Create a Fertile Life (CFL) provides all the lifestyle advice you need to increase your chances of conceiving and growing a healthy baby.
The book is written by Fertile Ground Health Group practitioners, who are leaders in this highly specialised field. CFL is a testament to their expertise. What’s more it’s easy to read, with practical tips and self-assessment tools, covering all the ways we can improve our fertility naturally.
Who is Create a Fertile Life for?
CFL is ideal for those preparing to conceive, as well as individuals or couples who are dealing with unexpected challenges to their fertility, including IVF.
“(Create a Fertile life) is a must read before you see your fertility specialist – it will help you ask all the right questions!”
Dr Manuela Toledo, Melbourne IVF
This is a comprehensive book, which helps you understand and optimise your fertility. It also covers the impact of aging, weight, diet and lifestyle on both female and male fertility and most importantly, what you can to improve these factors.
Every chapter has practical advice, including ways to rethink stress, exercise and some challenging but necessary changes, like quitting alcohol and cigarettes.
Ultimately, this book offers a blueprint for a healthy life, whether you’re trying to conceive or not. I suggest anyone who wants to maximise their wellbeing reads it!
For health practitioners
CFL is an invaluable resource for naturopaths and other health professionals. It provides the important lifestyle advice that we’d love all our clients to follow. It’s well referenced and packed full of evidence to back up the advice. It really makes our job so much easier!
The book doesn’t advise readers on taking specific supplements or herbs. The authors believe that this is best left to the naturopath/nutritionist/herbalist, who can prescribe what is most appropriate for an individual.
I thoroughly recommend Create a Fertile Life. It’s a great read, practical and empowering. As the blurb says, it really is “a pre-conception book like no other.”
