Have you been trying a while?
Starting to feel stressed, afraid its never going to happen or maybe you're feeling despair and despondency ?
This is a horrible place to be, and mostly unnecessary, I know because I am in the very honoured position of supporting women who had been feeling just like that.
These women almost always walk out of their first appointment smiling, feeling more confident, more positive and more purposeful. I can't promise every couple their longed for baby, but I can certainly help them increase their chances enormously, and give them the certainty that they have done everything they could to realize their dream.
Here are 4 powerful steps you can take to improve your fertility and your conception success.
1 Educate Yourself - When you improve your understanding of your body and the various tests, results and procedures you can make decisions calmly and confidently and become your own advocate. Read books and research articles, ask questions of your practitioners and discuss the answers.
2 Create your Team - finding the right support is going to make a huge impact on your journey to baby, not just how long it takes to achieve your dream - also your resilience, your emotional health and vitality along the way.
Your team may comprise a natural fertility specialist, acupuncturist, fertility coach, kinesiologist, counsellor, fertility specialist, endocrinologist, GP or personal trainer. We all have different needs, the right team is going to be your tribe, your cheering squad, your hand held out in support on the tough days.
3 Investigate, investigate, investigate - no-one likes being poked and prodded but the reality is, deeper, more thorough investigations gives greater understanding and faster, better results. Sometimes you will need a practitioner who is committed to digging deep to find out what is really going on. There is always a reason for your fertility struggles, it may not have a neon light flashing above it, it may be take a little more time to discover, keep digging until you discover it.
4 Its in the details - Make all of the day-to-day changes you need to make to become the best parent you can for the baby you are are waiting to conceive. Begin to eat a wholefoods diet, commit to a fertility friendly diet, avoid EMF, get more nature time, connect to one another, reduce exposure to toxins at home and at work, get better at self care and mindfulness. The research shows, with not a shadow of doubt, these efforts will be repaid on your fertility journey, these are the best ways to increase the health of eggs, sperm, embryo and the implantation site.
It can be hard to know where to start or to implement these changes and stay on track, this is where a good team is fundamental.
