Focus on Your Mental Health Before You Get Pregnant

If you think you only need to take care of yourself from the neck down to get ready for Baby, think again. The brain is the real “fertility boss” because it regulates the hormones that affect the reproductive organs. Struggling with stress or depression while trying to conceive can throw up roadblocks in the reproductive pathway. If you’re having trouble handling something in your life, talk to a mental health professional to find the best path of relief for your situation.
