Fertility & Post-partum Essentials -

"Restoring Fertility, Yoga for Optimal Fertility" DVD Series 
was developed by 2 acupuncturists specializing in reproductive medicine - Brandon Horn, PhD, LAc (FABORM) and Wendy Yu, PhD(c), LAc (FABORM). This DVD combines the wisdom of Chinese medicine and acupuncture meridian energy with yoga poses specifically for each phase of a woman's monthly cycle, to optimize fertility.

"Eat Right 4 Your Baby" by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo

is based on the popular and successful Blood Type Diet, this book contains the dietary guidelines we recommend to our fertility patients to minimize the negative health reaction to foods which may be incompatible with one's own personal chemistry. This is especially important for women who are trying to conceive. This style of eating (not a diet) is easy to switch to and really helps to optimize health and the rate of conception.
(We offer blood type testing in our office. It only takes a few minutes to get the results.)
