Conflicting Advice: What should you avoid when trying to conceive?

podcast Jun 29, 2021

Eating whole grain gluten is good for your fertility. Don’t eat gluten at all - it’s bad for your fertility! Your IVF specialist says one thing, your acupuncturist says another who do you listen to? Well if you’ve been following me for a while, you know that there is no one right answer for anyone and that’s why there is so much conflicting advice.

So the question really is what do you do who do you listen to the simple but yet complicated answer is yourself. Following your intuition is one of the best things you can do when trying to conceive.

Listen to this weeks episode of the Finding Fertility podcast here: Conflicting Advice: What should you avoid when trying to conceive?

There are so many times I knew what was best, but I didn’t believe in myself and actually the worst-case scenario and fold it in front of my eyes slowly and I had a really pick myself up and do what I knew was best.

There are so many times I knew what was best for myself, but I didn’t believe in myself, and actually, the worst-case scenario unfolded right in front of my eyes. Maybe that’s why I had a trying to conceive journey of nine years!?! If I would’ve listened to myself a little bit more, I would’ve got to the finish line a little bit quicker.

Believe in yourself and believe in your body - take all advice with a grain of salt & don’t be afraid to speak up to anyone - you know your body best when you're trying to conceive! Ask yourself this question before doing anything “Does this fall in line with what I want & believe in?”
