I love this book! I think it's wonderful for any woman wanting to improve her health and lower stress while trying to conceive. After two week with this program I am feeling more relaxed, have more energy and am better able to curb feelings of frustration and anxiety. I can see myself using the tools in this book for the rest of my life.

I can highly recommend this book and program. Like many women, I was getting frustrated after a year of trying to conceive. When I finally did get pregnant, I miscarried at 10 weeks. My endocrine system was likely a factor. My partner and I didn't want to try IVF and drugs like Clomid until we felt like we had "tried everything" in order to conceive naturally. Having practiced yoga for over 13 years, and being a holistic health practitioner myself, I really thought I knew a lot about yoga, my body and natural health care. But there was so much fertility-specific information I did not know! This book brings it all together so beautifully. I also love the very positive and optimistic tone of the book. So many resources focus on "infertility" and "TTC"... this book focuses on the whole woman, and the process of conceiving and carrying a child to term-- from physical, spiritual, psychological and emotional points of view. The authors have really been there and know what they are talking about. I started a local book group and did this program with several other women in my area, and it was a wonderful experience. I conceived again around week 8 of the program, just three cycles after my miscarriage.

For anyone going through the fertility journey, I HIGHLY recommend this book! I have read several books and perused many articles on fertility but this book proved to be the most thorough and holistic. From nutrition to exercise to prayer, it covers every aspect that should be considered while trying to conceive. And even if you're not successful in getting pregnant, the information shared in the book will assist in leading a healthy lifestyle. Thank you, Beth and Tami, for using your gifts and sharing them with others. Namaste.

For anyone who believes in the power of the mind-body connection for healing, you'll find this book invaluable. In confronting my/our own infertility, I first did a lot of reading about diet, nutrition, and infertility treatments, all very helpful in their own way, most certainly. But I am convinced that this book.... this book... is what truly helped most. It not only addresses the physical aspects of maximizing fertility, it also lifts the reader to a strong place for braving the darkness of inner fears and failures, with the sense of being truly supported by women who know exactly what we the reader are going through.

The yoga routines were easy to learn (I consider myself a moderate beginner), and the visualization exercises were very liberating and very helpful for finding and freeing positive energy. I didn't get the chance to use this book for the full twelve weeks, (though I read most of it, I wished I had more time to really engage with all the material at a slower pace) before emarking on our second round of in vitro (IVF). I faced the treatment with more calm and peace and happiness than I knew was within me. My son was born a year ago, and I believe the good energy and mental state this book brought alive in me was instrumental in his arrival.

We're trying to have a second child now. Since I gave my original copy to the (wonderful) doctor who guided us through both IVF treatments, I am back online, looking for a replacment copy, and thought it was due time for me to write a review. There isn't another resource I remember as well or plan to look for this time around.

As part of the pilot program for this book I was so blessed with not only the information and insights that the authors so freely shared, but by the support I feel they gave me during this difficult journey. The enlightenment and encouragment helped me see beyond this desire and discover who I really am. Acupuncture, yoga, nutritional information, meditation and the words of this book allowed me to find balance and peace again. I'm eternally thankful for this book!

I like this book and enjoy reading it. I like stretching and doing the poses in the privacy of my own home. I also enjoy reading it before bed. It's a thick one so you just pick and choose which ones you'd like to do. This book comes in handy when I'm on vacation and want to do yoga but can't remember the poses. It's a must take wherever you go if you enjoy yoga even if not trying to get pregnant. I gave PCOS a severe case so it's not the books fault. I will need other treatments.

Finally there is a book that empowers and educates women in their own fertility. This book is easy to follow and understand, I learned a lot. The yoga poses and the information about acupuncture and meditation helped ground and encourage me. I'm sure a lot of women (and couples) will be helped by this material.

This book spoke to me in so many ways. Having the foundation of a solid yoga practice and spiritual growth interest allowed me to absorb the contents immediately.

I've read other fertility books that focus on nutrition or other specific areas, but this book is unique in that it's holistic approach brings fertility to life, for all areas of your life, in a balanced (non-obsessive) way.

I am grateful for Beth, Tami, and Jeanie's openness in sharing their stories, knowledge and experiences!
