The following is the Introduction to "it takes two" by Dr. Judy Ford:
 
Introduction: "Nothing seems to be happening"
"We have been trying for over two years. We've tried IVF but that didn't help. Nothing seems to happen. Can you help us?"
 
"I have no problem getting pregnant but I've lost three babies at 9 or 10 weeks. Our doctor says he can't see any reason. We feel so helpless, such failures. We don't know what to do next. Can you help us?"
 
"My last baby was born very prematurely, is there anything I can do to stop this from happening again?"
 
Can I help? I hope so. In this book, I will share with you the things that I have learnt from working with couples, from my own research, and from the published research of other scientists.
 
There is always much more to learn. My personal commitment is to continue learning and to share that knowledge whenever I can. I hope I can help you solve your problem now.
 
There are many different parts to "getting it right". Even if you think some sections of the book don't apply to you, I suggest that you read them and think about them. Most of us have deeply ingrained messages from our childhood that greatly affect our adult lives. These childhood messages will be behind many of the things we do and accept as normal. I will give some examples where childhood messages have directly affected reproduction. I will also describe some of the many ways childhood messages can indirectly affect reproductive success. It is critical that negative messages are discovered.
 
Let us discover your problems for you, simply and quickly.
Dr Judy Ford provides a warm and friendly counselling service for couples with reproductive problems and others with illness arising from chemical exposure. EGS approach is to look at the whole person and how their previous life experiences and their lifestyles might be contributing to their problems.
 
Counselling can be conducted in person or by telephone at a pre-arranged appointment time. The client pays for the telephone call. 
 
Here are some comments sent to Dr. Ford in one of many letters of thanks:
"Dear Judy, After 15 years of trying to have a child, could it have been your simple suggestion of "…………….." We believe that your suggestion went a long way to us conceiving our beautiful boy, Simon, naturally. We are so thankful, ……"
