My review

Your Guide to Self-Care, Emotional Wellbeing and Medical Support. Discover how and why PCOS can affect your fertility. Find out from the experts and other women how they have overcome non-conception. Provides a step-by-step action plan to enhance your fertility. Includes information on how to work out which fertility treatments are best for you.

The nutritional answer for all women sufferers of polycystic ovary syndrome – providing practical plans for sufferers of PCOS. Explains how - with the right nutritional approach - you can lose weight, improve your skin, and overcome exhaustion, depression and mood swings. Various diets to suit each individual are provided with accessible explanations of nutritional science and hormonal health, and combined with an emphasis upon personal and emotional well-being.

Originally published in 1997, and now updated to cover all the latest developments and changes, this is a comprehensive guide to available IVF treatment. It contains information on: how the reproductive system works; the different causes of fertility problems; the drug and treatment options available; how will the treatments make me feel?; the medical technology - how does it work?; self-help and complementary medicine to help with fertility, and during IVF; IVF, infertility and your relationship as a couple; the alternatives - adoption and fostering. This also provides a guide to every UK clinic and hospital offering IVF.

A fully comprehensive guide which takes an in-depth look at the issues associated with fertility treatment, identifies the doctors pioneering new treatments, and details the services and standards of licensed fertility clinics in the UK. It gives up-to-date information on the treatments and services provided by licensed HFEA clinics, together with details of any NHS funding in your local area and the various financial options available, comprehensive ranges on complementary therapies and the role they can play in the management of infertility, and answers to questions and concerns likely to arise.

A truly inspiration story of a woman who did not give up her dream of motherhood despite her doctors telling her it was impossible.

A must read – especially for women with high FSH levels.


Another inspirational story which will add hope where there is despair.

This highly effective programme for women struggling to become pregnant draws on the proven, centuries-old techniques of traditional Chinese medicine to cure infertility. Explains clearly how any woman can identify the imbalances in her body - and how these imbalances can then be treated with a simple plan that entails lifestyle changes, diet, herbs and acupressure. On its own or in conjunction with traditional Western medical treatments, THE INFERTILITY CURE offers women hope - and what they desire most: a healthy baby.

Provides information on how to improve chances of conception and promote a healthy pregnancy via a natural programme of nutrition and supplementation. It contains advice on how to recognise and eliminate fertility-decreasing factors from both lifestyle and environment.

Explains in lucid, assured terms how to practice the fertility awareness method (FAM), a natural, scientifically proven but little-known form of birth control. By using simple fertility signs including peaks in morning body temperature and changes in cervical position and cervical mucus, it's possible to determine when ovulation is taking place.

It also features thorough, easy-to-understand explanations of hormones, the menstrual cycle and menopause, along with fertility tests and treatments and their long- and short-term side effects, plus a top-notch resource section. This is recommended for any woman who wants to better understand her body.

There is no better way to acquaint yourself with Louise Hay's than her book :You Can Heal Your Life. A bestseller for many years, it has been republished with bright beautiful illustrations. The timeless message of the book is that we are each responsible for our own reality and "dis-ease". Hay believes we make ourselves ill by having thoughts of self-hatred. She includes a directory of ailments and emotional causes for each with a corresponding affirmation to help overcome the illness.

Truly inspiration & heart lifting read !


Another Louise Hay classic -  focusing on how women have been brainwashed into believing that to be a "good" woman, they need to put everyone else's needs before their own. Louise aims to help women become the most that they can, seeking equality with men that will benefit everyone.

This book encourages every woman to be in control of her life. Makes the reader feel very positive, outlining affirmations to be made every day to help you make your own changes. A must for all women of any age!

The Natural Way to Alleviate Symptoms of Menopause, PMS, Endometriosis and Other Hormone-related Problems .

Quite possibly every female over the age of 12 will find this huge book enlightening, pain saving, and perhaps even lifesaving – definitely empowering and holistic. Northrup is a gynecologist who acknowledges the power of natural therapies and herbs, but also maintains that allopathic treatments, including surgery, are sometimes best. Here she covers the treatment of many physical concerns--among them PMS, menstrual cramps, breast cancer, fibroids, endometriosis, infertility, depression, childbirth, abortion, cystitis, and menopause--explaining how many of these physical problems have roots in emotional upsets.

A MUST READ for EVERY woman but especially beneficial to women who are pregnant or entering menopause. 

Whether you're trying to conceive for the first time, or want to understand how to get the most out of fertility treatments such as IVF, Zita West guides you through your options and explains how to maximize your chances of a healthy, happy, successful pregnancy.

More and more women are finding themselves entering their thirties and forties without children. For some this is a conscious choice, happily made. For others it is a more painful scenario. For those in the latter category there is little support - especially when treatment options have run out. This was the situation that Ginny Fraser found herself in, and the reason she wrote A Mother in my Heart - to try and find healing for herself. In the book she charts her progress from despair to acceptance, and includes the personal accounts of many others whose stories have provided inspiration. 

Menopause doesn't have to be a dreaded curse of ageing during which we can look forward only to hot flushes and hormonal mood swings. According to Christiane Northrup, MD menopause often marks the beginning of a woman's most sexually passionate, creatively inspired, and professionally productive phase of life.

It helps that Northrup has been through menopause herself (she vowed she wouldn't write a book on it until she was on the other side). Readers have the sense that they are gleaning advice from a knowledgeable holistic doctor as well as a sage aunt whose life was radically altered by the "change of life".
More than a guide, this book advises on coping with physical and emotional symptoms, decisions about HRT and alternative supplements. 

Doreen virtue – losing the pains of pain

Emotional, mental and physical abuse can cause people to turn to food for comfort, security, and even self-punishment. Through visualisation, affirmations, imagery, meditation, and healthy eating and exercise habits, Dr. Virtue shows you how you can break the damaging connection between emotional pain and overeating to uncover your true, natural self by shedding the false skin of unhappiness. First lose your pain, then the weight loss will follow!

I found this a great source of comfort when I embarked on my own weight loss regime.
