Throughout my years of supporting my clients the question “Am I too old to get pregnant?” has come up regularly.
We cannot ignore the fact that if you had to pin fertility on just one factor the most important would be age.
Age is the most important factor – but it’s not the only one
The older you are, for both males and females, the more likely you and your partner are to have problems conceiving, carrying a pregnancy and giving birth to a healthy baby – but even with all of this, there is hope.
If you find yourself over the age of 35 you cannot change your age, however you can improve a number of other factors which will improve your chances of conceiving.
Lifestyle choices become increasingly important.
- you can take a proactive approach to have a healthy BMI,
- a constant body weight, taking regular gentle exercise,
- understanding your menstrual cycle and
- identifying your fertile window.
Make yourself and in particular your health and wellbeing a priority through optimising general lifestyle habits such as getting good sleep, avoiding toxins, not smoking, limiting caffeine and alcohol and having some time in your day to relax and during your week to be in nature.
I know from working with my clients for years, that when you start trying to conceive life can seem unfair, out of control and quickly an enormous amount of anxiety can build up.
There are more resources now than ever to try and inform you about lifestyle choices and diets, but sometimes this can leave you even more confused and bewildered.
This is where my clients find my support so valuable as I am your constant companion on your fertility journey.
My experience will provide you with deep listening. By this I mean I will let you express your private frustrations in a non-judgemental space.
After a comprehensive consultation we put together a positive strategy to move forward.
You will be able to hope again.
