Tips to conceive a baby boy or a girl

If you wish to conceive and have a gender preference for your future baby, you will be glad to know that advice and tips exist that could have an impact on having a boy or a girl.


First of all; timing is crucial. According to research, the girl chromosome – X, has a tendency of travelling slower than the boy chromosome – Y. For this reason, if you want to conceive either a boy or a girl, this first step is to check our ovulation calculator link. Male spermatozoa are faster. To enhance your chances of conceiving a boy – have sex as close as possible to your ovulation day. On the other hand, if you wish to have a baby girl, it is advised to make love three days before you ovulate and then wait patiently until the end of your ovulation period. Male spermatozoa will tend to tire faster. They will be less resilient and may die off, leaving more female spermatozoa to fertilise the egg when released, leading to higher chances of having a girl.

Leafy greans

Don’t underestimate the effect of leafy green vegetables. Increasing the quantities of spinach, broccoli and other green vegetables to your diet can have a favorable impact on your pregnancy.

Green vegetables have a high level of foliates. A vitamin that can improve your ovulation and can reduce chances of having a miscarriage. Men, please don’t think you can pass up on this diet, joining your partner will improve your spermatozoa health which is vital to fertilization. Studies have shown that men eating dark green vegetables on a daily basis have 20% less abnormal spermatozoa than other men.

Baby born after womb transplantation

In September, a 36-year-old Swedish woman became the first ever to give birth from a transplanted womb. A new paper published in The Lancet provides a “proof of concept” report on the case.

“Absolute uterine factor infertility” is the only type of female infertility still considered to be untreatable. This condition is often a consequence of Rokitansky syndrome, which is when a woman is born without a womb. Adoption and surrogacy have so far been the only options for women with absolute uterine factor infertility to acquire motherhood.

However, the news of the first baby to be born from a woman with Rokitansky syndrome who received a womb transplant brings hope to women with forms of absolute uterine factor infertility.

The researchers who performed the transplant – from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden – have been investigating the viability of womb transplantation for over 10 years. Before attempting the procedure in humans, the researchers conducted trials in rodents and non-human primates.

In 2013, the researchers initiated transplants in nine women with absolute uterine factor infertility who had received wombs from live donors. The Swedish woman who recently gave birth was one of these women.

Although two of the women in the trial had to have hysterectomies during the initial months – because of severe infections and thrombosis – the team reported success in the other seven women.

These women began menstruating during the first 2-3 months after transplant. Although occasional episodes of “mild rejection” were detected in some of the women, the researchers were able to overcome this by prescribing a short course of immunosuppression therapy.

Outside of this trial, only two other womb transplants had been attempted. The first of these required the womb to be removed after 3 months, due to progressive uterine necrosis.

The second attempt involved a womb from a deceased donor being transplanted into a woman with Rokitansky syndrome. Although this woman became pregnant twice via embryo transfer, both pregnancies resulted in miscarriage before week 6.

Eggs were fertilized using IVF prior to mother receiving womb transplant

The Swedish woman who gave birth received her womb from a 61-year-old family friend. As the recipient had intact ovaries, she was able to produce eggs, which were then fertilized using IVF prior to the transplant.

A total of 11 embryos were produced and frozen using this method. One year after the womb transplant, one of these embryos was transferred to the transplanted womb.

Prof. Mats Brännström, who led the team of researchers, says that fetal growth was normal through the first 31 weeks of pregnancy. “We found only one episode of mild rejection during the pregnancy that was successfully treated with corticosteroids,” he says, “and the woman was working full time until the day before delivery.”

As a consequence of preeclampsia, the woman was admitted to hospital at 31 weeks and her baby was delivered by cesarean section 16 hours later.

Although an abnormal fetal heart rate had been detected when the woman was admitted to the hospital, in the days after being born, the baby scored as being in perfect health according to the Apgar rating scale for determining the health of newborns.

The infant was discharged from the neonatal unit after 10 days, and the researchers say that both mom and baby are continuing to do well.

According to Prof. Brännström:

“Our success is based on more than 10 years of intensive animal research and surgical training by our team and opens up the possibility of treating many young females worldwide that suffer from uterine infertility. What is more, we have demonstrated the feasibility of live-donor uterus transplantation, even from a postmenopausal donor.”

The financial crisis hit parenthood plans: greying of the European baby boomers

The fertility rate has fallen sharply in the most affected by the crisis countries, the Vienna Institute of Demography sounded the alarm.

