When a couple has trouble conceiving, emotional factors can often be at play. While stress is a well-known factor affecting fertility, other more subtle issues can play a major role - such as unresolved fears about becoming a parent, childhood traumas, repressed emotions, self-esteem issues and relationship difficulties. Trying to Conceive provides fifteen real-life stories from women and men who were able to conceive only after they had taken a more holistic approach to pregnancy and resolved the emotional issues underlying their infertility. Mark and his wife Charlotte learned to work together as a team and made their relationship a priority before they fell pregnant. Suzanna resolved her feelings of anger towards her father before she conceived. Deb and Keith endured 23 IVF cycles and had to deal with numerous miscarriages before Deb radically changed her lifestyle and fell pregnant. Compelling, uplifting and often humorous, each of the fifteen case studies is complex and unique, revealing the need for individual solutions for each couple. Keywords: Preconception Care/Fertility
