From the Publisher:

GETTING PREGNANT is the ultimate resource book for couples wanting to start a family. Authors Lauersen and Bouchez map out all the basics for improving your chances -- from basal thermometers to proper diet -- and add tips for improving your baby-making skills. They also explain fertility testing and provide hopeful information for couples who are having trouble with conception. I think it's the most reassuring guide around. And I know several couples who point to this book (especially the "Dozen Ways to Encourage Natural Conception" section as the one that helped get them pregnant.

Elisa Wares, Senior Editor

From Library Journal:

Lauersen, a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology andauthor of five other books, and journalist Bouchez describe how thereproductive system functions and what can go wrong. Encouragingreaders to use this knowledge to maximum advantage in order to achievepregnancy, they focus less on new technologies than on the practicalchanges couples can make in their everyday lives to enhance thepossibility of conception and successful pregnancy. The authorsexplain the effects of stress, exercise, work, and drugs, both legaland illegal, on fertility. They also provide information on the linksbetween diet and conception, the prevention of miscarriage, and anutritional plan designed to enhance fertility. The final section,"Personal Pregnancy Planner," is a six-month guide designed to "helpyou have a faster, easier, most important, healthier conception whenyou want to." This book provides practical advice without promotinga particular method, as did A. Toth's The Fertility Solution ( LJ2/1/91). It covers much of the same ground but in far less detail thanSherman Silber's How To Get Pregnant with the New Technology ( LJ2/1/91). Recommended for popular medical collections.