 In order for the economy of a country to be supported the minimum fertility rate required is 2.1 children per woman. Underneath this rate, the effect is catastrophic leading to population ageing – and respectively to economic downturn. An example for this is China where there are 4 elderly people for every 1 working person. Another study shows that by 2050 China will have only 2.2 people of working age for every one person over 65.

 The European crisis doesn’t only affect the unemployment or the purchasing power. It also has a direct and dramatic impact on the birth rate in Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland.

The lack of future perspective, the uncertainty and the augmentation of the unemployment are pushing people to reduce or delay their parenthood plans.

The financial crisis hit parenthood plans: greying of the European baby boomers

Fertility problems and financial crisis?

The Austrian researchers studied fertility in 22 European countries between 2008 and 2011. Shockingly, in 15 of them fertility rates have been declining and this disturbing trend keeps on continuing.

 “The European data shows a clear correlation between rising unemployment and declining birth rates,” says Tomas Sobotka.

 Spain, being the emblematic case, shows the highest rate of unemployment in Europe with its over 26% unemployment rate. The Spanish suffered a decline in the number of births in 2009, a year after the deterioration of the labor market. Its fertility rate, after rising from 1.23 in 2000 to 1.46 in 2008, fell to 1.36 in 2011.

 Two exceptions exist: Germany that never rose her fertility rate and France the fertility rate of which rose from 1.8 to 2 in ten years, despite the crisis, thanks to their generous family policy.

In Greece, the number of abortions has increased by 50% in 2011 to reach 300,000. In Portugal, the number of births fell from 2012 to 90,000, its lowest point in 60 years.

USA is following the same path.

Still, the future looks brighter as the world starts to wake up from the financial distress.

In our next post we are going to show you a couple of smart examples several countries used to motivate their citizens to become parents. In the meantime, for those of you who have already decided to support their local economy, we are here for you! – http://shop.conceiveplus.com/

Celebrity Baby Scoop: Elisabeth Rohm says she can be voice on infertility

Elisabeth Rohm just wrapped up participation in Fertility Planit – a two day event April 4-5 at the University of California at Los Angeles. The first event of its kind, Fertility Planit was an all-fertility focused show featuring leading fertility experts. Topics included Beginners Guild to Infertility, Becoming a Single Parent by Choice, Egg Freezing, Creating a LGBT family, Adoption, Male Infertility, Fertility Over 40, Adoption, and IVF.

The actress talked about motherhood, IVF and her book, “Having the Child I Always Wanted (Just Not As Expected).” Other celebrities who spoke included Emily Blunt, The Guncles’ Scout Masterson and Bill Horn, and Jason Patric.

Celebrity Baby Scoop caught up with Rohm before the event to discuss Fertility Planit, her past struggle with infertility, and being mom to her daughter Easton.

Q: Many couples struggle with infertility, and in your book “Having the Child I Always Wanted (Just Not As Expected)” you openly share your experience. How do you think your story has provided hope for women who haven’t been able to conceive?

A: “I think we all need a friend and a safe place to be able to tell our truth. Secrets are sickness, and suffering in silence is not advised. We all need human connection and compassion. Turning a subject that is taboo into something that is open is also comforting. I hope it is comforting to younger women who have yet to traverse the road to motherhood but may want to. I want to give them the right information so they can have the power of knowledge about what’s happening with their bodies. I think it creates a deeper community with women.”

Q: Fertility Planit is a unique forum to learn more about treatment options. What inspired you to become a part of this outreach?

A: “I don’t necessarily know how to advise anyone on treatment, but I can be a voice of openness and compassion on the subject. I want to encourage women to be proactive on behalf of their bodies. This just happens to be the disease that I have. If I had a different disease, I’d probably care a lot about women in that regard and I’d want to be open about that, sort of like Angelina Jolie being very open about getting a double mastectomy. I think that that is the highest way to live. Women are a community by nature and should be, because they need to connect, they need to talk, and they need to be able to count on each other.”

Q: What kind of support is available to women who struggle with infertility?

A: “If I accomplished one thing from writing my book, it would be to help women in the reproductive generation. They have their destiny in their hands, as they can go to their OB/GYN and check their fertility levels and hormone reserves. If you start doing that at 30, then you are in control of your destiny as a mother. I really want to see women empowered with good information. As far as advising them on doctor’s stuff, I have an incredible doctor who helps me. I would happily recommend him.”

