Erin spent several years on birth control and when she finally decided to try to get pregnant, she found it wasn't as easy as her friends said it would be. To date her infertility is unexplained. She started taking the advice written in Making Babies in the hopes that a little tweak here and there would lead to conception. Seven months later, it did, but was unfortunately followed by a miscarriage in October 2011, and another in July 2012. Erin is 33 and lives with her husband and two cats in San Jose, California. She blogs at Musings of a Madwoman.
Christina has tried getting pregnant the old-fashioned way for 3 years. She should have known this might be a challenge. It seems most of the women in her family (mom, sister, aunts and grandmother) struggled to get pregnant. That said, they all eventually had children, so she remains optimistic. She picked Making Babies as her baby-making guide because she distrusts doctors and hopes to get pregnant naturally. Christina is 34 and lives in Northern California with her husband, John. She also blogs at www.windshieldrosary.blogspot.com.
Making Babies lays out a path for fertility using western and eastern medicine together. At its core, it believes couples can get pregnant if they follow certain diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes to reach optimum fertility. It also believes these changes should be followed even if further fertility help is needed, so that the best conditions are laid down before medical intervention is sought.
So, does it work? Three women are about to find out.
