National Women’s Health Week

This week marks the National Women’s Health week, which begins each year on Mother’s Day. It is a reminder to women to take care of themselves, and to make their health a priority. Did you know your health and habits have a big impact on your ability to conceive and carry a pregnancy? Even minor stressors on the body may affect your ability to conceive.

Minor stressors include not eating right, not getting enough exercise, smoking, and alcohol consumption. However, exposure to certain pesticides and chemicals, the amount of sleep you get, hydration, and caffeine intake also have an impact. So what steps can you take to start being the healthiest self you can be?

To improve your physical and mental health, you can:

  • Visit a doctor for a checkup and preventive screenings.
  • Exercise!
  • Eat healthy.
  • Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
  • Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking and alcohol consumption.

We were recently introduced to a website named MomLovesBest.com. On it, you'll find a comprehensive guide called How to Get Pregnant Faster. It may contain some useful new information for those of you trying to conceive.

Have you tried everything under sun already to conceive?

Before you leap forward into in-vitro fertilization, you may want to consider embryo adoption. Rather than making more embryos, you receive a gift of embryos that already exist and are waiting for a forever family! Is it possible that embryo adoption will be the solution that brings a sweet baby into your loving arms? Visit EmbryoAdoption.org for more information.
