Natural Pregnancy

Natural Pregnancy

Everyone has the right to become pregnant, and enjoy nature’s greatest gift. It is the most enjoyable moment of your life, for you and your partner, and to be able to give your baby the best possible start in life, drug free. Natural Pregnancy is about making educated choices to ensure a safe, healthy and natural pregnancy by avoiding chemicals, toxins and unnecessary prenatal testing, and simultaneously maximizing prenatal nutrition, fitness and peace. Excellent nutrition for pregnant women includes not just vital foodstuffs and nourishing herbal infusions, but also pure water and air, abundant light, loving and respectful relationships, with beauty and harmony in daily life, and joyous thoughts.

With all the different ways out there, records show that having a baby naturally is the best way, for mum and baby, with less stress all around, which helps when it comes to feeding, naturally, and with bonding.

The chance of conceiving in an IVF cycle is on average around 20 per cent (but varies due to individual circumstances).

More than one per cent of births in Australia involve the use of assisted reproductive technologies.

Since IVF is still a relatively young science, long-term health risks for women or their children cannot be definitively ruled out. IVF involves surgical procedures (for egg collection, or laparoscopy) where local or general anaesthetics are used. There are slight risks associated with these medical treatments, such as infection and bleeding.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI), is a procedure in which washed sperm is inserted directly into the uterus via a catheter through the cervix. One of the major side effects of having an IUI is the increased risk of having multiples. Because most IUI’s are done in conjunction with the woman taking ovarian stimulating drugs, such as Clomid, the number of eggs that are released during ovulation is not controlled. Problems with ovulation, account for most infertility in women. Signs of problems with ovulation include irregular menstrual periods or no periods.

Clomid can have adverse side effects, such as mood swings, headaches, fatigue, and breast tenderness. In approximately 30% of women taking Clomid, their cervical mucus will become hostile to sperm, thereby preventing conception.

There are certain herbs which can eliminate the need for all those uncomfortable, invasive tests that are so often part of the infertility diagnosis process. Herbs help to strengthen and nourish the organs and systems responsible for the intricate process of successful conception, in addition to promoting a general feeling of well-being, which is crucial before, during and after pregnancy, so you can look after yourself, and baby and enjoy your life together.

Chinese medicine provides a more effective approach, than the approach that has been taken in the West, to address the problem off a natural pregnancy.
