FERTILITY DOLLS AND ARTIFACTS...WORK FOR SOME!

DO FERTILITY SYMBOLS WORK?

Have you ever wondered if fertility artifacts and dolls really work?  I'll have to admit, I do put some belief in them.  Just from the standpoint of the law of attraction, what you focus on is what you will attract to yoursel, these artifacts just help you focus.  Here is an article about artifacts and dolls for fertility.  Did I get this off some obscure website? No, I got it from "The NY Times"! Does that lend this credibility? I don't know, that's for you to decide. For anyone interested, read more:

As legend has it, a woman named Akua was barren until a healer instructed her to carry and care for a doll as if it were a child. Villagers jeered, but her faith was rewarded with the birth of a daughter -- the ''ba,'' or child, in the doll's name. Now recognized all over Africa as a symbol of political empowerment and intellectual freedom as well as fertility, the doll is mass-manufactured for export

and domestic use (both play and ritual).

''My wife is pregnant, and we have two of them,'' says Mark Bessire, a former Fulbright Fellow in Tanzania who with his wife, Aimee, is the curator of ''Art of Identity: African Sculpture From the Teel Collection'' at the Fogg Museum of Art at Harvard University through next year. ''While you're carrying this figure, you're thinking about the positive experience of having a baby. It's a kind of training. People decorate them or put beads on them to empower them. It's very personal.''

In African practice, once a doll has done its job, it is piled with others on the shrine of the healer who prescribed it, much as Western women send baby photos to a doctor's office, where they are displayed as proof of the doctor's skill.

In the African view, fertility is a gift from ancestors, infertility an evil rooted in the discontent of ancestors. Activated by the power of play, dolls function like a wish that is about to come true.

TALK THERAPY: EFFECTIVE FERTILITY TREATMENT!

Fertility Support Groups and Talk Therapy May Help You Get Pregnant

Before you jump into the high tech, expensive and sometimes dangerous world of fertility treatments, don't forget one of the oldest forms of healing: Talking. That's why I usually recommend a support group for women or couples who are trying to conceive and experiencing infertility.

SEE ALSO: INFERTILITY AND THE STRESS CONNECTION (getpregnantover40.com)

I've written countless times about how stress affects fertility. Then you throw in a holiday along with the end of the year or a birthday (with no baby yet) and you have a recipe for disaster. Talking it out may be the most effective treatment of all. Here's an article that seconds that notion:
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

Couples who are undergoing infertility treatment could benefit from talk therapy, researchers have said.

Many women suffer from stress-related infertility, particularly during the winter months.

Dr Deidra Rausch, a counsellor in the US who specialises in infertility, explained: "For them, the end of the year becomes another marker in their inability to have children.

"Plus, the seasonal emphasis on family can become a painful reminder of their ongoing struggles."

Dr Rausch cited new research presented at a fertility conference in Prague that found evidence of the benefits of talk therapy.

The study, conducted by scientists at Emory University, found that of eight women who participated in a cognitive behaviour therapy course, six regained full fertility and two became pregnant within two months.

The expert concluded that a mental health professional could help couples undergoing infertility treatment by alleviating feelings of depression and anxiety and boosting self-esteem.

46 YEAR OLD PREGNANT NATURALLY PUTS UP WITH RUDE COMMENTS

Here is a story about a woman who got pregnant naturally at the age of 46.  Her story isn't all that remarkable if you ask me (since I've done many posts on women who get pregnant in their mid 40's and beyond! Click here for stories of women who got pregnant over 50 naturally (getpregnantover40.com).

Debbie Martindale tells her story to the Telegraph (UK) of some of the insensitive remarks that she had to endure through her pregnancy from healthcare professionals and others:


People are often surprised it was a natural pregnancy, not IVF. An elderly male GP told me, ‘Oh,
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Sacral Chakra Bracelet
you’ve left it too late, haven’t you?’ And a female pharmacy assistant repeatedly tried to correct me after I ticked the ‘pregnant’ box on the back of my prescription form. She was adamant I’d ticked the wrong thing. She saw my date of birth and thought I couldn’t possibly be pregnant at 46 – she obviously thought I was too old to be having a baby.
I was shocked and felt like slapping her. Some of my friends and family were a little surprised at my pregnancy, but luckily they thought it was amazing.

