“Truly a breath of fresh air that is sorely needed by women today. There is another way – nature’s way.”
– Christiane Northrup, MD and New York Times bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
Why We Wrote This Book
Four years ago, while we were all having dinner together, Willow and Marcus mentioned they were on a six- month cleanse to prepare to conceive their first child. Willow told Christa she was looking for a holistic nutrition book that outlined the benefits of the baby’s growth at each stage through food and supplements and asked for a recommendation.
Christa could not think of a single one—and she’s built her business on being the go-to nutritional expert for thousands of people! So Christa, who’s practice had taken a turn to successfully helping women in their late 30s and early 40s conceive naturally, told Willow: “Let’s write it.”
The four years that followed brought endless brainstorming sessions, hours at the computer distilling years of collective wisdom and clinical experience, and the first-hand lessons learned from Willow’s two pregnancies—both after the age of thirty, and both of which successfully embodied the principles presented in this book.
We couldn’t be happier that you found us and truly hope the information we have to share gives you the knowledge and inspiration you need to move forward on your fertility and pregnancy journey with empowerment and confidence.
Cheers to making healthier babies and a healthier world.

What you will learn in the book.
In How to Conceive Naturally we look at pregnancy as a five-trimester process including preconception as the first tri, and post-partum as the fifth. Our book lays out an Avant-garde action plan for the healthiest pregnancy and most balanced mom. Starting with a three-month pre-conception cleansing and building process, we prepare both mom and dad to balance their bodies while building top quality eggs and super sperm. This phase addresses the idea of epigenetics which means how both mom and dad take care of themselves 90 days prior to conception will contribute different and better genetics not only to their children, but also to their children’s children.
For each of the traditional three trimesters, we layout which part of baby is forming and growing, empowering mom to eat the highest quality, targeted nutrients to assist that process to reach its full potential. This concept is referred to as fetal programming.
Our rock star arsenal of homeopathic, dietary, and holistic tools are included to keep mom happy and balanced so she can enjoy this magical process versus feeling overwhelmed, tired, and depleted.
How to Conceive Naturally wraps up with a post-partum action plan to balance hormones in half the time so parents can enjoy their new baby and shifting lifestyle. This addresses all aspects of nutrition but also lifestyle, stress, and coaching for how to make this period fulfilling.
No matter what stage of pregnancy a woman is in, this book will be her one-stop shop, and her trusted handbook for a 21st Century modern pregnancy. We quell the anxieties of how to eat, which natural remedies are safe, and what to do during pregnancy to love your baby and yourself while empowering a brand new mindset of true health and deep nourishment.
“How to Conceive Naturally” is a go-to, tried and tested approach to helping women create “super babies” in today’s ever-changing world.

When it comes to fertility, there are crucial facts that doctors don’t share with you which are vital to your future childbearing. I call it the fertility gap. The fertility gap is largely unknown and unacknowledged in mainstream medicine, and few women have access to the secrets that could boost your fertility naturally. Until now. Whether you are considering the possibility of a baby in the near future, or you simply want to keep your options open, or you’re a veteran of the fertility wars, this book has the food-based remedies you most need.

Struggles with fertility are at an all-time high. Studies have shown that processed foods and environmental toxins have inhibited the natural opportunity of both men and women to a degree that could plausibly threaten our species in the coming decades. Christa Orecchio and Willow Buckley have created the most coherent plan I have seen to date that will allow couples to use simple foods and at-home steps to take control of their fertility. They also give them effective strategies that will help them both with the new child and to assure their baby’s lasting health.
