We’ll run through some alternative methods to getting pregnant such as artificial insemination or in-vitro fertilization, but there are even more health tactics to address to get pregnant that do not necessarily require a doctor’s visit, that we are happy to round up from our friend, the Detox Diva.

Jacqueline also offers her expertise on pre and post pregnancy, and today I’d like to round up a few of her less obvious health fixes to infertility as well as some causes of infertility you may not be aware of…


Pregnant: Health Fixes


*Find out why Zinc is a Fertility Superstar. Zinc functions in both males and females in the pregnancy baby conception process, and has a direct effect on sperm. It is also an important mineral for weight loss, eye health and treatment for loss of appetite to name a few.
*Did you know that you can Balance Your Hormones by The Moon? The concept of Lunaception focuses on our natural, circadian rhythms being thrown off by light pollution and modern lifestyle, which throw our hormones out of balance.
*Learn why becoming Wheat Free is good for Fertility. There are many ways wheat can effect your body for pregnancy that are very subtle, as well as taking too much energy away from say your pregnant reproductive health system. Giving up wheat also goes beyond helping with infertility.
*Find out about Estrogen Dominance and how it affects women across the board, both including and regardless of pregnancy issues. It is a contributing factor to infertility.

If you are having trouble getting pregnant with baby, there are alternative methods to discuss with your doctor. 


Pregnancy: Having a Baby

Having a baby is the dream of many couples. But, getting pregnant doesn’t always come so easily. Who’s to blame? We won’t get into that. Either partner, or both partners, may have health issues that produce a roadblock for a successful conception. The stress of trying to conceive can make things worse. It’s best to not point fingers at each other, and take a look at the health methods below for baby conception.
  1. Artificial Insemination This technique is used for women who want a child and either do not have a male partner or whose male partner cannot supply the sperm. Women in these situations have the opportunity to choose from a bank or, in some cases, a donor who has agreed to provide it. When the woman is ovulating, the sperm is inserted into the uterus or the cervix, hopefully to bring the egg and the donated sperm together for fertilization.
  2. In-Vitro Fertilization – This fertility technique has been around for a long time, with a great deal of improvement throughout the years. Simply put, this process is used to unite the egg and sperm outside of the body. Sometimes, the issue is with the system of reproduction and not the egg or sperm itself. The eggs are removed and placed in a solution with the sperm. The eggs are fertilized by the sperm and then inserted into the women’s uterus for possible, and hopefully, completion by implantation into the uterine wall.


  • Surrogate Birth – Women who can’t conceive or carry a pregnancy to term, may consider contacting a surrogacy network. In this case, a woman will act as a surrogate and contract with the couple to carry their child. This method involves artificial insemination with the partner’s sperm. This method of childbirth can be tricky from a legal standpoint. There have been instances of court battles over the rights of the pregnant surrogate versus the contracting family.  This is a method that should always involve your attorney and a reputable surrogate agency right from the beginning of discussions.
  • Donor Eggs – Yes, there is a process of obtaining eggs from another woman, just like men donate to a bank. If the issue is with the eggs, then using another egg paired with your partner may be a viable option for you and your partner. In-vitro fertilization techniques are used to implant the fertilized egg into the uterus to become pregnant.
  • Intrafallopian Transfer – This technique involves extracting an egg and the sperm and reintroducing them into the fallopian tube at various stages to encourage fertilization and implantation to occur naturally. First, they are injected into the fallopian tube and second, the two are allowed to fertilize outside the body and injected into the fallopian tube as soon as the zygote stage is reached.


Consult your doctor as soon as you realize that you are getting frustrated about having a baby. Your doctor will help alleviate your concerns and will be able to help you choose the right method to proceed with starting your family. 


If the traditional method is not working for you and your partner, rest assured there are alternative methods to conceive a child and become pregnant.
