The fertility diet

Parenting The Shine

For many women, getting pregnant can be a monumental challenge, but according to  women’s health and fertility expert Aimee Raupp, putting certain foods into your diet can actually increase your chances of conceiving. Raupp has extensively researched the link between foods and fertility, and in her new book, "Yes, You Can Get Pregnant" Aimee gives women a ‘fertility diet’ to follow. Things like protein, fat, and fruits and vegetable – which Aimee calls “The Three Big Yes’s” - are all essential to your diet if you’re trying to conceive.  Aimee walked us through her diet recommendations on “The Shine”.

 

In her latest film ("The Odd Life of Timothy Green") Jennifer Garner plays a mom faced with infertility.  Check out our interview with her about the scene that made her cry and why the making of the movie played a part in her decision to have another child.
