Just thought I'd offer it up if y'all are interested. I just did a book review on a new book that was just released yesterday. It is a pretty interesting read…about improving egg quality and how it can help you get pregnant naturally, improve IVF success and prevent miscarriage. As a thank you for doing the review, the author offered my blog readers a download code to get the EBook for free now through April 15th. I thought the ladies on this board might be interested in this book…the link is on the blog post below.