HOW TO PERFORM UTERINE LIFT TO GET PREGNANT

Uterine Massage and Lift Technique To Help Get Pregnant Over 40

http://getpregnantover40.com/videoabout.htm
Click here for Fertility Bodywork Video
Here is an interesting article about how many women have uterine displacement. This site is promoting their massage techniques to help correct this problem, but they have some interesting information about how the female organs can get out of place. Also, my DVD, "Fertility Bodywork" has a segment on pelvic massage including the uterine lift. Read more:

Maya Abdominal Lift Technique (excerpted from www.web.net)


From the article:

With so many women suffering from dysmenorrhea, we wondered how uterine massage could help. Verna said that the prostaglandins which are cited as the pain inducing culprits are in fact pro-inflammatory chemical prostaglandins PG 1 and 2. “If there is venous stasis,” she explained, “everything gets boggy. The lymph is not draining so you have a swampy area which is more prone to inflammation and the bad prostaglandins.” She went on to say that if the uterus is not sitting right, there are mechanical reasons for it to get “clogged” and “boggy”. The arteries leading to and from the uterus can get torqued. Where the uterus is supposed to be doing this gentle contracting (Verna did a smooth wave with her body) when it is misplaced or there is inflammation, “it’s like trying to hork up a hairball”. This is a combination of inflammation, poor drainage and poor blood flow.



According to Verna, the Maya say, “If a woman’s uterus is not in the right place, she can’t think right.” Verna adds that it is the centre of a woman’s creative energy.



What about endometriosis? Verna explained that 40% of the blood in the body goes through the lymph channels. When the lymph is not draining, “you are a sewer”. With endo, the technique might help once things are draining better. Verna has seen uteruses in a position (she leans over demonstrating) where the fascia between the outside of the uterus and the outside of the bladder are stuck together. You have to be very gentle, she says – “kind of like moving egg yolks around”. The uterus can go back, forward or sideways. The Fallopian tube (one arm now simulates a crushed tube) can get moved out of position. “Try getting pregnant with that!” Verna says the body “moves out of the way” of an affected organ for survival. She illustrates with the example of a person who has a heart attack and breaks their leg at the same time. “The leg won’t hurt, but the heart muscle sure will. Probably, a few days later, when the cast is on, that leg will hurt like hell. The body prioritizes.”



“What’s exciting,” she says, “is that the technique is quite easy and has potential to be so helpful”.

BBT CHARTING FOR OVULATION, PROS AND CONS, DOES IT WORK?

I did try the good old fashioned basal body temperature charting when we first started trying to conceive (this was before we tried all of the high tech fertility treatment...all of which failed).  Many couples call this the rhythm method.  I found it to be rather difficult and confusing in terms of actually detecting a temperature change.  I would frequently second guess myself.  If I were to do it before the egg makes its appearance.

Fertility Necklaces, featured: Guardian Angel with healing stones
over again, I would have just used the ovulation predictor kits.  There are many reasons why the BBT monitoring method may not be the best for detecting ovulation.  First of all, once your temperature goes up, you may have already ovulated.  Most experts agree, the sperm need to be ready and waiting

NUTRIENTS THAT GIVE SPERM A BOOST AND FOODS THAT HAVE THEM

Healthy Sperm With Healthy Eating

I've written before about how men can eat to enhance their fertility. This article give a nice summary of what the man in your life can do to enhance their sperm quality:
See My Series In Foods For Fertility at www.getpregnantover40.com
From the article:

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Click here for our varied selection of fertility bracelets
Oysters: they are high in zinc which is scientifically proven to increase sperm count: Journal of Laboratory Clinical Medicine” found that zinc deficiency in men decreased sperm count in four out of five study members, and as soon as they started increasing zinc intake, a sperm count increased.

Spinach is rich in folic acid – a vitamin that increases overall sperm count and motility, especially when eaten in conjunction with vitamin C rich foods that promote absorption of folic acid. Men with low levels of folate have more sperm with chromosomal abnormalities. A study that was published in an issue of Fertility and Sterility showed that the combination of zinc and folic acid were found to have a positive effect in increasing sperm count.

Eggs, promote male fertility and improve chances of conception, because they are high in vitamin E. Vitamin E is in case of deficiency linked to testicular tissue degeneration.

Fruits that is rich in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, strawberries, cherries, asparagus, snow peas, cooked tomatoes, Study proved that a semen of men with a diet of up to 1,000 mgs of vitamin C a day has less clumping than that of their deficient counterparts. This means their semen had increased motility and of course increased possibility of fertilization.

Food rich in vitamin A, including carrots, red peppers, oatmeal, dried apricots, dark green lettuce, broccoli, spinach, sweet potatoes etc. Vitamin A helps grow healthy sperm, and deficiencies in vitamin A in men are linked to lowered fertility due to sluggish sperm.

