I spend a lot (a lot) of time talking about cervical mucus and basal body temperature as the fertile signs that can tell you the most about your fertility and ovulation.

 

Did you know there is another sign that can also give you incredible insight into your fertile window? It’s one that I swear by whenever I’m a little confused about what might be happening in my cycle.

 

It’s the position of your cervix, which ...

Accidents can happen. You can do everything right and be so careful but sometimes the condom breaks, or he doesn’t make it out in time. 

 

No method of contraception is 100% fool-proof (you have to remember to take the pill every day for it to be effective!)

 

So let’s talk about your options for emergency contraception if you’re currently using a method of birth control.

Feel like you’re doing ALL OF THE THINGS when it comes to tracking your menstrual cycle and ovulation?


BUT for some reason, there seems to just be that something missing that means things haven’t *quite* clicked into place yet.


When it comes to tracking Basal Body Temperature (BBT), so many women seem to get bogged down in the specifics of daily temperatures and over-analysing the numbers instead of l...

It’s no secret that exercise is good for us.

But here is the thing not a lot of people are out there saying but I am SURE you are probably feeling or thinking.

How the *EFF* do you exercise when trying to conceive or during early pregnancy?

And that is keeping people stuck.

Because so many women aren’t sure how to do it safely, they err on the side of caution and don’t do anything, which isn’t ideal. Then we have...

I speak with women all the time who have said to me that their doctor won’t investigate potential issues with their fertility until they’ve been trying to conceive for 12 months with no success; that they need to have had more than 1 miscarriage to be referred to a specialist, to just stop stressing, give it time and it will happen! Even women who are experiencing unsuccessful IVF cycles are usually just book...

For most of our lives, we have been told that getting pregnant is easy.

It seems ridiculously unfair that we actively avoid getting pregnant for years and years, and then struggle when we are actually ready to conceive.

More and more couples are turning to reproductive technology to assist with pregnancy. But this isn’t always necessary for many couples who use it, nor it is necessarily a gu...

Preparing for a subsequent pregnancy is a whole different ball game compared to first time around. 

There will be days where you wonder why on earth you want to add another little bundle to your family! How will you ever manage another one? Are you ready? Are they ready for a little brother or sister? How can you spread the love between more than one?
