Praise for Planting the Seeds of Pregnancy
"I run several fertility journey support groups in-person and online and we have collectively read pretty much every fertility book out there. I'm also a contributor to Still a Mother: Journeys Through Perinatal Bereavement -- a spiritual support book for the fertility journey -- so I understand from a writer's perspective what information is helpful (at least to me) to be conveyed. "Planting the Seeds of Pregnancy" receives five stars because it has excellent science-based research, blends the Eastern and Western perspectives on fertility, and is user-friendly. I find this book easy to dip into as a resource, as well as being read from cover to cover. I hope the authors will continue to update the book as new findings about fertility are discovered. This is a must-have for those who are beginning to think about conceiving and for those who are already well on their journey." Fiona McLeod
"As a licensed Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Practitioner I find this book very informative because it not only includes all the relevant information on fertility/conception/pregnancy from TCM's stand point of view, more importantly it also touches on various important topics such as recommended supplements, latest ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology), lifestyle advice etc. which would be very helpful for anyone who specializes in this area. I would recommend this book to my fellow colleagues if you are currently seeing fertility patients. This is a must-have book to enhance your clinical practice." - David Lin, LAc, 1st Choice Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine, Bellevue, WA.
"This is a must read for anyone wanting to get pregnant. I found the material very easy to understand and I am constantly referring back to it for everything, from what to eat (or foods to stay away from), to BBT, to going back to understand the IVF process. I have found Traditional Chinese Medicine to be most fascinating, also. I have been extremely fortunate to also be under the care of both Dr. Shahine and Stephanie Gianarelli, LAC, FABORM. I will continue recommending this book - I would equate it to my "Fertility Bible." - Amazon customer
