Firstly, I want to say that it’s great that you’re in this mindset and that you’re here.
The fact that you’re consciously preparing for your conception is going to go a long way in supporting the health of your future child and your pregnancy.
Once you become pregnant, you will not be able to use many of the natural therapies, supplements, herbs, and other dietary components that you could before pregnancy.
So before you get pregnant is the best time to take the preconception care step.
Keep reading to see my top three tips when it comes to preparing for pregnancy.
My Top 3 Tips for Preparing for Pregnancy
Start With a Fertility Cleanse
A Fertility Cleanse helps your body to have a kind of “reset”. Specifically, it helps your body by:
- Supporting your hormonal system
- Encouraging a healthy uterus
- Increasing circulation to your entire reproductive system
The Fertility Cleanse consists of a month long cleanse that gently helps support reproductive and hormonal health.
It’s important to do this ahead of time, because once you’re pregnant, you can’t do a cleanse like this until you are done breastfeeding.
Transition to a Whole Food Natural Fertility Diet
Eating the right type of diet helps to build up your nutrient stores, assists in hormone production and helps to support some fertility issues such as PCOS.
It is helpful to begin transitioning to a healthier diet that will benefit both you and your baby.
Here is some more information on fertility diet specifics, but generally, this is best:
Ideally, you’d be able to start transitioning to a healthy fertility diet three to six months before pregnancy, to give your body the best possible health benefits and build up your nutrient stores.
Begin Learning About Your Fertility with Charting
Fertility charting is extremely helpful when you are trying to conceive.
It can reveal to you if and when you ovulate, how your progesterone levels are, whether or not there may be a thyroid issue to talk with your doctor about, and how long your luteal phase is (this is important for implantation).
And surprisingly, research has shown that couples are often wrong about when they’re most fertile.
So, for this reason, fertility charting is a great tool to help you keep track of what’s going on in your body.
You can start fertility charting by using an app, but you could use good ol’ basal thermometer charting too. (Fortunately, there are many free charts online for this.)
Fertility charting helps you learn about things like:
- The length of your cycle
- The different phases of your cycle
- When you’re ovulating
- And so much more
This ensures that you’re trying for a baby at the times when you have the highest chances of becoming pregnant.
A lot of women wonder what they need to do to help their odds of conception.
You might have questions like, “Do I need to get testing?” or “What do I need to do?”
