Conception

Conception:  Conception occurs when a sperm penetrates a mature egg. The fertilized egg starts dividing into many cells and continues its journey down the Fallopian tubes, into the uterus where it implants itself into the endometrium. The cervix becomes “plugged” by a thick mucus. Your baby is an embryo until the 8th week after fertilization and becomes referred to as a fetus around the 9th week.

Tips for getting pregnant:

  • Stop smoking
  • Decrease alcohol intake and stopping alcohol intake once pregnant.
  • Stop recreational drug use
  • Discontinue use of contraceptives
  • Lowering stress levels
  • Maintain a healthy diet and remain active
  • Know your cycle
