The Best Websites for Fertility and Pregnancy
The internet is an amazing source of information that, most days, I do not know what I would do without. At the same time, it can be an overwhelming source of anxiety.
When you’re trying to get pregnant, and once you are pregnant, the internet can either be your best friend, helping you know what to expect and how to handle the unexpected, or an intimidating enemy, scaring you with extremes and misinformation.
Here are 7 sites you’ll want to befriend when building your family. Seriously, bookmark these!
Anna started her blog to show others how she was able to get pregnancy naturally, after doctors informed her she would only have a successful pregnancy with the use of donor eggs. Although the 79 changes she made to her diet and lifestyle can feel intense, she backs up every post with well done research, and gives action steps on how to make the change you wish to make in order to get pregnant naturally.
Founded by a certified herbalist and birth doula, Natural Fertility Info is dedicated to providing up to date and well researched information while keeping everything approachable. Medical advisors are consulted for information, so you are in great hands! They also have a shop page where you can find every supplement and cleanse you could want.
Fertility IQ is not your average website. Primarily started to help people evaluate potential fertility doctors (still a major part of their platform), this site is a wealth of information on all things fertility.
They offer courses on everything from surrogacy for gay dads to body fat and fertility and everything in between. The articles are top notch and will accurately answer “everything you wish you never needed”.
Mama Glow exudes femininity and, without sounding too woo-woo, positive energy. Founder Latham Thomas created a brand that is supportive of women along their childbearing continuum. The websites mentors and partners are qualified holistic health leaders and the knowledge they share in the Mamazine as powerful as it is important.
I found Pregnant Chicken after having my son (luckily it’s a great site postpartum as well!) and regularly visit it, still. This blog gets real about all things motherhood, but keeps it humorous at the same time. This site is great for product lists, checklists, and all the support you could need.
Childbirth educator, birth doula, postpartum doula, breastfeeding advocate, and placenta encapsulator, Lindsey VanAlstyne founded Mothers Rising to support women in having a healthy pregnancy, natural birth, and happy postpartum. The site covers everything from birth stories to product reviews and truly gives you what you need to know without the BS you don’t.
