Should I Freeze My Eggs? [6:06]
For women, freezing eggs can serve as a type of insurance policy. If you haven’t met your Prince Charming yet freezing your eggs can give you the extra time you need to meet Mr. Right. But, if you want to freeze your eggs, Dr. Cleopatra recommends doing it during your prime reproductive span rather than later in life. Women can also take steps to preserve their fertility naturally by taking care of their bodies and living life like they are already pregnant.
Dr. Cleopatra’s 3-Month Plan to Pregnancy [14:25]
If you have the right tools, Dr. Cleopatra says you should get pregnant within 3-months or less. Psychological and physiological pre-conceptional preparation can make all the difference when trying to conceive.
Women are born with all the eggs they are ever going to have. Eggs start maturing while we are still in our mother’s womb but there is a final process that takes shape three to four months before they are released into our bodies. The goal is to make our eggs the best they can be BEFORE you need them.
Ladies, start being conscious of your fertility. Take your dream of being a mom into your own hands. *This sense of empowerment can attract amazing partners to you.
The way you live can strengthen or weaken chances of having healthy eggs.
Stress Levels, Nutrition and Exercise [24:56]
Stress changes the hormones in our bodies and fertility is affected by every system in our bodies. One critical system is the digestive system and the digestive system is a system profoundly affected by stress.
Food is an integral part of the well-being of your mind, body, and spirit. Nutrition and exercise can be vital to fertility and to having a healthy pregnancy.
Body fat levels can affect your ability to conceive but use caution and don’t overdo workouts!
The Lifecycle of Motherhood [32:00]
