I get a lot of emails about natural fertility questions, and I recently had the chance to read and review this book: Naturally Knocked Up, which is a great resource for couples who are trying to conceive.
Written by blogger Donielle Baker, who blogs at NaturallKnockedUp.com, it is an easy to understand and comprehensive resource for naturally supporting fertility with food, supplements and lifestyle factors.
Donielle is an amateur herbalist and has overcome infertility struggles herself and now has two little ones. She writes with compassion and hope for couples facing the same struggles she did and provides easy to understand steps to make improvement.
With infertility now striking one in six couples, this information is so important! I continue to keep getting emails on fertility related questions and have seen first hand what a difference nutrition, supplements and lifestyle changes can make for those struggling with fertility. The body naturally wants to be healthy and fertile, but in a world where we are constantly bombarded by toxins in our food, air, water and environment, it can be an uphill battle. The good news is that the body is, in most cases, capable of improving it’s own fertility and functioning optimally when given the right support.
What Naturally Knocked Up Addresses:
Naturally Knocked Up addresses many factors of male and female fertility to help couples improve their chances of conception. Even for those not struggling with infertility, the tips in this book are a great resource to help improve the chance of a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. In Naturally Knocked Up Donielle talks about:
- Foods that are cleansing to the body
- Ways to reduce chemical exposure in the home
- The right type of exercise for fertility and what to avoid
- How to use Natural Family Planning (which I use) techniques to improve odds of conception
