While conceiving might not be at the forefront of most couple’s minds during the pandemic, this unprecedented time offers those who want to become pregnant a unique opportunity to improve their health and chances for conception, which is what Heather Grzych’s work is all about (Plus the Ayurvedic perspective she offers is valuable for all of us right now!)

Here’s what Chandresh Bhwardwaj, author of Breaking the Norms had to say about the book, “Getting pregnant is a sacred meditation. Heather Grzych has put together essential aspects of fertility in a way that’s easy to understand and comfortable to execute. This is a perfect book for all those who are looking to conceive a new life mindfully.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 10 percent, or 6.1 million, women in the United States have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant each year.
In The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility: A Natural Approach to Getting Pregnant (New World Library, May 5, 2020), author and Ayurvedic practitioner Heather Grzych offers a gentle, holistic approach to understanding the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of fertility based on Ayurveda, an ancient form of medicine that originated in India that means “the science of life.”
“I want to help you improve your overall health and your chances for conception so that you will have a better pregnancy and more ease as a mother down the road,” writes Heather. “Modern life has helped get you here, and now Ayurveda can help you better care for your fertility going forward.”
The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility outlines key fertility factors for women to consider as they prepare for pregnancy. The book provides practical exercises and practices that help women get down to the business of improving their health and setting up their environment to support their intentions. With insight and personal understanding, Heather helps women address conditions that affect reproductive health so that they can activate channels that have been dormant or blocked.
