About The Author
Dr Xiao-Ping Zhai initially trained in western medicine in China. Studying the beneficial effects traditional Chinese medicine had on chronic conditions and underlying health, however, led her to gain an additional qualification in TCM. She has specialised in infertility treatment since 1995, has been voted one of Britain's 225 best private doctors by Tatler Magazine, and her Harley Street clinic now has a waiting list of many months.
