Seems simple enough, right?
Birds, bees. Sperm, egg. Everything comes together and nine months later – BOOM.
Baby in the baby carriage.
For many couples, babies just happen.
Others meet with disappointment and frustration.
Did you know that what you eat months before you conceive will effect your baby's health and gene expression? That puts a whole new spin on the prenatal diet, eh?
Did you know that waiting to having babies may greatly decrease your likelihood to conceive – even with the wonders of modern medicine?
Whether you're just starting to think about kids, or have been trying to conceive for awhile with no luck, I want to help to make it easier.
At Holistic Squid, I cover topics from what to eat to optimize fertility to natural treatment for conditions like PCOS, recurrent miscarriages, and poor sperm quality.
In my posts, I bring over eight years of clinical experience to my insatiable desires to learning and help couples to have the family they envision. Think of me as your new (and hopefully greatly improved) sex ed teacher.
I aim to take the confusion out of baby making.
Here are some posts to get you started:
