Editorial Reviews


"Rebecca Fett's first edition of 'It Starts with the Egg' revolutionized the way the fertility community viewed supplements and the impact of environmental toxins on reproductive health. Through summarizing evidence-based research, she took the guess work out of recommendations. I'm thrilled to have a new edition to recommend to my patients.
Dr. Lora Shahine, M.D., FACOG, Director of the Center for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss at Pacific NW Fertility, And Author of "Not Broken: An Approachable Guide to Miscarriage and Recurrent Pregnancy Loss."

"With detailed, up to date research Rebecca Fett provides a clear, cool-headed guide to both the science that determines IVF success, and the practical changes that patients can make to drastically increase their chances of IVF success." - Dr. Lindsay Wu, Laboratory for Ageing Research, University of New South Wales Medical Center, Australia. 

"Rebecca Fett's stellar constellation of perspective, experience, knowledge, and scientific background may well revolutionize our current global conversation, understanding and practices related to fertility... It is hard to overestimate the impact that this book may have on the lives of many." - Dr. Claudia Welch, author of Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life.

"It Starts with the Egg presents a reasoned and balanced review of the latest science linking environmental chemicals to reduced fertility and other health problems. Readers will find sound advice for how to avoid chemicals of concern, providing a useful guide for couples that want to improve their chances of a healthy pregnancy." -  Dr. Laura Vandenberg, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, School of Public Health.

"With 'It Starts with the Egg,' Rebecca Fett delivers a much needed overview on the available scientific evidence regarding the influence of nutrition on fertility and fertility treatment, providing a valuable resource for couples trying to conceive." - Dr. John Twigt, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Erasmus Medical Center, Netherlands.

"This is a very useful resource: well-researched, accessibly written and with easy-to-follow take-home messages and action plans. I would recommend this to any woman who is trying to conceive." - Dr. Claire Deakin, University College London.

"Rebecca has done a great service for all women, children, and future generations by starting at the beginning of a human life and examining which toxic chemicals cause harm to the egg... This book is a wonderful addition to the growing library of information on toxic exposures." - Debra Lynn Dadd, Author of Toxic Free: How to Protect Your Health and Home from the Chemicals That Are Making You Sick. 

"Rebecca Fett's 'It Starts with the Egg' is a complete guide to everything a woman can do to improve her egg quality before trying to conceive..."It Starts with the Egg" also breaks information down in easy-to-digest bullet points that show exactly what to do to get to where you want to be: the parent of a happy, healthy, gorgeous baby." - Cheryl Alkon, author of Balancing Pregnancy With Pre-Existing Diabetes: Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby.

From the Author

Additional Editorial Reviews: 

"It Starts With The Egg uses the latest fertility research to show that women can take a proactive stand in assuring egg health and production, complimenting physician efforts to support fertility and health. Thus the specific strategies offered here are solidly backed by the latest medical research, not idealism; and they provide women with step-by-step options that are easily followed and clearly outlined...The text is lively, easily grasped, and blends solid science with all the background readers need to thoroughly comprehend the subject, from the history of fertility efforts to modern doesn't get any clearer, more contemporary, or any easier than It Starts With The Egg. Any aspiring parent needs to add this self-help primer to their fertility program!"
- Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

"For couples or individuals thinking of conceiving, and for those who have endured miscarriages, or been labeled with low fertility, this practical rendering of how to improve one's chances for pregnancy should be required reading."
- San Francisco Book Review               

"I wish this book had of been available when I first commenced IVF and before I miscarried four babies; it would have prevented me from some of the blind alley's and false turns I have pursued. In my view, this is a must read for those who want to get pregnant naturally and are having some difficulties, for those undertaking IVF, and for those who have experienced multiple miscarriages. I could not put this book down, riveted as I was to the simple explanations of complex science. I now find myself informed and empowered regarding the reasons and possible solutions for my infertility. It all makes much more sense now." 
- Carolyn Martinez, The Compulsive Reader
