I got a whole bunch of questions recently from clients about how to prepare for their embryo transfer. So I got on my azz and wrote down everything that I've told people in the past 18 years.
And just for giggles, I Googled ways to prepare for an embryo transfer. The tips I found online were lame, lame, lame. They're obviously not written by clinicians. Rather they're written by your peers i.e. peeps who haven't actually treated clients dealing with infertility and are thus reduced to recycling what everyone else is spouting off online.
Here's a sampling of my suggestions...
- Focus on hot, warming foods like broths, soups, and stews. Nutrients are much more easily digested. Spicy foods are warming so are encouraged.
- Put a hot pack over her lower abdomen to relax the muscles and improve blood circulation. Do this every night at the end of the day when you’re winding down. Leave on for 20-30 minutes.
- Beverages should be room temperature or warmer. No cold or iced beverages until pregnancy test.
These tips apply even if you're not doing an IVF cycle and trying to get pregnant naturally or with inseminations.
If you want access to this file which is still a work in progress cuz my mind works in spurts (kinda like Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park), I'm offering this free to anyone who signs up for my GPS (Get Pregnant and Stay pregnant) Fertility Program.
What's the value of this file? I don't know. How much did you pay for your IVF cycle? $25,000. Cuz that's how much it's worth if my suggestions tip the odd in your favor.
But this special one-time offer is only good for 7 days. So you gotta jump on it fast here zenfertility.com/gps
