Marisa's latest book: Trying to Get Pregnant (and Succeeding) comes after over 25 years of working with women struggling to conceive naturally or through IVF. Marisa has helped women in their mid-forties to have healthy children and works with women to increase the success rate of IVF. Marisa also uses hypnosis to achieve a healthy, successful pregnancy and a pain free birth. She has appeared on GMTV as an expert hypnotherapist demonstrating the power of hypnosis for women during pregnancy and childbirth. Most fertility books cover diet, vitamins and women's cycles. They focus on pregnancy much more than on actually having a baby. This book is different - it's practical and deals with the role the mind plays in fertility along with a wealth of up to date nutrition and lifestyle advice.

Product Description


"Marisa's soothing voice and carefully chosen words instantly took root within my body and mind. I genuinely felt moved. I felt like a different person. My whole outlook on life had been changed by listening to a woman I hardly knew, instilling all the positive words, thoughts and energy I needed to help me have two beautiful children. I couldn't have got there without Marisa's help."  Rachel Goozee

"Marisa Peer has created a very easy-to-follow programme that any woman can get excited about.  With a refreshing new look at the role the mind plays in getting pregnant Marisa tackles this very important topic in a way that will inspire women to consider their inner dialogue while trying to get pregnant. The "baby blocks" section was incredibly insightful. Who knew there were so many ways for women to talk themselves out of pregnancy?"  Daily Mail Journalist

From the Author

Hi I'm Marisa Peer,

Thanks for taking a look at my book. I just wanted to answer a few questions you might have. This is not a book that asks you to take supplements or eat an organic diet in order to get pregnant and stay pregnant. It's unlike any other book on conception out there because it's written in a way that allows you to naturally boost and also extend and prolong your fertility without the use of drugs or medical intervention. Trying to Get Pregnant and Succeeding is a new, different and very effective way to get pregnant quickly and safely and to have a healthy, happy, full term pregnancy.

I have worked with women with fertility issues all over the world for over 25 years and they taught me so much about the role the mind plays in fertility. This book is the culmination of everything I learnt that really does work. I was told I would never be able to have children so I do understand how painful, distressing and stressful infertility is. However I used my research and understanding of how the mind works to overcome my infertility and I only began helping other women to have babies once I had successfully had my own.

So many infertility books have a "one size fits all" mentality, assuming that all women with infertility have the same problem- they don't. All the infertility books I looked at cover diet, lifestyle and vitamins but ignore the role that the mind plays in blocking conception, when this is the most important factor to consider and work on in order to have a baby.  There are different types of infertility including unexplained infertility, secondary infertility, medical infertility and age or trauma related infertility and each type needs a particular method to bring about a cure.

It was important for me to write a book that would help any woman anywhere in the world who was experiencing problems getting and staying pregnant.  This book shows you how to easily get pregnant even by your next cycle and it's easy, simple and painless. There are no gimmicks- just solutions. Reading it will change the way you think. As you read it you will absorb powerful solutions and feel the benefits of the latest cutting edge treatments very quickly and from the privacy of your sofa.

I not only understand the complex issues that can cause infertility, I know how to overcome it. My method has an incredibly high success rate and it's radically different. If you want a baby my technique works and it works fast.  You can get your body to ovulate perfect grade A eggs and you can influence your hormone levels too so you become and stay pregnant. You don't have to spend a fortune on IVF just read the book listen to the CD and sign up to my website  for more support and this time next year you could be holding your perfect baby in your arms.

Thank you for listening to me.

Very best,
Marisa Peer

I first heard of Marisa when I read her `You Can be Thin' article in the Daily Mirror. Little was I to know that this article was to change my life forever! Up until this point, I had been convinced that I wouldn't be `brave' enough to have children because of my fears. The most amazing thing was that at the age of 38, I realised that if I could `re programme' my brain to reach my ideal weight, I could also use Marisa's techniques to overcome my fears and concerns about having a baby. I was lucky enough to read the manuscript of Marisa's new book Trying to Get Pregnant (and Succeeding) and listened to her CD (Easy Conception) and within a few months I was pregnant. I also listened to the `Perfect Pregnancy' audio download from Marisa's programme whilst I was pregnant, which helped me to look forward to a positive and relaxing pregnancy and enabled me to visualise my healthy baby growing every day. I continue to recommend Marisa's methods and `magic' to all of my friends who have issues with getting pregnant. Thank you, Marisa for all the amazing things your books, CDs and powerful words have brought to my life. You are a true inspiration.

I have PCOS and after coming off the contraceptive pill I had not had a period for about 12 months before hearing about Marisa. I constantly felt filled with panic that these would never return hence never allowing us to conceive. I was putting unnecessary stress on myself and my husband whilst `trying' for what I thought was an eternity and my expectation of failure created a state of mind that was inhibiting any chance of success. I knew that there was a mind-body connection missing and that my mind set at the time was not going to help me become pregnant.

When I underwent hypnosis, Marisa guided me through my own history, addressed blocks that were stopping my body from experiencing a cycle, looked at changes to diet which I was resisting and allowed me to visualise my cycle returning along with positive imagery on actually becoming pregnant.

I left that session more relaxed and in a better state of mind than I had been in quite a long time. I was so excited, I couldn't wait to listen to the session recording again and get started on lifestyle and diet changes that I assumed would have been difficult however I felt so empowered that I felt I could make these easily . I also began to believe that I would actually conceive. I also feel that the session has not only improved my mindset for conception but has had a positive impact on all of the areas of my life.

Within 5 weeks of my appointment I had a period and I was pregnant 3 months later and am expecting our first child at the start of April 2013.

In conjunction with my appointment I used this brilliant book which supported me at home to get my mind and body primed to achieve conception. I could not recommend this book highly enough to someone having any issues trying to fall pregnant. Excellent read, great that something so great is available to buy!!

I have been trying to concieve for the last 3 yrs, my whole marriage, and after doing two failed ivf's i was near breaking point, i found this book by typing in "trying to concieve' in amazon search, and it has been a godsend. i downloaded the book as i couldn't wait for it to arrive, i was trying to decide if i would try again with ivf, and was at a crossroads. Mentally i was shattered , after 2 ivfs my reserve had gone extremely low, i had been told i was producing bad eggs and donor eggs may be my only choice. to say i was at a low ebb is an understatment.All my teens i have focused on my fathers sister getting her menopause at 39 , i was sure this was my future and as long as i can remember i always had an urgency that i only had a small window for getting pregnant, however i did not meet the right man till my mid thirties , so as far as i was concerned time was running out. i definately think this is my major baby block that Marisa speaks about , by reading her book i have learned not to focus on my aunt and after getting in touch with marisa by twitter she has advised me to focus on how much i look like my mothers side etc, my grandmother was still having children at 43 naturally.
Marisa's book has brought a new light into my life and i have decided to focus on what my body can do and not on all the negative results from the doctors, since i have started reading this book my cycle has lenghtened from 21 days to 25 which it has not been for a year, i believe this is due to focusing on all the positive things your body can do, all you have to do is tell it what you want and to believe.

I just wanted to share the good news... After using Marisa Peer's visualization techniques, I have just found out I'm pregnant! I really believe her techniques worked for me and helped me overcome my fears. I had been advised to try assisted fertility, and was about to go down that path, when I purchased this as a last resort. I used the guided meditation every day and found it really helped me visualize my baby and I found I became really positive when thinking about pregnancy (whereas before I associated it with doctors, and tests, and negative emotions). I really can't recommend Marisa Peer highly enough, and think this is definitely worth a try for anyone having trouble conceiving!
