Lying down after insemination boosts pregnancy chanceLying down for ten minutes after artificial insemination may increase the chances of a successful pregnancy by 50 per cent, research has shown.

A study of 400 couples in the Netherlands found 27 per cent of women who remained lying down following insemination conceived compared with 18 per cent of those who did not.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
