Are you a woman wanting to avoid pregnancy and would prefer to use fertility awareness methods? Or to plan one? Or are you experiencing difficulties in conceiving? Are you a partner, or even family member or friend, of someone in that position? This book should be essential reading, and is highly recommended. It is written with warmth, understanding and expertise by two long-standing professionals in this field. Authoritative, based on clear evidence, it is designed to be dipped into, or read cover to cover, and will have something of interest for anybody. Authors Knight and Belfield have set out to write a guidebook that will reassure and answer just about every question you might have on the subject - and have succeeded.
In an age where pregnancy can now be a choice, women have never been in more need of authoritative yet supportive advice about that important decision. What Every Woman Needs to Know about Fertility, written by two experienced specialist health professionals meets that need, offering accurate information, focused insight and helpful guidance into both getting and not getting pregnant. The authors have effectively managed to inform and inspire their readers as they face (what I know from my work with clients who enter the battlefield of fertility) the huge challenge of conception or not. Essential reading for choosing the right reproductive options for you.
What an empowering read! It gives every woman who is (or is thinking of being) sexually active the calm and detailed facts to make effective decisions about her fertility - and is essential reading for partners too.
This highly informative yet easy-to-read book exploring fertility awareness will guide potential users through the complexities of managing their birth control without the need for hormones or barrier methods. Being able to understand how our bodies work is explained with the aid of informative images and charts. This book will also be invaluable for those planning pregnancies, highlighting the most fertile days and ensuring good preconception advice. I think this book will also be a welcome addition to the bookshelf of every healthcare professional working in the field of contraception and reproductive health, along with those in primary care and gynaecology.
A beautifully clear, detailed and up-to-date account of fertility awareness. This is the go-to book for those wanting either to avoid or achieve pregnancy.
This is the resource I wish I'd had to help discuss fertility with everyone - users, colleagues and students.
