Trying to conceive can be one of the most stressful times in your life. A time full of emotion, pressure, stress and often guilt. One of the most important times in life for your body to be in the best shape possible to give you the best chance of falling pregnant, having a healthy pregnancy and delivering the beautiful baby you’ve been waiting for.
It is also a time when some small changes can make a big difference to your fertility and your chances of conception. Simple dietary changes can improve ovulation regularity, improve the environment for the egg and improve the sperm health. On the other hand, the wrong advice can have the opposite effect, when you think you are doing the right thing.
Just the other day I read a wellness coach’s blog encouraging women to include saturated fats, like butter, in their diet to improve fertility. How many women followed the advice and started including more saturated fats, believing they were helping their chances of falling pregnant? Unfortunately, increasing saturated fats can actually reduce pregnancy rates. Healthy fats, like those found in olive oil, avocado and oily fish are the fats to include. They are associated with improved pregnancy rates. A simple change, right? Only if you have been given the right information though.
There is a great deal of misinformation on the internet. Well-meaning bloggers and wellness coaches, all hoping to help people through an important and often stressful time. It can be a minefield of conflicting information for prospective parents.
