A book to help you relax at a stressful time,
This review is from: Zita West's Guide to Getting Pregnant: The Complete Programme from the Renowned Fertility Expert (Paperback)
I got this book when my husband and I decided to start trying for a baby.
I realised I only knew the very basics about fertility and wanted to understand it a bit more to gives us a good chance. I only read this book and feel that I have never needed any others. The style of writing is excellent. A lot of these kinds of books can be really patronising but Zita West's style is much more in line with talking things over with a good friend and a glass of wine.
I am so glad I bought this book. West's approach helped me understand my own body in a way I never thought possible. I was so in tune I didn't need fertility sticks (and believe me I am a complete dunce when it comes to things like this) and after 2 months we were delighted to find out that we were pregnant. I am now nearly 7 months pregnant and I have to say I am having a really healthy, confident pregnancy.
Personally, I feel a lot more confident in the pregnancy (this is my first) because I started off with a relaxed and calm frame or mind and felt prepared by reading the book.
I am so glad I bought the book and would recommend it to anybody.
I am so glad I bought this book. The main thing is that it taught me to relax and how to 'read' my body.
