Book Synopsis



Making Babies offers a proven 3-month program designed to help any woman get pregnant. Fertility medicine today is all about aggressive surgical, chemical, and technological intervention, but Dr. David and Blakeway know a better way.

Starting by identifying "fertility types," they cover everything from recognizing the causes of fertility problems to making lifestyle choices that enhance fertility to trying surprising strategies such as taking cough medicine, decreasing doses of fertility drugs, or getting acupuncture along with IVF.

Making Babies is a must-have for every woman trying to conceive, whether naturally or through medical intervention. Dr. David and Blakeway are revolutionizing the fertility field, one baby at a time.



Review Quotes




"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

"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

"Making Babies is an excellent, well-organized guide on how to get pregnant naturally. It combines the best of both Western and Chinese methods."-Marc Goldstein, MD, co-author of the upcoming A Baby At Last! and Surgeon-in-Chief, Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at New YorkPresbyterianHospital/ WeillCornellMedicalCollege

"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.



"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

"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

"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

"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