Nuts: every person should eat a hand full of nuts every day. It is your choice: nuts, almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts… take what you want. Scientists recommend eating choosing walnuts and almonds because they are both rich with arginine, an amino acid that increases sperm production and blood flow. Increased blood flow is related with stronger erections, which, though unrelated to sperm count, is correlated with higher rates of fertilization. On the other hand Brazil nuts are high in selenium that is an essential mineral for developing normal sperm and in increasing sperm motility.

Whole grains increase chromium levels, thereby increasing your sperm count; studies namely prove that low chromium levels are correlated with decreased sperm count.

Make sure to include DHA and other essential omega-3 fatty acids into your diet because they help improve blood flow to the genitals and increase sexual function. DHA and other essential omega-3 fatty acids are found in salmon, sardines, anchovies, walnuts, arugula, crab, shrimp, flax, chicken, fish oil,

HOW THE MOON CAN HELP YOU GET PREGNANT

New Moon Manifestation Ceremony - Manifest Your Biggest Dreams

Guest Post By Rebekah Campbell

The moon's cycle is 28 days and it has a powerful effect on our energies. While a full moon completes this cycle and brings the energies of completion, ending, change, and release of those things that no longer serve us, the new moon brings the energies of creation, birth, rebirth, and manifestation.
One of the best ways to honour, recognize, and use this energy for maximum benefit is to create a
New Moon Ceremony. There are many ways to create a ceremony for this purpose, while I am sharing the new moon ceremony that I enjoy each month with my twin flame, Boyd Campbell, I want you to follow your own guidance and intuition in creating a new moon ceremony that resonates with you. If this one resonates for you, perfect! If not, make your own changes until it does, or create something completely new.

SEE ALSO:  CHAKRAS FOR FERTILITY (SACRAL CHAKRA TO GET PREGNANT  (getpregnantover40.com)

You can perform this ceremony with others or alone, and it is very powerful, especially when it becomes a regular part of your monthly spiritual cycle. Your intentions will change as you grow, so doing this each month will keep your intentions clear and focused, bringing renewed dedication. This ceremony is a natural progression following your full moon release ceremony.
The new moon is a time to reflect and become clear and focused on what it is that we are wanting to create and manifest in our lives. So let's get started!
What you will need:

  • Sage or Sage Incense

  • One or more of the following; Jasmine Incense, Clove Incense, Sage Incense, Patchouli Incense, Cinnamon Incense, Lavender Incense, Vanilla Incense, Musk Incense, Amber Incense, Frankincense Incense, Lilac Incense, Sandalwood Incense, Cedar Incense

  • Feather

  • Himalayan Salt (in a dish)

  • Water (in a dish)

  • White Candle

  • Citrine crystals (2)

  • Clear Quartz crystals (2)

  • Paper with pen or pencil to write

  • Smudge shell or dish
    http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
    Fertility Necklaces, many styles, click here

  • Lighter or matches

1. To start, use your sage to smudge your ceremony area and yourself, including your sacred space/altar. Either white sage or white sage incense will work. By smudging with sage you are clearing all negative energies and leaving your space and your aura cleansed - a clean slate for your manifestation ceremony.
2. Now select whichever incense or combination of incense resonates with you for this ceremony. Light them and leave them burning throughout the ceremony.
Financial and Material Manifestations (money matters, possessions such as a new home):
Sage, Mint, Basil, Clove, Jasmine, Patchouli, or Cinnamon
Health and Well-Being (curing physical ailments, boosting energy, promoting vitality):
Amber, Frankincense, Sage, Lavender, Lilac, or Cinnamon
Love & Relationships (healing a relationship, attracting your soul mate, making yourself more attractive): Cinnamon, Jasmine, Musk, Lavender, Vanilla, or Patchouli
Spiritual Growth: Sandalwood, Jasmine, Musk, Cedar, Lavender, or Anis
Protection from Harm: Frankincense, or Sage
Strength and Courage: Lavender, Musk, or Cinnamon
Fertility: Patchouli or Musk
3. Now it's time to set up your alter/sacred space. I like to incorporate the four elements; earth, water, fire and air. I do this by setting up a cup of water (water), a cup of himalayan salt (earth), a feather (air) and lighting my white candle (fire). The white candle symbolizes universal consciousness, purity, truth, unity, happiness and spirituality - divine connection.
4. Citrine and Clear Quartz - great crystals for a manifestation ceremony. Arrange your crystals on your alter/sacred space however feels right for you. Boyd and I like to set them up in a square pattern representing the four directions. The Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is energizing and life giving, clearing the mind and stirring the soul into action. Clear Quartz is a high vibration crystal that helps with concentration, increased awareness, inspiration and creativity. It is also an amplifier, thus it amplifies the power of your intention and the power of the Citrine crystals.
5. Now take a few moments to become quiet and meditate. You can invite your guides, angels, ascended masters, or whoever else you would like to be there with you. When you are ready, write down on a piece of paper what it is that you want to manifest. Make a list of what you want to create in your life. Think big, these are your dreams! The new moon is a perfect time to manifest what you may feel is out of reach, don't be scared to create your vision here. These are more than just words on a piece of paper, by writing down your intentions you are making a commitment to co-creating with the universe. You are opening the doors and setting your dreams into motion. At the top of the paper write down, "I openly accept these things into my life, or something even better than I have imagined, for the highest good of everyone involved. So be it."
6. A big part of being successful with your new moon manifestations is keeping them in the forefront of your awareness. Keep them in a visible spot, or in your purse or wallet. Journal about your progress.
7. Make adjustments to your list as the month goes by, it is only natural that your desires will change over time. Check off the things that you have received. You may find it helpful to make a vision or dream collage with pictures that illustrate what you are manifesting, and be sure to spend time looking at it each day, focusing on how you FEEL as you imagine already having these things.
8. Each month you will renew this list at a repeated new moon manifestation ceremony, thus re-dedicating your intentions.
Important Factors to Note:

