Donielle Baker (of the Naturally Knocked Up blog) just released her book of the same name — Naturally Knocked Up. I love this book!

In fact, now that I’m done reviewing it and interviewing Donielle for today’s podcast, I’m going to lend out my copy to a dear friend. When she gives it back, I will give it to another friend. And then I might re-read it myself before loaning it out again. 😉

You might think this is a book for women who are having trouble getting pregnant, and you’d be right about that. But it is for just about everyone else, too.

Sons, daughters, husbands, women who are done giving birth. In other words, everyone!

Click here to see the amazingly complete table of contents. (After you click the link, click on “click to look inside”.)

As you’ll hear when you listen to my podcast, I’m so grateful to know this important information about natural fertility — and I can’t help but think how it will help me help my children prepare for that special time of life when they’re starting families and trying to conceive. Not to mention my friends and loved ones!

Donielle and her publisher are graciously giving one reader at GNOWFGLINS a free copy of her book Naturally Knocked Up. See below for how to enter.

However, you can always go ahead and buy it right now. :) Click this link or the image below to go to to place your order.

  1. Julia says

    I would like to win this for my sister. She struggles with miscarriages, so my question is can a real food eating lifestyle help prevent miscarriages?

  2. Kalli says

    I liked another commenters question so much I’ll ask the same. What is the best way to help a friend through infertility? Also, how to tell them the way they are eating may be linked to their infertility?

  3. Amy S. says

    Is there a reasonable amount to time to expect/hope for results when eating a traditional diet? Also, what if your husband is not quite on board, how much will his lack of proper eating affect our chances of conceiving and the (future) babies health?

  4. Leatha says

    If I could ask the author wrote one question, it would be… what can I do naturally to decrease my chances of having an ovarian cyst?

  5. says

    What a wonderful topic. There are so, so many people who could use this book. Thanks for the giveaway and the great podcast :) If I could ask Donielle one question, it would be “does she have a certain supplement she believes is the best for infertility?”

  6. Anna Rodriguez says

    My question would be: how long would be realistic to expect a dramatic change in diet & lifestyle to reverse the effects of a lifetime of not following these guidelines, or can it ever truly reverse?

  7. Emma says

    I would love to win the book, especially to help my sister, who is battling infertility after having 2 children naturally, without worry of infertility.

  8. Emma says

    My question is: What happened to my sister’s fertility after her 2 children were born? Is it the husband/chemical farmer?

  9. says

    I have a sister who eats really well, but is kind of high strung and doesn’t get pregnant easily. Do you have any strategies for calming a person like that?

  10. says

    Does black mold exposure affect the hormones in such a way to cause or contribute to a miscarriage and if so, how can one go about detoxing and getting hormones back to normal?

  11. says

    Do you know if pcos stays with a woman forever? Even after she’s done having children? I have an aunt who I believe has it. She’s not wanting to have any more children as she is just over 50.

  12. says

    I Have had cancer three times in my life. Chemo twice and then fought it naturally the third time, what advice would you give someone like me, as my husband and I are trying to have children?

  13. Abdi Bertram says

    Is there books that you would recommend to inform/educate teen girls about the dangers of the pill? What diet would you recommend for little girls then teen girls to help prepare for childbearing years? Is there a muti vitamin for teens that you would recommend? or real foods to target menstrual problems we notice?

  14. Michelle says

    I’d like to ask her about how to broach the possibility that diet might be the culprit in others infertility.

  15. Constance says

    It seems to me that there must be a link between teen fertility and nutrition as well as poor health habits and adult infertility, could it possibly have something to do with toxicity or the lack of adequate nutrition brought on by years of poor health habits?

    An inspired parable reads that “if the seed is good and does not take root, then it is not because the seed is bad, but because the ground is barren”. Or in other words, if I do not provide an environment to allow life to thrive, then the toxic environment takes over.

    I have had this heavy on my heart and I look forward to reading Naturaly Knocked Up.

    • Caitlin says

      I have wondered about this myself, having been a teen mother and now struggling to get pregnant in my late twenties. I do think there is something to be said for peak eggs/ peak soil, meaning we do enter the golden years of fertility a couple of years after our cycles have become properly established….it seems like everything works better when you are younger. Then again, I was in excellent physical shape in my teens, not awesome now…. food for thought. thanks for bringing this up!

  16. Rebecca says

    I definitely need to read this book. My best friend has been struggling with infertility for a few years, and I’m beginning that journey myself.

  17. says

    Thank you for offering a free copy to us. ;o) I have been interested in this topic for a while now and would like to ask Donielle: “What herbal teas would you recommend to women who are trying to get pregnant.?” I know that Raspberry Leaf Tea and Tulsi are beneficial but how about some other ones? Thank you! Anna

  18. gabriella says

    My question would be: Can nutritional factors contribute to miscarriage, particularly early miscarriage? Thanks so much.

  19. Mira K. Bryan says

    I see this has been asked but my question would also be how to help and share this info with a friend who is infertile.

  20. Teresa P. says

    I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS and Insulin Resistance. What natural methods do you recommend for reversing my symptoms and stimulating ovulation?

  21. Tiffany A. says

    I would ask Donielle how I can best help friends dealing with infertility to consider traditional food as a possible solution without being pushy.

  22. says

    I would love to wont this book. We’re currently a year into TTC. I guess my question would be, what natural diet and supplementation would be good for the male partner to follow to increase his fertility?

  23. Sarah says

    Do you have any specific recommendations for very overweight women and attempting a pregnancy (aside from the obvious, lose weight, which I am trying to work on). Thank you!

  24. Kari says

    The question I would ask – Is what about Endometriosis…I am past childbearting – but am hoping to be a grandma someday (soonish), and there are some problematic familial tendencies.

  25. l says

    What’s the one thing that you feel is the most helpful? If you only had the time or money for one of your suggestions, which would you do?

  26. stefanie says

    Can having sinus drainage or a cold affect the amount of cervical mucous you have? I googled and asked on another forum but nobody has given me a definitive answer. Maybe you can help! Thanks
