Book Review – Is Your Body Baby-Friendly?: Unexplained Infertility, Miscarriage and IVF Failure – Explained

The book explains how the immune system can behave in a way that prevents a pregnancy from continuing. High levels of Natural Killer cells, genetic compatibility between partners and blood clotting problems are all significant causes of reproductive failure. Autoimmunity that can be inherited or environmentally triggered are a major reason for the increase in infertility and miscarriage today. This book also explains why such disorders are not just devastating to a pregnancy – they can also be markers of potentially serious health problems in the mother.

Dr Beer estimates that as many as 60% of women with endometriosis have autoimmune abnormalities predictive of IVF failure. Women with: PCOS, Raynauld’s syndrome, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraine, thyroid disorders and premature ovarian failure are also very likely to have autoimmune factors active according to Dr. Beer. Is your body baby friendly will help you to understand the hidden factors that may be at work, that coexist with other infertility problems which are often treatable once diagnosed.

This book will help you to understand how the immune system can repeatedly reject pregnancy in early implantation – and later – and how sophisticated immune testing and treatments can help. Genetic mutations such as MTHFR, immunologic and clotting factors that can cause repeated miscarriage are covered in detail along with their respective treatments.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has had an IVF or FET failure…even if you are having infertility issues it may shed some light on what may be the cause.
