Beware skeptics! This book isn't for the scientifically-minded. It's definitely for those of us who espouse the earthy-crunchy, trust-your-own-body-to-heal-itself mentality.

Essentially it outlines the fertility-enhancing tools that Julia Indichova loosely described in her first book, Inconceivable, with particular focus on the mind/body work that she did with detailed descriptions of different exercises. What comes through the most strongly is that Indichova wants us to believe we are our own best guides to our fertility--that no one modality or treatment is the ultimate answer. We must trust our own instincts, and see our doctors, acupuncturists, naturopaths/nutritionists, yoga instructors, etc. as consultants and not as the ultimate experts.

I'll likely return to this as a sourcebook, as the mind/body work she outlines is intriguing.
