Introduction

Eat, Love, Get Pregnant:

A Couples Guide

D

iscovering you are pregnant, and giving birth to a child, are two of life’s greatest joys. For a man and woman to share their love in this special and unique way doesn’t just make the world go round, it makes our individual world the special place it is. To share our love not just with our partner, but with our children is, indeed, a gift that is beyond compare. For some of you reading this book, giving and receiving this special gift will be easy. Within a few months of “trying” you will be blessed with the news that you are pregnant – bringing new joy and new meaning to your life.


By Niels Lauersen, MD & Colette Bouchez

For others, however, things may not go exactly as planned. For some it may simply take a little bit longer than normal to conceive – you probably know by now, that Mother Nature has her own time-table, and it’s never the same for any two couples! For still others, however, the “pregnancy timetable” may begin to extend much further than you could have imagined. Weeks of hopefulness can turn into months of trying, and still no pregnancy occurs. And you begin to wonder … “Could something really be wrong – will I ever get pregnant?” But no matter what point you are in your pregnancy journey – just starting out, trying for several months, or unsuccessful at trying for 6, 8, 10 months or more what you will discover in this book can and will change your life. ·

If you are just beginning your journey towards parenting, what you will learn in this book will not only save you time and help you conceive faster and easier, but also help insure you have a healthier baby.

·

If you have been trying for a while – and getting a bit frustrated because you are not getting pregnant, this unique guide will shine the light on the simple, easy ways to identify the small lifestyle and nutritional changes that can speed up the process – and get you quickly and safely on the road to conception, and having a healthy baby.

·

If you have been trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant for an extended period of time, and have grown weary and frightened that you will never conceive, this book will help you assess and evaluate your personal pregnancy obstacles and teach you how to remove them and improve your fertility– so you can conceive, and give birth to a healthy, happy, smart baby sooner than you realize.

How can I make you these promises – and be so certain they can come true? Because the guidelines featured in this book have already been tested and proven to work on thousands of couples at my own Park Avenue fertility center in New York City – and at the clinics of many of my colleagues around the world. Certainly, if you or your partner have a serious, physiological problem standing in the way – such as blocked fallopian tube or the inability to manufacture healthy sperm – the information in this book will be extremely helpful, but it may not be


Eat - Love - Get Pregnant

quite enough to complete your journey to parenthood. For this you may need some medical treatment to overcome the specific medical problems that could be standing in your way. And the good news is that everything you will discover in this book will help maximize your fertility in ways that will encourage the success of any medical treatment you receive. That said, I can promise that for the vast majority of you reading this book, the information you will discover - on diet, lifestyle, nutrition, natural and Chinese herbal formulas, as well as how to solve the simple medical problems that stand in the way of pregnancy – can and will make the difference between infertility and fertility. And when it comes to giving birth to your beautiful new baby, well these same suggestions will help ensure you will have the smartest, healthiest, baby possible!

How My Plan Can Help You Throughout my 40 year career in medicine I have treated tens of thousands of patients just like you –and I have delivered more “miracle” babies than you can imagine often to couples who believed they never would conceive. Indeed, with each new “miracle birth” came a new story of struggle and frustration, of anger and fear – as many of these couples tried, on their own and sometimes with other doctors to get pregnant - and just could not make it happen. And while each patient is a unique and special individual, yet year after year I could see the success of my treatment plan – as described in this book - unfolding as one, by one, patients who could not get pregnant, or whose every pregnancy ended in miscarriage, were able to give birth to healthy, beautiful babies. As time went on and new research appeared, I was pleased to see that the natural approach which I had personally studied and developed for all these years was also being proven over and over in clinical studies. Moreover, as new research began to appear, providing even more evidence on the power of natural treatments to encourage pregnancy, I began to incorporate these new findings into my treatment plan as well . The end result was a program that could help even more couples to conceive - even when they were told by other doctors there was no hope. Finally, earlier this year, I decided to make this successful program available to everyone – and the idea of Eat, Love, Get Pregnant was born. I chose this title because


By Niels Lauersen, MD & Colette Bouchez

of the simple, yet powerful nature of this plan – a program that is so easy to follow, yet so effective that it will benefit every couple planning to conceive.

A Breakthrough Couples Guide To Getting Pregnant But as proud and as happy as I am to bring you not just the latest research, but the proven aspects of a program that has already helped thousands of couples conceive, I wanted to add still something more to this book – something I found was lacking in nearly all fertility and pregnancy books. And that is, the importance of couples working together, as a team, supporting one another and deepening their bonds of intimacy - and the important role that this too can play in a successful conception. Indeed, what many couples can never realize is that in the course of trying to find the road to parenthood, they detour off the path that led them to each other to begin with. I have seen many loving, soul-mate relationships all but crumble under the weight of trying to have a baby.


Eat - Love - Get Pregnant

But perhaps more important was the recognition that when a couple works together, within the bonds of love and intimacy towards a common goal, they can have a powerful impact on each other’s body chemistry. In fact, it can be an impact so strong that it has the ability to affect their own and their partner’s fertility in myriad ways. From hormonal activity controlling ovulation to brain chemistry controlling sperm production, you would be astounded at all the ways in which your relationship affects so many aspects of your health and your fertility. For all these reasons, I have created Eat, Love, Get Pregnant to be a true “couples” guide to getting pregnant – a plan that was created to be read and shared by the both of you. It is a lifestyle plan that incorporates not just your individual bodies, but your relationship as a whole, including how you eat, how you play, and how you share your love. Certainly you will find sections of this book that apply just to male fertility or female fertility, with specific suggestions according to gender. But what you will also find, as a theme running throughout this book is the importance of your relationship and your love, as it pertains to getting pregnant. For this reason it is my hope that not only will you and your partner read this book together, but that Eat, Love, Get Pregnant will help strengthen the bonds between you – and help you to always remember the real reason you wanted to have a baby to begin with: To show your love for one another by creating another wonderful human being to complete your life together.
