Publisher's Summary

Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or through IVF, the quality of your eggs will have a powerful impact on how long it takes you to get pregnant and whether you face an increased risk of miscarriage. The latest scientific research has found that poor egg quality is in fact the single most important cause of age-related infertility, recurrent miscarriage, and failed IVF cycles.

Based on a comprehensive investigation of a vast array of scientific research, It Starts with the Egg reveals a practical and evidence-backed approach for improving egg quality and fertility, now fully revised and updated in 2019.

With a concrete strategy that includes minimizing exposure to toxins such as BPA and phthalates, choosing the right vitamins and supplements to safeguard developing eggs, and harnessing nutritional advice shown to boost IVF success rates, this audiobook offers practical solutions that will help you get pregnant faster and deliver a healthy baby.

very informative.

full of great info. voice was a bit too robotic and it might have been nice to have a place to take notes (especially when making a supplement plan) - might not be a great choice for audio specifically but the content was excellent

If you just want a solid plan heading int IVF...

This is it. I just wanted a solid plan to follow. Gout in if it works or not, I did what I could. So much of this fertility journey is psychological and being in the right headspace is necessary. This book will do that for you. Science. Research. A plan. Thank you.

It is full of so much good information and helpful tools to transition your life, even for those not trying to conceive. It gives you the tools you need to change your house to clean living and help better your life in so many ways. I have absolutely LOVED it.

Must Listen and Read

This book is like no other!!! I feel so fortunate that I found it. I am 41 and have suffered three miscarriages. After my last, I was determined to figure out if there was anything I could do. I feel like many of us pushing 40, or in our 40s feel like there’s nothing we can do to improve our chances besides seeing a fertility specialist. And while this may be the recommended course you eventually find yourself on, I was so relieved to find that there are things we have power over that can increase our odds at having a healthy baby. I scoured the shelves at bookstores, the library and the Internet trying to find any information on what I could do differently, and fortunately, someone recommended this book. It has given me so much hope. It is filled with great advice based on research, from eliminating “hidden” toxins, to which supplements to take to increase your odds and why. Rebecca Fett is so knowledgeable, and has really done her research. I actually bought the physical book first, but then decided I wanted to finish it quicker, so I bought the Audible as well. I am still in the initial few months of following all of her recommendations, and through the recommendations for blood tests to ask for, I have found I have Hashimoto’s and high insulin (both of which are linked to miscarriage), so I am taking steps to treat those. I already am feeling better with higher energy and brighter skin, so now we wait and HIGHLY recommend.
