Eat This, Get Pregnant? The Pregnancy Diet Experts Say Works

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, April 04, 2016 | 0 comments

To enhance your fertility, here are three diet tips from women's health and fertility expert Aimee Raupp's book, Yes, You Can Get Pregnant: The Diet That Will Improve Your Fertility Now and Into Your 40's:

Eat Liver. Yes, liver. Contrary to popular belief, liver is not the toxic organ, rather it is the detoxifier. The liver helps remove impurities from one’s system, but it does not hold onto those impurities.

I love liver for helping women get pregnant because it’s an amazing source of folate (the active form of folic acid), all your B vitamins, choline (a substance imperative for optimal fetal development) and loads of antioxidants like inositol (which has been shown to improve egg quality in women undergoing In Vitro Fertilization procedures).

I recommend eating 3 ounces of liver per week. If you can't imagine eating liver, you can take it in pill form as recommended in my book.

Eat Eggs. Eggs are one of the most nutrient dense foods that exist; especially eggs from pastured hens. They are abundant in fertility-enhancing omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin E and choline. As I mentioned when discussing liver, choline is an essential nutrient for optimal fetal development.

As well, it’s imperative for young women trying to conceive to have a diet rich in choline, as during pregnancy, the body's demand for choline is the highest. I recommend women eat between 8 to 12 eggs per week. Be sure these eggs are organic and from pastured hens.

Take Cod Liver Oil. Cod liver oil is an oil from fish; however, it is different from fish oil. Both fish oil and cod liver oil are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids, however cod liver oil also contains vitamins A and D, which are fat soluble vitamins important to fertility and conception.

Most people are suffering from vitamin D deficiencies these days. If this is you, then I recommend cod liver oil over fish oil. Take cod liver oil in capsule or liquid form daily--and be sure to take an amount that delivers 2,000 iu's of vitamin D.

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.
