Contents of the book

Born from the experience of Laura Enrica's blog, the book "Waiting for a pregnancy" (first edition - April 2016) is an innovative proposal to manage the expectation of conception from a practical and emotional point of view.

The 360 ​​pages of the book, full of information and reflections, provide all the elements to positively intervene at 360 ° in one's life project.

The management of negative emotions and practical aspects, including the identification of fertile days, is undertaken through valid tools, including the acquisition of knowledge on reproductive mechanisms and observation of one's body, reasoned information, awareness of the role of pre-mother and the consequent modality of action and interaction with the doctor aimed at achieving the life goal more quickly and effectively.
