you produce a healthier, smarter, and happier baby with genes for lower risk of allergies, asthma, and developmental issues Shares a specific prescriptive program based on four principles: eating the right foods; taking the right supplements; detoxifying before, during, and after pregnancy; and using new techniques to consciously control maternal stress Demonstrates how a woman's health and her environment during pregnancy may have a much bigger lifelong impact on her child than was previously thought Includes the authors' compelling story of developing the Better Baby Plan as they had their own better babies

I follow WAPF nutritional guidelines so I expected there to be some similarities and some differences. I think the content is generally very thorough. References are available on the betterbaby website, which affords it greater credibility in my opinion.

My mine gripe is that the book is not very practical and it would actually be extremely stressful and time-consuming to implement everything. I actually felt more stressed when I reached the end of the book than when I'd starting reading it. Personally, I would have like to have seen less detail on toxins and perhaps some meal plans or guidelines as to how much of each food we should be eating per kg/bodyweight. Perhaps this is very difficult, I don't know, but I felt that the content on EMFs, mycotoxins, etc. went into great detail to the detriment of more practical advice (ok, we get the picture, try not to use mobiles constantly, don't put laptops on your lap, etc.) A lot of it is common sense and is sometimes inevitable anyway.

Some reviewers on the US site made the comment that it sounded very self-promotional "Alana did this...", "Alana never did this..." I think that this is down to the fact that there are two authors and they needed to create a "neutral" author in order to refer to each other in this way. It does sound self-promotional and a bit annoying at times, but I think it's a recourse that the authors used for clarity's sake.

I am using this book in combination with the Primal Moms Look Good Naked (which I love but doesn't offer much detail either) and Wellness Mama's ebook with content from her website (which has meal plans and recipes for baby-friendly bits and bobs).

I work in a clinic and we have few books on fertility  for couples to read in the waiting room, most of them do give the same information, this book I think sheds a new light on the subject with a fresh perspective its both well researched and written and  its a suggested read to all my fertility patents.
