Stop TRYING To Get Pregnant, Natural Is Better
For many, there is a science and an
art to conception, trying to get pregnant and birth – the creation of a new life. But for many, there is a
shadowy cloud of darkness that descends with fervor, on this otherwise joyous event and process. This article
is for all us!
When things go wrong, that is when you crave most being told the truth, get the
skinny, not beat around the bush! At times the desperation sets in and insurmountable pressures and odds abound
that starts a vicious cycle of self-doubt, stress, infertility, worry over the infertility and increased stress and
round and round we go! You know this roller-coaster ride?
Well, then this is a call to action to GET
OFF THIS RIDE and focus on what MATTERS MORE ….YOU! (not just the end-result or a pregnancy!) There is more to this
than simply meets the eye. You have probably heard it already or before, being told it over and over! But, I will
clarify what I mean and why I say it so bluntly: “STOP TRYING TO GET PREGNANT, NATURAL IS BETTER!” yes, this is how
life is intended to be, including preparing for a new little life being created!
Overcoming infertility the natural way and means of getting pregnant naturally
does not have to be an uphill battle. At first glance, it sounds so logical and wise advice, but actually just
allowing nature to take its course and NOT get too wrapped up in the mechanics of it all, the obstacles in the way
or possible problems (real or imagined), can only add undue and unnecessary pressures… ONES YOU DO NOT
Our own state of mind (and by extension/in addition to, also, our partner’s!), can
greatly or gravely affect the process, results, success and outcome of this glorious life-event. Stress and
relaxation are an intricate, balanced part of this gentle, delicate and fragile process. Psychological factors are
undeniably part of this, however secondary they may be or deemed in the realm and arena of fertility/infertility.
Human reproductive health, cycles and dynamics are complex and layered.
Levels of anxiety, depression are heightened (for both men and women), when it
comes to infertility. Although the relationship between the fertility/infertility, biomedical and psychological
have been one of interest and for the most part overlooked, understudied or ignored, they might not be causal, but
definitely related in more ways than one!
The message and jury are both out…first focus on improving your quality of life,
lifestyle, by increasing your odds, you can significantly improve your potential success rate and take-home-baby
rate by stressing less (NOT MORE!) so, relax, stop trying to get pregnant, natural is better!
It might not only be better, but also healthier and FUN, exercise while trying!
Why beleaguer one of nature’s most precious processes, the creation of new life? Rather, sit back and enjoy the
The often cited renowned expert, Alice D. Domar, Director of the Women's Health
Programs at the Mind/ Body Institute at the Harvard Medical School, states unequivocally that stress affects our
reproductive systems most dearly (if we allow it to!). Most are unaware of the toll this takes and the negative
effect and impact it has on getting pregnant!
We are hormonal and delicate beings, from start to finish, intricately interwoven and
inter-connected. Neuro-chemicals pump through our bodies and effect changes, alter body-chemistry and we still
wonder what one has to do with the other!
WITHOUT QUESTION: STRESSING OVER GETTING PREGNANT is like setting the body, process
and your partner (as well as yourself) up for certain failure and disappointment, stacking the odds against, not
for conceiving that precious little life you both so desperately want.
Get out of the vicious cycle and off the treadmill of worry and start having fun,
enjoying life and allowing nature to take its course – if and when it is meant to be, the body and mind primed
