I wanted inspiration after I persevered with the NHS gyneacologist advice for 1 year which never felt like it was tailored for my needs.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to conceive with or without PCOS. It empowered me to feel in control of my fertility. There is nothing more formidable than a woman who wants a child. Believe you can do it and buy this book!

This is my story....
I have PCOS and I was prescribed weight loss (i'm not exactly huge, just normal 5'7" and 11 1/2 stone) various tablets Provera to bring on periods, clomid to stimulate ovulation and most recently Metformin to manage the insulin resistance caused by the PCOS, plus day 21 blood tests every cycle. When surgery was suggested, Ovarian drilling, I freaked.... surgery seemed so drastic and I wanted to explore all non invasive treatments first without wasting too much time, not getting any younger and all that clock ticking stuff.

So I looked for a book to inspire me to take control of the situation myself. The Baby making Bible has been a godsend and Emma Cannon is an Angel!

I read the book from cover to cover. It is based on the principles of chinese medicine and accupuncture/accupressure. I made small changes to my diet and lifestyle which were really easy to follow for a busy career woman. Its all about balance in your life which lets face it you will cetrainly need balance once you are a parent so its a great place to start.

I also contacted the authors clinic to find out about accupuncture. They are in South Kensington so not local for everyone and a 3 hour round trip for me. Its not cheap but its definately cheaper than IVF. I started having accupuncture weekly at the end of May.

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for almost 18 months and were about to embark on a course of Clomid when I bought this book.
My plan was to follow the basic principles through identifying my 'type' for the first month then undertake courses of acupunture in subesquent months in order to avoid taking Clomid.
I fell pregnant the first month.
Was it just my time or was it through the eating and avoidance of certain foods?
The author encourages positive thinking and in that month I certainly believed that pregnancy was achievable for me when my body was ready.
A load of old mumbo jumbo? . . . I don't think so and any woman who has been trying to conceive without success will give anything a go!
Highly recommended for sheer simplicity (and successful baby making!)

I got pregnant after 6 months of following Emma's book. It is absolutely a must for everyone who wants to get pregnant despite their age or conditions. I was 44 year old when I started following Emma's tips and despite the doctors told me that for my age it would be quite impossible to get pregnant and that they couldn't do anything else for me (apart from prescribing Clomid which didn't work) it did happen! I am now cuddling my beautiful baby boy at home. Thanks Emma for sharing your knowdlege.

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.

Apart from all the title specific information that 'The Baby Making Bible' gives, what was also a huge bonus about this book was the approach to our menstrual cycle. If some of this information had been available to me when I was 15, I'm sure I would have had a very different experience of my monthly period (I may well have been too much of a teenager to listen!, but I'm sure the book could be adapted to younger readers). Since reading and applying Emma's proactive and positive approach, even now in my 40s, I have a pain free cycle, without the PMT too. It's quite a revelation and a relief! And given how tied up this whole aspect of a woman's life is with conception, I imagine it can only help, and it has, in my case.
I loved the nurturing in this book - not just getting the mind on board with this process, not just doing the right level and type of exercise, but also Emma Cannon's approach to nourishing our bodies with good food and practical, easy to follow recipes. This has all really supported me to bring fertility into my every day life in a grounded, balanced and fun way!
It is full of sound advice and is a real companion in what can be a testing and difficult journey.
Thank you Emma.
