Are you tired of feeling alone and isolated on this journey to baby?
I get it. I've been there and I know how exhausted you must be feeling. With the lack of control that this disease brings on, there is one thing that we can control, and that is how we nourish our body.

What people are saying about Fertility Foods…
In my years in practice as a Reproductive Endocrinologist, one consistent question asked by both women and men is “What can I (we) do to improve chances to conceive?” Although a thorough medical evaluation is essential, many patients seek opportunities where they themselves can affect positive change. Engaging in a healthy diet and lifestyle is something patients can have control over to improve fertility. Knowing what changes to make, however, is difficult, and that is where Fertility Foods comes in! Mrs. Shaw and Mrs. Haas, both registered dietitian nutritionists, present scientifically-supported information in which readers can feel confident, and they present it in a friendly and readable manner. They take the mystery out of what to eat, how to eat and most importantly, why to eat a nutrient-dense diet to optimize fertility. And as a budding foodie myself, I can attest that the recipes are delicious!

Even if you're not trying to get pregnant, the book offers so many healthy, delicious, and nutritious recipes for any meal and snack. I'm such a fan of the Fertility Foods Cookbook.
