The Fertility Plan

A proven three-month programme to help you conceive naturally

The Fertility Plan

Infertility medicine today is all about aggressive surgical, chemical and technological intervention. But making babies originally was - and is still best as - a natural process. In the UK it is estimated that approximately 1 in every 7 couples have difficulty conceiving and 1 in 80 babies is born as a result of IVF treatment. While 75% of people seeking help with their fertility try alternative treatment, few doctors are aware of how the disciplines of Western and Eastern fertility treatment can be used together to achieve the best results. This is a unique collaboration that combines the best of Dr David's and Jill Blakeway's expertise. In THE FERTILITY PLAN they show that half of women who use IVF could have got pregnant without it if the right knowledge and advice were available to them, and they share their proven 3-month plan that increases women's chances of conceiving naturally.

Conceivability

What I Learned Exploring the Frontiers of Fertility

Conceivability

The “Jason Bourne of fertility” (The New York Times Book Review) presents a personal and deeply informative account of one woman’s journey through the global fertility industry. On paper, conception may seem like a simple biological process, yet this is often hardly the case. While many would like to have children, the road toward conceiving and maintaining a pregnancy can be unexpectedly rocky and winding. Lawyer Elizabeth Katkin never imagined her quest for children would ultimately involve seven miscarriages, eight fresh IVF cycles, two frozen IVF attempts, five natural pregnancies, four IVF pregnancies, ten doctors, six countries, two potential surrogates, nine years, and roughly $200,000. Despite her three Ivy League degrees and wealth of resources, Katkin found she was woefully undereducated when it came to understanding and confronting her own difficulties having children. After being told by four doctors she should give up, but without an explanation as to what exactly was going wrong with her body, Katkin decided to look for answers herself. The global investigation that followed revealed that approaches to the fertility process taken in many foreign countries are vastly different than those in the US and UK. In Conceivability, Elizabeth Katkin, now a mother of two, exposes eye-opening information about the medical, financial, legal, scientific, emotional, and ethical issues at stake. “A well-researched, informative, and positive account of a very long journey to motherhood” (Kirkus Reviews), Conceivability sheds light on the often murky and baffling world of conception science. Her book is an invaluable and inspiring text that will be a boon to others navigating the deep and “choppy waters” of fertility treatment (Publishers Weekly), and her chronicle of one of the most difficult, painful, rewarding, and loving journeys a woman can take is as informative as it is poignant.

I want to have a child, whatever it takes!

I want to have a child, whatever it takes!

In a clear and sincere way, Carmen presents in her autobiography the problem of infertility, representing it through the images in her paintings. She explores in the book her decision to paint chairs as a way of relief, chairs that express each one of her longings, each moment of sadness, each situation of powerlessness. The book is simple, beautiful and enriching. It's intention is to share her experience as a short cut for those who walk along this path of infertility.
