We’re digging into what to do next if you’ve already tried all the diet/lifestyle strategies, but they’re not working.
When you’re trying to solve a problem – it’s tempting to try ALL the things. We naturally assume that doing everything will be better than focusing on one at a time – or get us quicker results.
But doing everything just puts you and your partner in a state of overwhelm and makes it even MORE difficult to identify and solve the real issue.
Then we get frustrated that things aren’t working and throw our hands up in despair, assuming that we’re just not ‘helpable!’
But what have I found, after working with couples in my 1:1 Fab Fertile Coaching Program, to be the number one reason couples aren’t getting pregnant naturally?
They’re not doing the foundational work needed to identify the problem.
(And spoiler alert – the number 2 issue? Because they don’t know the real problem, they’re not getting the actual support they need to fix the problem.)
That’s right. So right now, you might feel like you’re trying EVERYTHING… and that nothing’s working. But you’re missing key steps that could help you right now.
And the number one thing that so many of us get wrong is diet.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why fertility trends may be setting you back (i.e. is eating fries after an IVF transfer good for you (final word on this), plus how to know if pineapples, pomegranates and more are suitable for you)
