Wendy Wasserstein
These days the name of Sami David, M.D., is on everybody's lips....He's a prophet, a sage, a poet, a priest. He's the answer to every mid-thirtyish woman's prayers.
New York Woman
From the Publisher
"These days the name of Sami David, M.D., is on everybody's lips....He's a prophet, a sage, a poet, a priest. He's the answer to every mid-thirtyish woman's prayers."—Wendy Wasserstein, New York Woman

" Making Babies is an excellent, well-organized guide on how to get pregnant naturally. It combines the best of both Western and Chinese methods."-Marc Goldstein, MD, co-author of the upcoming A Baby At Last! and Surgeon-in-Chief, Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital/ Weill Cornell Medical College

"Ask a fancy reproductive endocrinologist about acupuncture and you're likely to hear, 'If it relaxes you, it's fine with me.' In other words, the official position of the high-tech fertility folks on traditional fertility medicine amounts to benign ignorance. Making Babies will change that. Here's proof that traditional and modern methods work, and not only that: they work better together. This is very good news for mothers, fathers, and babies."-Nina Planck, author of Real Food for Mother and Baby: The Fertility Diet, Eating for Two, and Baby's First Foods.

" Making Babies is a must read for any woman who wants to become pregnant. Its unique, holistic approach to conception encompasses traditional Western and Eastern medicine, proven alternatives, and lifestyle modifications. It offers women (and couples) solid medical information and advice that can help them increase their chances of conception, often in the quickest, most cost-effective, and least invasive manner."-Joan Liebmann-Smith, Ph.D., coauthor of The Unofficial Guide to Getting Pregnant and Body Signs: How to Be Your Own Diagnostic Detective

"Filled with invaluable guidance from two seasoned, brilliant clinicians, Making Babies can speed up the arrival of your child without depleting your ovarian reserve or your bank account. It might even save your life."-Julia Indichova, author of Inconceivable

" Making Babies is a marriage made in heaven. The best of western medicine combined with the yin-yang approach of the east. The end result? Restored fertility and vibrant health. Lovely."-Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"We applaud the main message of this book: improving your health improves your chances of fertility. Making Babies is a must-read for couples wanting to increase their chances of conceiving."-William Sears, M.D. and Martha Sears, R.N., co-authors of The Pregnancy Book and The Baby Book

"This dynamic medical team provides easy to understand viewpoints from the ancient system of Chinese medicine along with practical advances in Western reproductive technology. Simple, informative, and entertaining, Making Babies gives you answers, and hope."-Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure

    Fantastic book for anyone trying to get pregnant!

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is trying to get pregnant. In particular if you are having trouble, or think you may have trouble conceiving. It breaks down many different problems, symptoms, and gives you detailed information about natural ways you can help yourself, and also gives you an idea of how to know when you are probably going to need some time of fertility intervention. It has personal stories in it that are really motivational. I am trying some of the ideas of the book and hoping it will work for me!

    Good information and easy read

    I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to become pregnant whether they are having trouble or not. It gives good recommendations and health practices overall. The book addresses issues that you may not think would interfere in becoming pregnant. As someone who has gone the medical intervention route, it answered some of the questions that I had on why some things were done. It is like having your own "fertility doctor" at your fingertips and clarified many of the protocols related to assisted reproduction. Both the medical and holistic perspectives are addressed. The personal stories made you feel like you were not alone and that there is hope.