Q: You’re a huge advocate for literacy. What kind of books do you read to Easton?

A: “We’re reading Harry Potter and we love it. She’s getting ready to turn 6 in April, so she’s just learning to read. I think it’s a pretty big accomplishment that she’s letting me read her a 400-page novel!”

Q: What advice would you give to parents to help their kids develop good reading habits?

A: “Love reading yourself and put some life into it. Be excited about it, come home and say, ‘Let’s read what happens next in Harry Potter!’ I can’t wait when I’m shooting and I’m not home and unable to read to her. It breaks my heart and I say to her, ‘I can’t believe we’re not going to be able to find out what happens next.’ I love storytelling because it mirrors our human experiences. You can light that love in your child and make them fall in love with storytelling. Storytelling is all about truth . . . you’re coming to terms with your truth. You identify with characters in movies and books, and if you love that, then your children will love it too. My mother and stepmother love to read, and I love that my daughter now loves to read because I love to read.”

Q: Is Easton looking forward to summer vacation?

A: “You know, she’s one of those really happy kids in her school, which is great! She’s landed where I think she needs to be, but she’s definitely excited. She gets to come to Montreal with me on holiday while I work. Then she’ll roll right into her beachy summer plans.”

Q: What do you have planned to keep her busy this summer?

A: “We’re in a beach community so she’ll go to beach camp and learn to surf and all of that. My husband and stepdaughter are big tennis players, so she’s going to start learning tennis this summer. You know, just the usual stuff.”

Q: Kids can be our best teachers. What kinds of things have you learned from Easton as her mom?

A: “I guess what I’ve learned is, sort of like my own mother taught me, is that it’s not over until it’s over. There’s always the opportunity for renewal and restoration of love. Each day is new and you may fall into your bed haggard and worn out, then in the morning you wake up and you have a second chance at love and you have a second chance at mothering. She’s taught me that. Every morning I wake up and I’m like, ‘WOW, I love you like crazy!’ You always have a new beginning; it ain’t over until it’s over. Oh guess what? You get another day tomorrow.”

Q: What kind of mom would Easton say you are?

A: “She always tells me that I’m the greatest mom in the world. What I think she means by that is I’m fun. I engage with her and I like to keep her curious mind alive. I laugh with her, nurture her, and don’t ignore her. I think I’m present. I’m not sure what she’d say, she’d probably just go ‘You’re a great Mom.’ ”

Q: What is one of your favorite Mommy and Me moments?

A: “There’s so many. Ultimately, I guess it’s the moment I’m about to have that excites me.”

Q: Do you have any upcoming projects you’d like to share with us?

A: “I am filming a pilot right now for TNT called ‘Guilt By Association,’ and I have a movie out. That’s kind of what’s happening.”

Tribe in Africa decides the birth date of a baby not from the day it’s born

Here is a tribe in Africa where the birth date of a child is counted not from when they were born, nor from when they are conceived but from the day that the child was a thought in its mother’s mind. And when a woman decides that she will have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, by herself, and she listens until she can hear the song of the child that wants to come. And after she’s heard the song of this child, she comes back to the man who will be the child’s father, and teaches it to him. And then, when they make love to physically conceive the child, some of that time they sing the song of the child, as a way to invite it.

And then, when the mother is pregnant, the mother teaches that child’s song to the midwives and the old women of the village, so that when the child is born, the old women and the people around her sing the child’s song to welcome it. And then, as the child grows up, the other villagers are taught the child’s song. If the child falls, or hurts its knee, someone picks it up and sings its song to it. Or perhaps the child does something wonderful, or goes through the rites of puberty, then as a way of honoring this person, the people of the village sing his or her song.

In the African tribe there is one other occasion upon which the villagers sing to the child. If at any time during his or her life, the person commits a crime or aberrant social act, the individual is called to the center of the village and the people in the community form a circle around them. Then they sing their song to them.

The tribe recognizes that the correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment; it is love and the remembrance of identity. When you recognize your own song, you have no desire or need to do anything that would hurt another.

And it goes this way through their life. In marriage, the songs are sung, together. And finally, when this child is lying in bed, ready to die, all the villagers know his or her song, and they sing—for the last time—the song to that person.

You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. When you feel good, what you are doing matches your song, and when you feel awful, it doesn’t. In the end, we shall all recognize our song and sing it well. You may feel a little warbly at the moment, but so have all the great singers. Just keep singing and you’ll find your way home.
