Mommy Monday: Stress Is The Enemy Of Fertility

Posted:

A new study has been released that has researchers calling stress the "enemy of fertility."

Researchers in Michigan and Texas studied nearly 400 couples trying to become parents. 

They followed them for 12 years and found potential moms who had higher levels of stress faced a longer wait for pregnancy and an increased lifetime risk for infertility. 

In fact, these prospective moms had a 29 percent reduction in the ability to conceive.

So potential parents:  consider meditation, yoga, exercise, or just a good deep breath now and then.
