An authoritative guide focusing on the impact diet and lifestyle can have on couples looking to conceive.
While some couples looking to conceive can become pregnant quickly, this is not the case for all couples.
In fact, just over 15 percent of couples will take longer than a year trying to conceive-a statistic that immediately puts them into a bracket labeled "infertile." While there can be a variety of reasons for this, there are lifestyle choices-predominantly dietary-that couples can make that increase the chance of conception.
Ro Huntriss breaks down the science behind the effect nutrition can have on fertility. Split into two halves, the first chapter offers the science and research behind the dietary choices being advocated, while the second chapter includes 60 inspiring recipes to help readers achieve the health benefits.
As well as aiming to help couples looking to conceive, Ro Huntriss, who is currently in her mid-30s and actively delaying trying to conceive herself, is also spearheading an empowering movement for women who want to start a family after the age of 35-the age that classifies a woman giving birth a "geriatric mother." With the right diet and lifestyle, the age of remaining fertile can be maximized while also having a positive impact on new mothers healthily coming to term.
Based on scientific research, this is an inclusive nutritional guide for all couples, whether they are starting their journey to conception; are experiencing reduced fertility; or are looking at alternative routes to fertility, such as IVF.
