Many women choose to try to have children at age 35 and later. They have finally arrived at the point in their life where they’re ready to have a family – but their fertility is no longer at peak level. You shouldn’t have to panic just because you’re of “advanced maternal age.” Yes, female fertility and age do influence each other, but there are ways to improve your chances of conceiving naturally, without needles, drugs, and costly, painful procedures.
The Choice to Have a Child Later in Life
First birth rates for women in the United States who are 35 to 39 years old have increased dramatically since the 1970s, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That increase is even higher for women in the 40 to 44 age group. We all understand why: More women are choosing to focus on their careers, find the right partner, and create a stable life before they opt to bring a baby into the mix.
The good news is that these statistics are about birth rates – which means there are plenty of women who are conceiving after 35 and delivering healthy babies. If your doctor has scared you with that advanced maternal age term, don’t let it get you down. Conceiving naturally is still possible.
Prepare Your Body for Conception
Maybe you are in the position where you’re just decided to try to conceive. Maybe you’ve been trying for some time without success. Whether you are being proactive or reactive, the good thing is that you realize something more needs to happen than just letting nature take its course.
There are many holistic ways to maximize your fertility in your late 30s and 40s, including:
- Eating a healthy diet
- Exercising regularly
- Not smoking
- Drinking less
- Taking prenatal vitamins
But there’s more. If you are at the point where you’re considering advanced fertility treatments, or you have used them unsuccessfully, there is a natural way to find out how to improve your chances of conceiving. With the right tests and planning, we can:
- Identify gaps in your overall health
- Look for abnormal hormone levels
- Check your thyroid for proper performance
- Pinpoint the vitamins your body is missing
