Interest in natural ways to improve fertility is soaring. For many people, it feels time to take control of their health to give themselves the best chance to get their body baby-ready and increase their chances of getting pregnant.

In her first nutritional health cookbook, she explains how equipping your body with essential nutrients ensures that your reproductive system is prepared for a successful pregnancy.

“Zita shows you how preparing for pregnancy and good nutrition is one of the most important investments you can make towards the health of your baby. I love to cook and the recipes in this book are great.”– Kate Winslet“Fertility guru Zita West has helped some very A-list mamas over her 36-year career as a midwife, including Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow. Out of her central London clinic, West boosts chances of conception through medicine and also by improving her clients’ overall health. And for those of us who can’t afford her pricey private fees, the good news is that her new cookbook, Eat Yourself Pregnant, provides a snapshot of her philosophies as well as a comprehensive look at what you should eat – and avoid – to boost your fertility.”– Metro (September 2, 2014)
