Pregnancy: things to think about

Quit smoking: As a smoker you decrease your chance of getting pregnant by 50% and think of the money you will save.

Get fit: A healthy body and a healthy weight both assist with conception.

Stop drinking alcohol: It’s a proven fact that getting pregnant is harder if you drink while trying to conceive.

Try to RELAX: Stress can interfere with normal ovulation and reduce sperm production in men.

Stay in bed, lay low after intercourse: After 10-12 minutes, sperm that is going to get into the cervix will be in the cervix.

Try not to drink tap water: Fluoride has been linked to lower fertility rates as well as lower sperm counts.

Eat tomato soup: There is a 2007 study that showed that men who ate one bowl of tomato soup a day boosted their fertility rate by 7 to 12% so stock up tomato soup.

Eat as much broccoli, spinach and asparagus as possible: Folic acid is so important for pregnancy. And steam your veggies to retain more nutrients and vitamins.

Avoid MSG: It has been linked to infertility. Don’t think it’s just a Chinese additive, it is used in many foods. Read the labels and where possible avoid or reduce all preservatives.

Make sure you wash all fruit and veggies: Pesticides and growth chemicals must be avoided at all costs.
