Nurture yourself. When you nurture yourself, you nurture your eggs and improve your fertility. Your eggs are your reproductive potential and they are within you right now, waiting for the right opportunity to arise. Life is about an exchange of energy. Nature has programmed us to want to reproduce, we have to supply the necessary building blocks as well as create the proper environment for our bodies to do that.

“Mind Body Baby, How to eat, think and exercise to give yourself the best chance at conceiving”, author Ann Bracken from Dublin, Ireland. She is a fertility counselor and Mindfulness teacher with years of experience helping couples with their fertility. This newly published book can definitely help you improve your chances of getting pregnant.
Nutrition: One of the best (and tastiest) ways to assist this biological imperative is to eat in such a way as to create this environment to improve your fertility. We tend to think of food as being like the petrol we put into our cars to make them go, however, food is so much more than that. The right quality foods actually rebuild, rejuvinate and change your body/car on a cellular level into a fertile Ferrari. If you want to build a human being you need ingredients. Improper foods and eating can turn your body/car into a clunker where the body rusts, the engine starts to stall, your wipers break and the radio doesn’t work. Good nutrition is essential for optimal living at every stage of life: for an egg, sperm, foetus, newborn, toddler, child, teenager, adult and the elderly.
“Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food” -Hippocrates
Sleep: Getting adequate and regular sleep is essential to optimise your body’s ability to repair and rejuvenate itself and it can get your body into a regular rhythm and regulate your hormones. A good night’s sleep can be the difference between coping and chaos. Try going to bed at the same time every night (before midnight) and waking up at the same time in the morning. Naturally it can improve your fertility.
Stress Reduction: Watch funny movies that make you laugh, listen to uplifting music, get back to nature by spending some time outside, get some gentle exercise such as yoga or even walking, or acknowledge and release your anger and frustration in a way that doesn’t harm anyone or anything (scream when you’re alone or write it down), or simply have that cry. These are all stress reducing activities which are greatly restorative not only for your body and to improve your fertility, but for your soul and spirit as well.
Connect: It is important to stay connected to other people, and with your partner in particular. Experiencing fertility problems can often lead to shutting down and feelings of isolation. There can be a great level of comfort and peace when you are connected with people sharing the same experiences. Volunteering to help people who are suffering for other reasons than fertility can be a great way to connect with other souls and it leaves you feeling good that you’ve helped someone else in need. Feeling needed and appreciated is very restorative.
