IʼM HERE TO HELP
Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here!
I know all too well what you may be experiencing right now. Iʼve been helping patients like you for all my professional life. If youʼre ready to get pregnant, itʼs such an exciting time in your life! Youʼre probably dreaming about life with your new baby to come.
Learning about the things you need to do to maintain your egg quality and increase your chances for success with a natural conception is a great place to start. Thatʼs where I can help you now: age is the most significant factor in ovarian function and egg quality. Your ability to have a baby declines significantly after the age of 35. Please know that worrying about it is not going to help you.
Eliminate stress as much as possible, maintain a level head, live a healthy lifestyle, and give yourself six to twelve months of well-timed relations around the time of ovulation to get started.
Along with that, you must make sure your reproductive system is working well and this is something your doctor must assure you of. Conception requires a balanced mind-body collaboration. If you rule out basic fertility issues and keep your mind and body in sync, you will soon achieve your goal. Many of my patients did.
Trust me, you can do it too!
WHAT MORE COULD I BE DOING?First of all, be calm–trust me. Stress sabotages your bodyʼs ability to get pregnant. Easier said than done? I know. To alleviate your fears and eliminate any potential factors that might make it take a little longer than expected, you should visit your physician and ask these questions:
- Is my body and mind in a healthy balance?
- Are my ovaries producing enough eggs and of good quality?
- What is the quality of the semen of my partner? Is there oxidative stress and DNA fragmentation?
- Is my uterus normal and are my fallopian tubes open?
Selfcare is keySTRESS IS A SABOTAGE
Preparing your body for whatʼs about to happen is key. You’ve probably made adjustments to your diet and routine, but what more could you be doing? Your body goes into overdrive preparing for your bundle of joy. Within days of conception, your body starts creating critical structures to support the babyʼs growth and development.
“As soon as the implantations starts, the placenta starts developing also; a healthy placenta will secure a
healthy pregnancy, a healthy newborn, and a healthy adult. Yes, your
placenta defines the health of your baby all the way to late life.”
