By Tasha Jennings

Hi, I want to talk to you today about how you can improve your chances of conceiving and carrying a healthy baby, even when Doctors say you can’t!

Not only can you increase your chances of conceiving, you can improve your chances of a healthy pregnancy and improve the lifelong health of your future baby!  And you can start doing it today.

Now, if you’ve been trying for a while, that might be pretty hard to believe.  I know how you feel.  I’ve been there. I know how it feels when every month that goes by your hope slips away with it.  The life you had envisioned of a happy family, of a baby and children to love and cherish, sharing their joys and watch them grow, feels like it’s slipping further away.  Yet your heart refuses to accept any other vision of your future.  Because this is the one you want.  This is the one you’ve always wanted.  And always assumed you’d have.

At least that’s how it felt for me.  Until I made some important changes.

Tasha Jennings and daughterMy names Tasha Jennings, Founder of Conceive Baby.  I’m a Naturopath, Nutritionist, Natural Fertility Specialist and author of the Vitamins Guide and the Fertility Diet, as well as host of the Conceive Baby Podcast and Webinar Series.  And I am now blessed with two beautiful children and am passionate about helping you achieve that same dream.

The reality is that you can positively influence your chances of falling pregnant and give your future child the best start in life by making some small diet and lifestyle changes now.

The fact is that as women we are born with around 1 million, potential eggs known as follicles.  By the time we reach menstruation, this number has reduced to around 300,000 – 400,000.  From here on, each month around 100 of these potential eggs begin the journey to become a mature egg.  This journey is a survival of the fittest.  Most of these potential eggs will naturally die off and the strongest, healthiest egg will burst from the follicle and be released from the ovary at ovulation where it begins its journey down one of the fallopian tubes and is swept towards to uterus.  It is during this 24 hour journey down the fallopian tubes where conception and fertilisation can occur.

The unfortunate reality is that even in healthy women, up to a quarter of the eggs you release at ovulation, aren’t viable.  They aren’t capable of making a baby.  If you’re over 40 this number can rise to around 40% with some studies showing it’s as high as 70-80%.  Now many doctors will tell you that you cannot influence the health of those eggs, that it’s simply up to chance.

But that’s not scientifically correct.  You can stack the odds in your favour, even if you’re over 40!

The development process from an immature follicle, to a mature egg ready for release at ovulation takes around 90 days.  It is during these critical 90 days prior to ovulation that you can significantly impact the health of your egg, increasing your chances of producing a healthy viable egg that WILL have the potential to become your future baby!  Not only does this improve your chances of conceiving, it improves your chances of a healthy pregnancy and can improve the lifelong health of your child.  It is during this critical time that you basically have the chance to pass on the best DNA possible to your future child.

For a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby, not only do you need a healthy egg, you also need a healthy, flourishing ‘home’ for this egg to implant.  You want a strong, healthy uterine lining to support implantation.  In ideal conditions, the menstrual cycle, which produces the monthly shedding and rebuilding of the uterine lining, will provide the perfect environment for implantation and the progression of a healthy pregnancy.  However, for some women, even with healthy eggs, the uterine environment may not be conducive to implantation and the egg ‘just won’t stick’.  These women have difficulty holding a pregnancy and are prone to early miscarriage.

Now these factors are obviously vitally important whether you’re trying to conceive naturally or via IVF.  But if you are going through IVF the stakes are just that much higher. If you’re trying to conceive naturally, one missed chance is obviously extremely disappointing, I know, but it is just one lost month and you’ll try again next month.  If you’re going through IVF on the other hand, one missed chance carries a huge emotional toll, not to mention the huge financial loss.  And reality is that you may not have ability to just try again next month.  Now I work with many fabulous IVF specialists who are supporting their patients egg and uterine health, however, there are many who are not.  So if you are going through IVF, you really want to be your own fertility advocate and make sure you give yourself the best chance of success first time round!

If you’re already a part of the Conceive Baby community you would know that  I truly believe, that being the best Mum starts well before birth.  Women will often spend days, weeks even months painting and decorating the baby nursery ready for the arrival of their new baby.  But, the most important ‘nursery’ your baby will ever have, is the one inside you.  The nourishing and the nurturing doesn’t start when your baby arrives, it starts now.  In fact, your baby will probably never know what colour their nursery was or what decorations were on the wall, but investing time in nourishing and nurturing your reproductive system will give your baby the best possible start in life and they will reap the benefits for the rest of their lives.

I’m thrilled to be presenting for one night only at Fertile Ground Health Group where I will be distilling my years of experience and collaboration with global fertility researchers into practical advice that you can start implementing today!

I will bust the many myths around paleo vs gluten free vs vegan diets, the impact of specific nutrients on fertility and give you the scientific facts.

You’ll walk away with a comprehensive understanding of the changes you need to make, in an easy to implement format including bonus downloads, check lists, recipes and charts that will make it really simple for you to start making these positive changes to improve your chances of achieving a successful pregnancy and start nourishing your future baby, today.

Whether you are trying to get pregnant naturally or going through IVF I understand the huge emotional toll, and the financial toll if you are trying through IVF.  And ultimately, you just want your baby here now!  I understand that feeling.  You don’t want to wait.  And the reality still is, the older we get, the less you can afford to wait.

I look forward to meeting you to help set you on the path to a healthier, more fertile you today!
