Fertility-Boosting Food Options, According To Science

Jan 19, 2020

Trying to conceive a baby brings about a ton of lifestyle changes, particularly when it comes to your dietary choices. So why not start the day with the right food for this goal? Knowing what foods to eat for breakfast to boost your fertility can make this first meal of the day even more important.

Although the topic is still being researched, current studies suggest a pretty substantial connection between a person's food choices and their fertility. In general, diets that support healthy glycaemic control and are rich in iron and healthy fats tend to promote fertility, according to the Harvard Medical School. More routine diet advice, such as staying away from excess sugar, chemical preservatives and trans fats, is also a part of this idea.

First of all remember the nutrients that circulate through your body have a profound effect on the function of your reproductive organs. However, without guidance, it can be difficult to decide what foods you should be eating to promote...

A Range of Emotions

Dec 14, 2019

Every pregnancy loss is different and there is no right or wrong way to feel about it.  Lets look at how your loss might affect you, your partner and other people in your life.

The loss of a baby in pregnancy can be an unhappy, frightening and lonely experience.  It’s not a major event for everyone, but feelings of shock, grief and loss are common.

"I’ve never cried so much in my whole life. I was walking about with an empty feeling where I should have been holding my baby."

Some people find it very hard to talk about what has happened.

How you feel will depend on your circumstances, your experience of miscarriage and what the pregnancy meant to you.

You might have miscarried in the first few weeks of pregnancy or much later, or you might have had an ectopic or molar pregnancy.  You might have suspected for some time that something was wrong – or the loss may have come as a complete shock.  This pregnancy might have been particularly...

When Is The Right Time To Quit Smoking When You're Trying to Get Pregnant?

Dec 14, 2019

Quitting isn’t easy. But the right support can make the process easier and more successful.  Ideally, if you’re thinking of trying to conceive, you should try to stop smoking at least 6 months before you’re pregnant and follow my five steps to flushing it out of your system.

Quitting is always possible and if you are trying to conceive, you need to. Smoking ages and damages ovaries, eggs, sperm and your uterus. It affects hormone production and triggers autoimmune problems – all leading causes of ectopic pregnancy or early pregnancy loss. What you may not realise is, it is also linked to neonatal death, birth defects and childhood/adolescent health problems.

The good news is, once you quit, your body begins to repair the damage, although there is no research to say your fertility rate will return to normal. Depending on how long and how regularly you smoked for, you may need to give your body a helping hand. Nicotine withdrawal and restoring fertility...

Fertility Breakthrough: new research could stop premature ovarian aging

Sep 26, 2019

Your parents probably lectured you on the importance of contraception. The ever looming ‘threat’ of pregnancy drilled into you as if it were easy.

Ironically, women are told for years if they don’t have children before mid-30’s, they may not be able to. Statistics show a dramatic increase in rates of infertility, more than a decade before egg supply runs out. This means, we need to get to the biological causes of why our eggs and sperm are aging and develop new late life-interventions to slow the process down (12).

Passionate about helping couples have kids, I developed BUMP Fertility; to determine the biomarkers of what causes eggs and sperm to age prematurely and provide 100% natural strategies to stop, reverse and prevent accelerated reproductive decline.

After 20 years of researching, the results are better than what I hoped and every woman who ever wants to have a baby needs to know this information!

Where Are All Your Eggs?

Aug 28, 2019

Ever since you were a teenager your Sex Ed teacher, or probably your parents, drilled into you the importance of contraception The ever looming ‘threat’ of pregnancy drilled into you as if it were easy.

So, you can imagine the frustration when you finally get to an age when a child doesn't seem like such a crazy idea, and to find you're one of the one in 6 couples in Australia affected by unexplained infertility caused by accelerated reproductive aging.

Accelerated aging of the reproductive system and aging eggs is triggered by over 120 hidden modifiable factors that unfortunately are not tested for, and leave couples around the world unable to conceive.

Therefore, a simplistic approach to improving fertility or simply waiting for it to happen naturally may not be the most effective approach to take. Fertility experts agree, reversing aging eggs and restoring sperm health is not something you can do by simply reading a book, eating healthy and taking over the counter...

Why Is My Cervical Mucus Not Right?

Aug 21, 2019

Causes of Vaginal Dryness That Can Impact Your Ability to Get Pregnant

Cervical mucus is key to getting pregnant. Fertile cervical mucus - sometimes referred to as egg white mucus that you produce during your peak fertile time - is needed to help sperm survive and swim from the cervix into the uterus and eventually the fallopian tubes.

Problems with cervical mucus are a sure sign that something is not quite right and you should get assessed straight away. It is a sure sign that one or more of the 120 hidden modifiable fertility factors are interfering with you getting pregnant.  If you can relate to this, you should get assessed by BUMP NOW!

Mild cases may increase the time it takes to get pregnant, but won’t necessarily cause infertility and it's good to get onto these straight away. More serious cervical mucus problems like dryness or blood stained secretions require hormonal support and advanced testing.This is why we offer this as part of our premium support package....

Hormones After IVF

Feb 25, 2019

Hormone happiness is so important when you are trying to conceive either naturally or with IVF. The challenge is, hormones play a role in emotional turmoil after each IVF cycle and can leave you feeling exhausted and drained.  You can listen to my podcast here ...

 Beyond bruising and swelling, the side effect that most women complain about is mood swings. Many women feel fine until day 5 of their injection schedule, but their mood and energy shifted on day 6. This is when anxiety can set in leaving you tearful and nervous about everything. Even trying to figure out what to wear can leave you worrying for hours.

It's not really a feeling of unhappiness for most women but the mood swings can be horrific, going from laughing to crying in seconds.

To cope, it's helpful to try mindfulness and nutrients for mood regulation like vitamin B6.  It helps regulate the nervous system and can prevent or reduce feelings of anxiety, fear, nervousness, restlessness and irritability....

How To Recover After IVF

Feb 23, 2019

Keeping a sense of hope and believing that better things are coming is so important when you are trying to conceive either naturally or with IVF.

We know this, and we know you know this, but sometimes it's easier said than done when the journey has been so hard. That's why, when we open conversations about how to recover physically after IVF, be more fertile if you want to start the process again, and how to avoid the top mistakes when trying to conceive, we also need to consider that most importantly, it's also your time to heal.

How to start the healing process

After several cycles of IVF, your body has absorbed many little pills and hundreds of shots and although these play a vital role in the success of IVF, they may also contain heavy metals and other pollutants linked to health problems. What's important to remember is most women commence IVF with an existing bioaccumulated toxic burden of heavy metals like cadmium, lead and mercury (to name just a few) from past birth...
