Book Giveaway: Making Babies by Sami S. David, M.D. and Jill Blakeway

Thanks to Anna and Hatchette Books Group, we have a giveaway of Making Babies by Sami S. David, M.D. and Jill Blakeway!

About the Book, courtesy of the Publisher:

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.

About the Authors, courtesy of the Publisher:

Sami David, M.D., is a reproductive endocrinologist. He was the first doctor in New York state to perform a successful IVF, though he now focuses on more conservative approaches to infertility.

Jill Blakeway, L.Ac, is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Board Certified Herbalist, and founder and clinical director of The YinOva Center, an alternative health service for women in New York City.
