Pregnancy is a time of increased self-awareness - and caring for your self is the first step in caring for your baby. Pregnancy health - both emotional and physical - brings increased fertility for the mother, the healthy development and growth of the baby, and a happier pregnancy for both mother and child.

Planning for a healthy pregnancy, of course, begins with common sense: avoid nicotine, alcohol, and other drugs. A balanced and healthy diet is also important, as is regular, moderate exercise and reduced levels of stress.

If you are not eating organic, now might be a good time to switch to organic foods - especially when it comes to meat and dairy products. You are what you eat - and cows, poultry and fish are what they eat, too - so by implication, organic and "free-range" foods will not have the added hormones and additives.

Herbs for Fertility

Many women are also turning to herbs for fertility and pregnancy support. Below you will find a list of herbs to use - or avoid - to enhance fertility and increase pregnancy health.

Chaste Tree Berry (Vitex)

Chasteberry has the effect of stimulating and normalizing pituitary gland functions, especially its progesterone function. The greatest use of Vitex Agnus Castus - or Chasteberry - lies in normalizing the activity of female sex hormones and it is thus indicated for dysmenorrhoea, premenstrual stress and other disorders related to hormone function. It is especially beneficial during menopausal changes. In a similar way it may be used to aid the body to regain a natural balance after the use of the birth control pill. Because it can increase progesterone and extend the luteal phase, some women begin taking it when they ovulate, though regular daily use is indicated in the promotion of fertility.

Vitex agnus castus (chasteberry, vitex) is a traditional herb that has been used for centuries for hormonal imbalances in women. More recently, numerous clinical research studies have provided compelling evidence for vitex as a treatment for infertility, female hormonal imbalance, dysmenorrhoea, premenstrual stress, ovulatory irregularity, annovulation, amenorrhea, and other disorders related to female hormone function..

In research studies, vitex may relieve symptoms caused by hormonal imbalances and vitex may be helpful for women who do not have regular or normal menstrual cycles. Because vitex impacts key hormones that regulate and balance the menstrual cycle, vitex can help balance the levels and ratios of hormones required for normal menstrual function, ovulation, and fertility. As vitex is safe, it may be used by women seeking to become pregnant to increase chances of conception. More specifically, it can be used by women with irregular ovulatory function and by women with shorter luteal phases. Vitex may also be used after discontinuing use of birth control pills to restore normal ovulation.

As vitex has the effect of stimulating and normalizing pituitary gland functions, especially its progesterone function, vitex may be particularly useful in cases of low levels of progesterone (corpus luteum insufficiency) during the luteal phase (the period between ovulation and the end of the menstrual cycle). As the studies below indicate, vitex may be very effective in promoting normal hormal function, regular and fequent ovulation, and support fertility and conception.

Dong Quai

Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis root) is the noted Chinese herb that is used as a blood tonic. It contains micronutrients known for their blood building properties (iron, vitamin B12, and vitamin E). Dong Quai balances estrogen in the body, and is traditionally used in China to regulate the menstrual cycle. Dong Quai is also a blood thinner, and for this reason it should not be taken during menstruation. It may be helpful in improving the chances of implantation for women who have auto-immune problems, but should not be taken if you are already taking "baby" aspirin to reduce blood clotting.

False Unicorn Root

Used for amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, hormonal imbalance (balancing effect), infertility, morning sickness, ovarian cysts, spermatorrhea, threatened miscarraige, uterine prolapse. It is a tonic for the reproductive organs, expecially beneficial as an aid to getting pregnant and staying pregnant, has a normalizing effect upon the ovaries. Used in infertility caused by dysfunction in follicular formation in the ovary. Eases ovarian pain and vaginal dryness. Follow directions: Taking too much may cause hot flashes, kidney and stomach irritation, blurred vision or vomiting.

Wild Yam

Wild Yam can increase progesterone production. This can increase progesterone production for those with short luteal phases but should only be taken after ovulation. If taken before it can actually prevent ovulation.

FertilAid and Fertility Blend

If you are considering using a herbal supplement, FertilAid and Fertility Blend contain a number of key fertility herbs, as well as central vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. FertilAid is particularly rich in vitamins and minerals, and both blends containt vitex agnus castus or chasteberry.

Herbs to Avoid During Pregnancy

Various sources have recommended avoiding the following herbs during pregnancy. These herbs should also be avoided after ovulation, in case you may be pregnant.

Barberry Bloodroot, Calamus Cascara, Sagrada Fennel Flaxseed,
Goldenseal Juniper, Lavender Licorice Root, Male Fem Mayapple,
Mistletoe Passion Flower, Pennyroyal (a strong uterine stimulant!!!),Periwinkle Poke Root, Rhubarb, Sage, St. John's Wort,
Tansy Thyme, Wild Cherry Wormwood, Yarrow

My name is Bose and I base in Spain...“My life is
back!!! After 14 years of Broken marriage, my
husband left me and our two twins . I felt like my
life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i
was emotionally down for a very long time.
Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Ronaldo which i
met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing
through the internet, I was searching for a good
spell caster that can solve my problems. I came
across alot of testimonies about this particular
spell caster. Some people testified that he
brought their Ex lover back, some testified that
he restores womb,cure cancer,and other
sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to
stop divorce and so on. i also come across one
particular testimony,it was about a woman called
Sonia,she testified about how Dr Ronaldo brought
back her Ex lover in less than 7 days and reverse
the effect of their little boys cancer, and at the
end of her testimony she dropped Dr. Ronaldo's e-
mail address. After reading all these,I decided to
give Dr Ronaldo
a try. I contacted him via email and explained my
problem to him. In just 3 days, my husband came
back to me. We solved our issues, and we are
even happier than before. Dr Ronaldo is really a
gifted man and i will not stop publishing him
because he is a wonderful man... If you have a
problem and you are looking for a real and
genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for
you. Try Dr Ronaldo anytime, he might be the
answer to your problems. Here's his contact:
{Ronaldospelltemple@gmail.com}.or by
phone :+2348110038610 Thank you Dr Ronaldo

My dear reader, you have to read this.
Dr Goodluck doesn’t ask for testimonies and he doesn’t charge. He is genuine and people get to meet him by luck. But right now am your luck if you could meet him. Every other testimonies you read here are scams...... Dr goodluck lives in Nigeria and I happened to meet him by chance after a friend told me about him. I followed these internet testimonies and was hugely scammed to the extent that I wanted to kill myself. Dr Goodluck turned my situation around by bringing back my ex and made me regain double of what I lost over to these scams. He made my ex come crawling to have him back. All I spent was $250 and at last gained back all my lost money and even double of it. His email address is : drextrapowerghost@gmail.com but please don’t make him know that I published him on net. He is just wonderful and I wish whoever that finds him good luck. Don’t forget his email address is drextrapowerghost@gmail.com
Yours truly

My name is Tricia Alex, am from USA. i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man PROPHET ALUTA brought my husband back to me, i had 2 lovely kids for my husband, about 3 years ago i and my husband has been into one qaurrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be stronge just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mINE was a small case and that i shouldnt worry about it at all so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man phone number and his email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i did them all, he told me to wait for just two days and that my husband will come crawlling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully did what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great suprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy.thats why i want to say a big thank you to PROPHET ALUTA. This great man made me to understand that theres no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him at:PROPHETALUTASOLUTIONTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM
