Love shouldn’t leave your lovelife when you’re trying to conceive. Making babies should be hot, fun, and sexy – and that’s what this project is about.

Led by fertility expert Jani White Lic Ac MBacC, The Fertile Fizz is the creative quest of three women seeking to demystify the machinations of creation and explore the myriad ways in which we can bring the magic back where it belongs in our bedrooms.

Frank, witty, and underpinned by years of medical experience, The Fertile Fizz provides an arousing insight into the science and sensuality behind conception. White’s wisdom is simultaneously candid and comforting, providing practical guidance through the difficult problems faced by those trying to conceive, and offers direction out of the doldrums of scheduled sex.

When you think that one in four of those trying for a baby will encounter difficulties today, there could be no better time for this book. If this is not affecting you, it will be affecting someone you know.

This isn't yet another boring how-to book: it’s an invitation to enter into a journey of understanding of the endocrine and the erogenous in a book interlaced with beautiful illustrations (Carolyn Weltman) and verse that will leave you voracious for a close-encounter (Rebecca Deacon). It is a reminder of the need for tenderness in a world increasingly defined by automation and atomization, and a kind voice and competent hand through the troubles and guilt associated with fertility that are all too often shrouded in silence.

WHO WE ARE

AUTHOR
Jani White, Lic Ac MBAcC

Jani White is an internationally-renowned acupuncturist and lecturer with over two decades’ worth of experience in the field of fertility. White’s specialty is in her knowledge of all things hormonal.

When teaching couples how to best harness the chemistry of attraction in their pursuit of parenthood, White unites the best of Western and Chinese medicine with a charisma and candour that have become all too rare in the often sombre field of reproductive health.

ARTIST
Carolyn Weltman

Weltman describes her work as being “utterly and unashamedly ecumenical in [its] fascination with the human form and the imaginative capacity for loving its inhabitants”. Her raw, sensual style takes subjects drawn from life, embracing both their power and their vulnerability. Her illustrations imbue the book with the essence of the wisdom – both physical and spiritual – that White’s words impart.

POET
Rebecca Deacon

The poetry found between these pages is the unfurling of desire. It is the real-life correspondence of Rebecca Deacon and her gypsy pirate lover, telling a tale seduction, subversion, and sexual exploration.
