Most of us are told to try for a baby as young as possible, and that over a certain age your chances decrease. Maybe you’ve been led to think that it is too late?
Trying to conceive after age 40
It’s not unusual to prioritise your career, or to wait for the right circumstances and find yourself ready to build your family at a later age. Perhaps you have tried for a child for a while and reached your forties before getting pregnant. If you’re trying to conceive after age 40, there are ways to improve your chances of conceiving naturally.
You can learn to use the power of the mind-body connection. Our guided visualization programs are designed to improve your fertility by helping you reduce anxiety and reconnect with your body’s natural rhythms. The most popular of our programs for this is our Natural Cycle For Fertility Program.
If you do need to seek medical help, the range of fertility treatments available gives you further options. Guided visualization has proven to be an essential part of increasing chances for many women. Whatever your circumstances we are here for you, and you will find support within our community. If you are undergoing IVF or an IUI, our IVF / IUI Mind-Body Program will help you through this cycle. If you opt for an egg donation, our range of Egg + Embry Donation programs are designed help.
We received a call on our customer service line from a kind woman who inquired about our pregnancy program. After answering her questions about it, we gently asked if that meant she had recently found out she was pregnant. It was at this point that she opened up to us to share her incredible story:
At 47 years of age, and with an 8 year-old who had been conceived through IVF, I decided to try the Circle + Bloom Natural Cycle Program. A few weeks later, I happened to go to my OB for my annual exam. I had been a late for my period and told the doctor as such, thinking that maybe I was pre-menopausal. To my delight and amazement, my doctor told me that I was in my early stages of pregnancy. If this could happen for me, I am hopeful for other women in their 40s who wish to become pregnant naturally!
So is it possible for women over 40 to conceive naturally? Heck yeah! Read more from the wonderful feedback we’ve received from other women who were over 40 and trying to conceive and found that our Circle + Bloom programs helped them on their journey:
