Congratulations! You’re pregnant! Or you’re in the beginning stages of trying to get pregnant. Either way, this is an incredibly exciting chapter of your life and buckle up—because it can also be an overwhelming one. To put it bluntly, prepare yourself for information overload.

Or maybe you recognize that the internet is a slipper slope for you and you’re looking for 1-2 reliable sources to be your bible through this journey. Whether you’re looking for data, storytelling, anecdotes or just guidance on what to expect, I have compiled a list of the books I highly recommend you either read or listen to for every stage of your road to mama-hood in a non-overwhelming order. Without further ado, here are the books I think you should not pass up.

It Starts With The Egg

Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or through IVF, the quality of your eggs will have a powerful impact on how long it takes you to get pregnant and whether you face an increased risk of miscarriage. The latest scientific research has found that poor egg quality is in fact the single most important cause of age-related infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and failed IVF cycles.

Based on a comprehensive investigation of a vast array of scientific research, It Starts with the Egg reveals a practical and evidence-backed approach for improving egg quality and fertility, now fully revised and updated in 2019.

With a concrete strategy that includes minimizing exposure to toxins such as BPA and phthalates, choosing the right vitamins and supplements to safeguard developing eggs, and harnessing nutritional advice shown to boost IVF success rates, this audiobook offers practical solutions that will help you get pregnant faster and deliver a healthy baby.
