She is the author of Fertility and Conception and Plan to Get Pregnant, and the founder a private fertility and pregnancy clinic in London.

Review:

"Zita is often referred to as a fertility and pregnancy guru ... that's exactly what she is." * Kate Winslet * "Zita is a truly special woman. Her understanding and passion about all aspects of pregnancy and childbirth are second to none." * Ann-Marie Duff * "Pregnancy is a notoriously tricky time - most reference books deal only with worries and concerns in a traditional way. What every woman needs at a time like this is a confidante. Zita West is just that and more." * Ulrika Jonsson * "Best for pregnancy." * The Sun * "This book covers everything" -- January 2013 * Mother and Baby *
