Fertility Empowering Gifts to Set Positive Intentions This Holiday Season
This holiday season, why not ask your friends and family for gifts that are going to have positive impacts on your fertility journey? Read on for my picks…
The holiday season can sometimes be difficult when you are trying for a baby. It might seem like you’re being strict and mindful of what you’re eating, drinking and doing (while the rest of the world is free to have fun).
It doesn’t have to feel that way though.
I have lots of gift ideas for you to ask your friends and family for this holiday season! It has never been more possible to receive beautiful, affordable gifts that are aligned with your goals of having a baby…
1. Membership to Positive Pregnancy Method ($100 off throughout December!)
Has your partner been asking you what to get you? Parents? Membership to my Positive Pregnancy Method program will benefit you far beyond the festive period + it’s available to purchase with a $100 discount throughout December.
The Positive Pregnancy Method is an online course that’s helping people all over the world empower their fertility and conceive beautiful babies.
It’s split into 6 key phases, each with in-depth protocols for you to follow. Each stage will help you to heal your health and fertility naturally + investigate the root causes for your struggles with infertility.
This gift would be transformative for your fertility journey and have positive impacts that last a lifetime.
2. Home Fertility Therapy: Vaginal Steam Herbs
Vaginal Steam Herbs are the most popular home fertility therapy with the women I coach. Using vaginal herbs is where self-care meets healthcare to create a beautiful, mindful and peaceful practice that also helps you to empower your reproductive health.
Why use vaginal herbs? The use of herbs enhances the power of steaming. Steaming alone is cleansing for the uterus and helps with circulation. Adding herbs to this process helps you to make your steaming therapy targeted at your symptoms, conditions and goals for the practice.
Want to try it? It’s a great “treat yo’self gift” for the holidays (or one to ask the other half / friends for)!
3. Mira Fertility Tracking
My favorite way to track ovulation right now is this new technology that has come out called: Mira. With a Mira, you can test your hormones at home — actual high grade lab, quality testing from the comfort of your own home.
One of my favorite things about this product is the Mira app. It’s 99% accurate. That’s been shown through research and it’s clinically proven to be accurate to show you when you’re ovulating! A gift that takes the guesswork out of everything. No more relying on BBT charting or OPKs (which often don’t work for my patients all of the time).
The Mira helps you track when you’re ovulating, test your estrogen and LH levels and – on top of that – for those of you whose LH doesn’t surge high enough, this is an AI app. Artificial intelligence will work to understand your body as a unique person and track your hormone levels for ovulation based on YOU (not on averages and numbers of other women) which is probably one of the most important things that we can do and the most value that this brings.
> Get your Mira. (Pssst. Use the code FERTILITYTV at the checkout to get $25 off)
4. Camel Milk
I know this one seems random! But stick with me here. If you’re thinking that camel milk seems like something only nomadic desert-dwellers would drink, you’re not alone; however, that couldn’t be further from the truth!
Did you realize that camel milk naturally has many similarities to human breast milk, contains prebiotics and probiotics, possesses minerals that may help support gut-health, and more?
This unique milk also is also full of substances that help support immune health, and it’s a source of health-promoting molecules and essential nutrients. Plus, many people with a cow milk allergy can drink camel milk without an allergic reaction.
One cup of camel milk, like this variety from the Desert Farms company, delivers many important proteins, minerals, and vitamins, to help you meet your nutritional needs. It contains protein, potassium, phosphorus, calcium and Vitamin B1.
This would make a great stocking filler!
5. FH Pro Combo
His and hers fertility supplements to kick off 2021 with the right foot!
I’ve been working with couples on their fertility journeys for years, helping them to find the root causes for their fertility blocks and harness the power of key fertility supplements that work to heal and empower their reproductive system.
The top of that supplement list is FH Pro for men and women.
FOR WOMEN: a fertility supplement designed to promote egg quality, improve ovulation, and enhance overall fertility. An antioxidant-based fertility pill PLUS a preconception vitamin with 100% or more Daily Value of key vitamins, including methylfolate.
FOR MEN: male fertility supplement designed to promote sperm function by decreasing oxidative stress. Shown in a clinical study to improve sperm count, motility and morphology.
6. Dry Farm Wines
Being gifted wine over the holidays doesn’t have to stop because you’re trying to conceive!
It’s a simple switch! Instead of ‘ordinary’ store bought wine, you can share the link below to guide your friends and family to a more fertility friendly wine company.
I love this wine company — as does my wife, it’s the only wine she can drink and not feel horrible the next day or get those dreaded wine headaches! The reason as to why this wine company can be consumed guilt free and on fertility plan is because all of their wines are organic and free of nasty chemicals.
7. Organic CBD Oil
Are stress and sleep familiar friends to you? Being gifted some CBD oil would be the perfect gift. I always recommend CBD to my fertility patients to help them manage stress, regulate sleep, emotions, pain and so much more…
Sleep is essential for healing and recovering as well as being crucial to stress management. For all of these reasons (and a MILLION MORE) sleep is a major fertility affecting factor.
When you get less than 6 hours of sleep a night you speed up cell degeneration and the aging process. Any of you on a fertility journey are aiming for slowing down the aging process and rejuvenation medicine!!!
Regular, high quality sleep works wonders for your body. Incorporating a good CBD oil can help with that.
8. Gua Sha and Jade Roller Bundle
This product comes from my lovely friend and fellow fertility coach, Aimee Raup. This is a wonderful self-care beauty routine to try out in 2021 (if you haven’t already) and it makes a great gift.
This beauty ritual is the perfect way to visually sculpt and contour your face, stimulate collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. Plus it feels so good. Your Aimee Raupp Beauty Jade Roller and Gua Sha bundle comes with one jade roller, one gold gua sha tool, one Rose Facial Toner (2 oz), and your choice of one facial oil (2 oz) (rejuvenating, balancing OR nourishing) beautifully packaged in velvet bag and gift box.
9. Snowballs Underwear
I’m pretty sure the male population acquires most of their new underwear over the holidays. It’s such an easy stocking filler! And now you can get him underwear that also helps with his fertility.
Cool balls = happy sperm.
This is definitely a chuckle worthy gift idea — but the effects of heat on sperm are no joke. Numerous studies have shown that heat diminishes sperm count. I would also say that heat makes a difference with sperm morphology (the shape of the sperm) which also affects the quality. In a study where the testicles were exposed to a 2 degree rise for 15 hours a day, there was a 9% drop in sperm count and a 35% drop in normal morphology.
It’s time to cool off down there!
10. Baby Dance Lube
I’m sure you’re going to be trying for a baby a lot over the holidays! (Doing your baby dance.) That makes fertility-friendly lube a great gift for your and/or your partner.
When you are trying to conceive, the only sure way to know that your lubricant won’t harm sperm is to choose a lubricant that is verified to be fertility-friendly like BabyDance. Regular lubes are harmful to sperm and make conception that extra bit harder.
11. Castor Oil Pack
Castor oil has a long history of traditional medical use dating back to ancient Egypt…
A castor oil pack is placed on the skin to increase circulation and to promote elimination and healing of the tissues and organs underneath the skin. It is used to stimulate the liver, relieve pain, increase lymphatic circulation, reduce inflammation, and improve digestion.
Castor oil packs are used in my home therapies fertility protocol to increase blood circulation to the reproductive system, regulate the menstrual cycle, relieve cysts + endometriosis, and more.
It’s a great gift to ask for and implement into your fertility self-care routine!
