My guest today is Jocey Rodriguez, my right hand person.  She has been on show multiple times and if you’re part of our private Facebook group, you certainly have benefited from her expertise.  

A couple of weeks ago, Jocey and I were discussing cases, and we got on the topic of fertility urban legends that people believe to be true and how we wish these urban legends didn’t spread like wildfire.  

And you know what I’m talking about.  “Eat pineapple and drink pomegranate juice.” “Use Robitussin to thin the cervical mucus.”

Listen we totally get it, when nothing is happening the way you envisioned, you want answers and you want to know what you can do today to fix it all.

I asked Jocey to be on the show today because 1) It gets lonely sometimes flying solo and 2) I wanted a little extra help to debunk some of the popular fertility legends that are out there.

These urban legends, while none of them are harmful, and in fact they might help some people, they are not the best way to approach your fertility.  

OK, so we’re going to:

  • Debunk the top 6 urban legends when it comes to TTC
  • The alternatives and practical actions you can take instead.

If you’re not pregnant right now I still want you to listen to this episode because here is the thing, setting a solid foundation for a healthy pregnancy and also post-partum,  directly impacts your abilities to get pregnant in the future.

We have a lot of mamas in the private group that are trying for a second or third child.  And while they didn’t have any problems the first time, this time around seems harder. Well,  that’s because the kidney energy is a bit more depleted. So while we can’t replenish the kidney energy, we can preserve it better.  And how you take care of yourself during pregnancy and post- partum can affect how well you preserve that energy.

I will go over in detail:

  • Considerations for diet, exercise and self-care throughout all three trimesters of pregnancy.
  • How to induce labor naturally.
  • The one mistake most women make post-partum and the most important thing you need to do to take care of yourself.

Remember, we inherit a limited amount of Kidney energy from our parents.  So, the healthier you are, the more you have to pass down to your baby and future generations.

I’m going to talk about something I love dearly,  and that is acupuncture.

I talked about how specifically you should go about looking for an acupuncturist before, but there are still lots of misconceptions surround acupuncture itself.  

So in this episode, I want to go into detail and:

  • clear up some misconceptions
  • talk about about what a typical acupuncture treatment should look like from beginning to end
  • what you can expect to feel during the treatment and after the treatment.  

I hope to ease your fears about acupuncture because it is such a powerful tool to help you get pregnant.  I don’t want you to stop treatment or have your fears get in the way because of misconceptions, or because someone didn’t take the time to talk to you about what to expect.
