Fertility Books – The Best “How to Get Pregnant” Books

Reading fertility books is one of the best ways to get the best tips for getting pregnant! Here are some of the best “how to get pregnant” books I’ve read in the past three years…

“Most women ask themselves at one time or another what it means to mother – what the cost might be to their careers or marriages, how it reshapes the self,” writes Peggy Orenstein in Waiting for Daisy: A Tale of Two Continents, Three Religions, Five Infertility Doctors, an Oscar, an Atomic Bomb, a Romantic Night, and One Woman’s Quest to Become a Mother. “And all of us, male and female, encounter pain and loss; all of us reckon with dreams unfulfilled, with the limits our younger choices have placed on our later lives. All of us have to figure out how to move beyond that regret.”

Orenstein’s book is more of an infertility book than a “how to get pregnant” one; it describes her in vitro fertilizations, pregnancies, miscarriages, adoption attempts, and eventually having her daughter. Waiting for Daisy is a fascinating book that describes her psyche, marriage, and determination to get and stay pregnant — it’ll give you hope if you’re coping with infertility or tired of being disappointed every month when you get your period!

One of the most popular fertility books is Taking Charge of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health. A friend loaned me this book four years ago, and it’s been updated since then. It’s one of the best books on getting pregnant.
