"These days the name of Sami David, M.D., is on everybody's lips....He's a prophet, a sage, a poet, a priest. He's the answer to every mid-thirtyish woman's prayers."―Wendy Wasserstein, New York Woman
"Making Babies is an excellent, well-organized guide on how to get pregnant naturally. It combines the best of both Western and Chinese methods."-
"Ask a fancy reproductive endocrinologist about acupuncture and you're likely to hear, 'If it relaxes you, it's fine with me.' In other words, the official position of the high-tech fertility folks on traditional fertility medicine amounts to benign ignorance. Making Babies will change that. Here's proof that traditional and modern methods work, and not only that: they work better together. This is very good news for mothers, fathers, and babies."-Nina Planck, author of Real Food for Mother and Baby: The Fertility Diet, Eating for Two, and Baby's First Foods.
"Making Babies is a must read for any woman who wants to become pregnant. Its unique, holistic approach to conception encompasses traditional Western and Eastern medicine, proven alternatives, and lifestyle modifications. It offers women (and couples) solid medical information and advice that can help them increase their chances of conception, often in the quickest, most cost-effective, and least invasive manner."-Joan Liebmann-Smith, Ph.D., coauthor of The Unofficial Guide to Getting Pregnant and Body Signs: How to Be Your Own Diagnostic Detective
"Filled with invaluable guidance from two seasoned, brilliant clinicians, Making Babies can speed up the arrival of your child without depleting your ovarian reserve or your bank account. It might even save your life."-Julia Indichova, author of Inconceivable
"Making Babies is a marriage made in heaven. The best of western medicine combined with the yin-yang approach of the east. The end result? Restored fertility and vibrant health. Lovely."-Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
"We applaud the main message of this book: improving your health improves your chances of fertility. Making Babies is a must-read for couples wanting to increase their chances of conceiving."-William Sears, M.D. and Martha Sears, R.N., co-authors of The Pregnancy Book and The Baby Book
"This dynamic medical team provides easy to understand viewpoints from the ancient system of Chinese medicine along with practical advances in Western reproductive technology. Simple, informative, and entertaining, Making Babies gives you answers, and hope."-Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure

The 3-month program is awesome and I really love that they offer different plans for different "types." Most books only have umbrella advice that may not be best for one couple versus another.
A must-read for anyone trying to get pregnant.
I can't say exactly HOW this book helped -- but it surely did something! I seriously recommend all couples TTC to read this book (AND Taking Charge of Your Fertility). You will be armed with so much knowledge and power over your health.
Last - I just wanted to extend a HUGE thank you to Jill Blakeway, one of the authors, who responded to an email that I sent her within MINUTES. It was personal, thoughtful, and I cannot say how much it means to have people in the medical profession, Western and Eastern alike, that truly support the quest to conceive. A million times, THANK YOU!
