With a foreword by NY Times bestselling author Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, CNS.

Can you change your eating habits and use a holistic nutrition strategy to improve your fertility and health during pregnancy? Yes!

For most couples, conception and a healthy pregnancy often take planning, timing, and a lot of patience, even for the most fertile. Throw in some pre-existing health conditions, a few genetic hurdles passed on from parents and grandparents, and you may find you are one of the approximately 7.5 million women in the U.S. dealing with infertility. 

In Baby Maker, Barbara Rodgers shares science-based research and facts that clearly describe the critical role nutrition can play on fertility, the growth of a fetus, and even genetic synthesis in a newborn baby. Baby Maker offers comprehensive options and a step-by-step plan for improving fertility (for men and women), strengthening the ability of a pregnant mom to carry to term, as well as a plan to support a mother’s health during pregnancy. Finally, there is basic information offered on how to jumpstart mom’s nutritional health immediately following delivery. This book offers hope to the millions of women who struggle with fertility. 

Barbara knows all-too-well the positive effect nutrition and lifestyle changes can make on the human body, as she did after dealing with the challenging, debilitating symptoms of MS for several years and eventually healing from them.

Editorial Reviews

"I sure could have used this book before, during, and after my VERY rocky pregnancy! While I was able to get pregnant with my son, I wasn't able to conceive a second time. My one pregnancy was fraught with challenges. I had morning sickness that stayed with me until the day I delivered, I gained nearly 50 pounds, and my mood swings were more dramatic than any other time in my life. My desire to breastfeed my beautiful baby boy became a nightmare, when my milk didn't come in properly. The doctor repeatedly (and rather frustratedly!) tried to assure me that, 'every mother makes the right amount of milk for her baby.' He couldn't have been more wrong; my son was STARVING! Eventually and much earlier than I wanted, I abandoned breastfeeding altogether.  This book could have changed all of that for me and my baby. Barb has done her research and provides a treasure-trove of specific information that will help you avoid so many of the problems I encountered. Having an education in Holistic Nutrition now myself, I know that so much of what I experienced was because my diet was lacking. Getting the right nutrients through food and supplements could have made my pregnancy more enjoyable, helped my milk come in properly, and might have set the stage for my dream of having a second child.  There's nothing more amazing than holding your baby in your arms for the first time. When you look into your baby's eyes, you'll want to feel confident that you did all you could to give him the best start in life. If you want to have the healthiest pregnancy possible, read this book and follow Barb's advice."
