New Edition 2009

Are you trying to get pregnant or thinking about having a family soon? Starting a family is one of the biggest decisions to make in life, yet having a child is not always easy.

Making Babies is written to help you better understand your fertility and what it takes to get pregnant. It explains the process of getting pregnant and how to maximise your chances, how to protect your fertility, what lifestyle factors are important, what to do if you are trying for a baby and not succeeding, when and where to seek help, treatment options available, and all the recent scientific advances in the world of fertility.

Written by New Zealand's leading fertility specialists, Making Babies will help give you the answers and the baby you long for.

The desire to have a family is, for most of us, a strong one, and being unable to fulfil that basic need is enormously traumatic. Making Babies has been written to provide you with some understanding of fertility. This updated edition includes recent advances in IVF, lifestyle advice and current thinking about all aspects of infertility.

The physiological processes involved in reproduction are overviewed along with some advice on how to look after your fertility. Many people spend years avoiding pregnancy and then wish to become pregnant and we therefore discuss how to maximise your chances.

The book then concentrates on what to do if a pregnancy is not occurring, when to get worried, where to seek help, what tests will be done and the treatment options available. A chapter on endometriosis is included because this is a common problem which is often poorly managed, leading to fertility problems later on. We have added a new chapter on sperm problems, as sperm issues may be increasing in frequency.

We have also included a chapter on what to do when pregnancy does occur and potential problems in early pregnancy. A chapter on coping with the stress of infertility has been written by the counsellors at Fertility Associates. We have also included a list of support and information groups and societies in New Zealand.

We hope this book enhances your understanding of fertility and helps you have a baby.
