A homoeopathic paediatrician, a counselling expert and a freelance writer are a few words to describe my profession. My sole aim is to put forth practical piece of information that guides every one right in the direction, blending the medicos to a layman with a simple gesture to make the medical things a little less convoluted and comprehendible.


Within the regular practice there has been a constant rise in couples consulting experts to conceive. It is quite unlike the old times when physicians were brainstormed only after being pregnant. With drastic changes in the lifestyles and patterns, things have too changed in all spheres including the sexual ones. With demanding jobs and hectic schedules couples don’t find enough time to spend together and may be not making love on the right biological time and consider serious issues. Often the frequency is so less that the fertile period passes by in the week days and till the weekend when it happens things are uprooted preparing for the next month. The following are a few do’s and don’ts for couples who want to be blessed with a healthy baby in their lives:-


  • Every couple who wants to conceive should indulge in within the fertile period i.e. from the 10th to the 26th day. Simply the first day is the day menses begin and 10 days later a couple can try for a baby. Sex should be practiced on regular basis during this phase to skip any chances.
  • Both the partners should take a healthy eating pattern ignoring no nutrient. Especially for male’s foods rich in vitamin B – 12, zinc and selenium prove efficacious and for females multivitamin with folic acid rich food would form a perfect diet.
  • For an obese female to shed off the extra weight would be a better option but with no cutting on the food and nourishment. Adopting a healthy lifestyle is a must to prepare.
  • Always choose for organic and natural food versions over the preserved and prepared ones. This will help fetch the maximum of nutrients in their innate non – artificial form.
  • Anti oxidants rich colourful fruits and vegetables raise on the chances. They should form an integral segment of the diet. More coloured is the article more is its benefits.
  • Relaxation techniques should be adopted to lay off the related stress. Often females tend to think over again and again with undue anxiety which may hamper the process. Anxiety levels on both sides should be minimised as within the relaxed aura things turn positive.
  • Breathing exercises and little bit of yoga all tend to boost up healthy vibes and stimulate feel good factors. A calm mind is more likely to function better as compared to a tensed one. All those who seek to conceive should begin with these soothing techniques and should also continue the exercises under expert guidance.


  • Foods which enact as a natural contraceptive should be avoided. These include holy basil (Tulsi), cinnamon, ginger, saffron, aloes, St. John’s wort should be given up completely
  • Fishes rich on the fat content like tuna, salmon etc should be restricted
  • Preserved versions is a complete no as the ingredients may interfere with the natural process and lead to trouble or may form an unnecessary hurdle
  • Excessive dieting for both partners; an unbalanced food intake should not be an option. This brings in agitation and may leave the body deprived of the required. 

Bearing a child is the desire of all but one need to prepare right and let the process function naturally. Some unfortunate may need medical help with unhealthy grounds but those fortunate should never give up the blessing for their unhealthy deeds. Adopt the above to gift your child with health and stress free beginning.
