Discover your own pathway to pregnancy
In Pathways to Pregnancy, you will find that there is no one “right way” to build a family, but there is one that is right for you. Mary Wong’s riveting accounts of her patients’ fertility struggles and success stories will inspire you to take charge of your health and discover your own
pathway to pregnancy.
Inside, you’ll discover:
- How to decode your diagnosis: What’s really happening inside your body, and what to do about it
- Why one of the best things you can do for yourself when trying to conceive is to stop trying so hard
- How to turn your body into a nurturing, welcoming environment for a baby, so that pregnancy can naturally occur
- How to choose between Eastern and Western medicine, or a combination of the two
- Why “miracle pregnancies” are more common than you might think—and how yours might be around the corner
This book will nourish the unborn mother in you and help you to navigate the world of fertility treatment, reduce stress, dispel shame, and renew your belief that you too can have the family you dream of.
