Get your mind and body ready for pregnancy.
The optimum time to prepare for pregnancy is ideally at least 90 days, as it takes 90 days for men to develop healthy new sperm, and women to develop healthy new follicles. Making some life style changes is not only going to improve your overall health to optimise your chances of conceiving, but it can also help to reduce your chances of miscarriage, help to support and improve your changes of a positive outcome when undergoing your fertility treatment, and crucially for the long term health of your developing baby.
Whether you’re trying naturally or preparing for your fertility treatment, I’ll help you and your partner to get in the best place possible to improve your chances of a positive outcome, by implementing some very achievable lifestyle changes. And please don’t worry if you’re starting your fertility treatment sooner than the optimum 90 days, there’s still lots you can do to get prepared,
Please contact me for more information.
This can be done by phone, Zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp.
This service is to give you continued feedback on how you’re getting on at home with your nutrition, cycle, sleep, hydration, Basal Body Temperature charts (BBT), reflexology techniques, or anything else that has come up that you’d like to discuss to help you continue with your fertility journey at home as much as possible.
Reflexology is such a relaxing, healing treatment, different areas on the feet relate to different parts on your body, if your feet are in harmony so will everything else💜
“Reflexology will leave you feeling deeply relaxed and rejuvenated, helping to aid healing by restoring balance to your mind and body.”
This is juiced lemon (including the skin) with a bit of apple 🍋.
Once metabolised in the body lemon is very alkalising, and the more alkaline your body is the healthier it is😃. It also helps with the detoxification process by supporting your lovely liver and kidneys, and is a great source of vitamin C.
Start your day on waking with a glass of ‘just’ filtered water at room temp (a pint if you can manage it), 30 mins before breakfast, then you can start to introduce freshly squeezed lemon juice to your subsequent glasses of water. Ideally try to have a glass of water (or lemon water) 30 mins before each meal, either at room temp or if you prefer bringing up to just before boiling point and let it cool a little. Trying to slowly buildup to drinking 2 litres of water a day (that’s approx 4 pints or 8 glasses)💧🍋.
This is such a calming and grounding yoga pose, great to use in times of stress or anxiety, and can help with reducing swelling in the legs (oedema). Lie flat on your back with your legs up the wall, inching your bum as close to the bottom of the wall as possible, can use a cushion to lift your hips aiming to get your legs as flat against the wall as you can. Close your eyes, stretch your arms out like a cross and take slow calming breaths😌 xxx

Add the juice of 1/2 a lemon to a glass of ‘clean’ boiled water cooled down a little,. Great for detoxing the liver to help keep your hormones in check, and kickstart your metabolism. Add some raw honey or infuse with raw ginger, to benefit from their anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties😉.
Ideally we need around 8-9 hours sleep a night to function effectively.
If you're not getting a proper nights sleep due to stress from work or home, it will naturally start to have an impact on your health and mental state.
⭐️️Try to get into a good bedtime routine, aiming to go to bed and wake at the same time everyday.
⭐️️Turn off all electronic equipment a couple of hours before going to bed.
⭐️️Don't eat too late, give your body time to digest your food before going to bed, and ensure you're well hydrated.
⭐️️Have a warm relaxing bath, with 2 to 3 handfuls of Epsom salts to help relax your muscles ready for sleeping.
⭐️️Try to cut out or reduce all stimulants like alcohol and caffeine, opting for a caffeine free herbal tea instead before bed.
⭐️️Read a book for an hour or so in bed, this can help you to drift off naturally.
⭐️️Make your bedroom and bed inviting, keep the temperature cool rather than too hot. Sleep naked!
⭐️Try putting a couple of drops of lavender essential oil on your pillow to aid restful sleep.
Taking time out to gather your thoughts doing something you find stress free and relaxing, helps to recharge your batteries ready to face the rest of your day🙂.
Walking is not only good for your health, it can help to free your mind from all your worries, all part of the healing process.
