Arora Valley answered:
Now that you are ready to take on parenting, try to eat more healthily at least three months before you conceive. One particular supplement is important while trying to make a baby and that is Folic Acid. According to Health Promotion Board the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) of Folic acid for pregnant woman is 600 micrograms a day. Start taking the supplement at least one month before you get pregnant, and continue taking them until at least the end of the 12th week of pregnancy. This vitamin reduces the risk of having a baby born with a spinal cord problem such as spina bifida and reduces the risk of a premature labour. Keep up your folate status by eating foods such as spinach, sprouts, broccoli, green beans, and potatoes. Some bread and breakfast cereals are also fortified with folic acid. Try to cut down on flavourings and additives, especially aspartame and monosodium glutamate. If you're a big coffee or alcohol drinker, cut back.Heavy coffee drinking and alcohol consumption may cause great harm to a developing fetus if you do conceive. Watch your weight gain and aim to lose weight before becoming pregnant if you are obese. Other things you should avoid: 1) Too much vitamin A - don't eat liver or liver products, or take vitamin A supplements. 2) Listeriosis - don't eat undercooked meat or eggs, soft cheese, pâté, shellfish, raw fish, or unpasteurised milk. 3) Fish which may contain a lot of mercury - shark, marlin, swordfish, or excess tuna.

Sharon answered:
Folic acid is a basic. But most importantly, you need to get your body ready for pregnancy by eating well. I started getting ready for pregnancy about a year before I actually got pregnant. I cut down on soda drinks, caffeine and other unhealthy foods. This also helped me to get into the mind frame of pregnancy, which is vital for anyone trying to conceive. Our mind is actually very powerful, and it helps to constantly visualize yourself getting pregnant.

HelloKitty Mum answered:
Royal Jelly is one of the choices for increasing fertility. Diet plays a part in keeping your body healthy and ready for pregnancy too. Fuel up on leafy greens, whole grains, eggs, legumes, meat, fish (or fish oil supplements) and lots and lots of water. Steer clear of acidic foods like coffee, alcohol, meat and processed foods.

Here are the seven best natural supplements: Co-enzyme Q10 This famous antioxidant has been shown to improve egg quality, predominantly in older women, helping them to become more fertile. Antioxidants are beneficial in neutralizing free radicals, which may destroy the integrity of the egg or the sperm. In this way, Co-enzyme Q10 also helps men with certain types of infertility. And the great benefit is that it will improve your hair and skin as well as your overall health. Astragalus Astralagus is a traditional Chinese medicinal herb that is an adaptogen, meaning that it protects the body against various disorders. Besides supporting the healthy immune function, astragalus also improves sperm count, and enhances the chances of pregnancy. Pumpkin Seeds Pumpkin seeds help mostly men with fertility problems. They are a good source of zinc and fatty acids. They should be eaten even during pregnancy, because they contain important nutrients for baby’s prenatal development. They have to be consumed raw. Royal Jelly Rich in Vitamins D and E, royal jelly balances hormones and improves egg health. The bee queen eats it to increase her fertility and so should you, to help nourish a healthy pregnancy. Avoid it if you’re allergic to honey! Liquid Chlorophyll Besides being an excellent detoxifier and a well-known body cleanser, liquid chlorophyll regulates menstruation. Siberian Ginseng A great immune system booster, Siberian Ginseng helps men to increase semen production and helps fertility disorders in both men and women. It is also a mild sexual stimulant. It improves the health of the uterus cells, which may increase your chances of conceiving. Saw Palmetto Saw Palmetto increases women’s fertile age and helps men have stronger hormones. It also fights against prostate cancer and reduces hair loss. When you have decided what to take to help you get pregnant, don’t forget that it is always better to first consult a specialist. Supplements don’t have overnight effects, but taking them long enough could increase your pregnancy chances. If you don’t get pregnant in one year of natural treatment, you should consider alternative remedies with your healthcare provider.
