Women are not the only ones who need to get their body ready for conception. Men face their own challenges in both becoming fathers and in maintaining their health throughout the early years of parenthood, especially if they are older at the time of conception.
Pregnancy is not a disease, but it is a time of increased physiological stress requiring optimal wellness. As older moms we run the risk of accumulated health problems.
If you have been trying to get pregnant and haven’t been able to, it’s time to have a pelvic ultrasound. Information gained during a pelvic ultrasound can tell you what the problem may be.
The trauma may have included a high risk and/or complicated pregnancy, loss of a pregnancy, or complications during/after delivery. If any part of your once-imagined story of simply getting pregnant, having a blissful pregnancy, and then delivering a healthy baby went vastly different, then you may have experienced trauma.
I know that Infertility presents us with many challenges – emotionally, physically, mentally – and too many women go through this journey in the dark. That’s why I’ve teamed up with Embie, the world’s first fertility treatment tracking app made exclusively for women going through IVF, IUI and egg freezing cycles.
