Many women are waiting to have children later in life. Waiting can bring a lot of advantages — you’ll likely be more stable in your career, more financially secure, and maybe even more secure in your relationship with your partner.
Yet, waiting can also bring challenges. Women’s egg quality decreases with age — even as early as your mid-thirties. Additional risks also arise in pregnancies among older conceiving women, including miscarriage or infants with developmental delays.
What many women don’t realize is that stress and anxiety can be a leading culprit in a woman’s difficulty getting pregnant. There’s a great deal you can do to prepare your body for optimal fertility. It’s best to begin preconception care with a Naturopathic doctor 3-6 months before you want to get pregnant or start fertility treatment such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). However, if you’re actively trying to conceive but have struggled to get pregnant, there’s still much you can do to improve your fertility naturally.