  • For those of you who are attuned to Reiki, use your Reiki throughout the ceremony and if you have been attuned to Reiki Symbols, draw them on your paper.

  • For those of you who know how to create crystal grids, put this list in a grid and keep it charged.

PREGNANCY OUTCOMES: GOOD NEWS FOR WOMEN 45 AND OLDER!

Getting Pregnant At 45 And Older - Good Outcomes

I have cited a study below which concludes that pregnancy in "older" women has generally good outcomes for mother and baby.
 The study states that this is reassuring for women age 45 and older. Read more:

SEE ALSO: PREGNANCY COMPLICATIONS AND BIRTH DEFECTS OVER 40 (getpregnantover40.com)

RESULTS: Seventy-seven pregnancies in 76 women aged 45 years and over were registered in the 10-year period. There were 74 liveborn singletons, two sets of liveborn twins and one set of twins stillborn at 20 weeks' gestation. Sixteen women were primiparous. Eighty-four percent of pregnancies

Elephant Feng Shui Fertility Bracelet with Healing Stones
were conceived naturally and 53% underwent prenatal chromosomal determination; 53% of women had no pre-existing medical problems, 13% had hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and 8% of women developed gestational diabetes. There were 10 preterm and six post dates deliveries. The Caesarean section rate was 49%, compared to 23% in the 20-29 years age group (P < 0.001). Ten percent of neonates were small for gestational age, and 8% were large for gestational age. Seventeen percent required admission to the special care nursery and 6% had congenital abnormalities.

CONCLUSIONS: Maternal and neonatal outcomes in this series were generally good. There was a significantly increased rate of Caesarean section. Overall, this study is reassuring for women aged 45 and over who have good general health and a chromosomally normal fetus.

GREEN TEA, FERTILITY TEAS TO HELP YOU CONCEIVE, GET PREGNANT

Ive written many times about fertility tea recipes (click here for more on getpregnantover40.com) and formulas that are on the market...but what about just the regular tea you usually find in grocery stores or in restaurants?  What about green tea?  Well, it turns out that both green tea and regular tea have many helpful ingredients and nutrients that can improve overall health and fertility.  Regular tea and green tea both have polyphenols and hypoxanthine which may be responsible for more viable embryos and possibly a greater chance of fertilization. Both of these teas contain caffeine, so the decaffeinated variety may be best because there is evidence that caffeine can harm fertility and contribute to miscarriage.

FERTILE WINDOW TO GET PREGNANT, HARD TO FIND

 Pregnancy Over 40, Menstrual Cycles and Fertile Windows Have A Lot Of Variability

I've written many times about how ovulation can be quite hard to pinpoint.  That's why having a regular pattern of intercourse is important.
Since ovulation can occur at different times, your fertile window may be very hard to predict. Here is an article that talks about a women's "fertile window"  I found it interesting that only 30% of women were within their fertile window entirely between the days  10-17 of their cycle (this doesn't mean that they weren't fertile during some cycles within in this range, just not all cycles).  Read more:

  SEE ALSO: SHORT MENSTRUAL CYCLES AND FERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com)

http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Saint Gerard Fertility Necklace
Results: The fertile window occurred during a broad range of days in the menstrual cycle. On every day between days 6 and 21, women had at minimum a 10% probability of being in their fertile window. Women cannot predict a sporadic late ovulation; 4-6% of women whose cycles had not yet resumed were potentially fertile in the fifth week of their cycle.

Conclusions: In only about 30% of women is the fertile window entirely within the days of the menstrual cycle identified by clinical guidelines—that is, between days 10 and 17. Most women reach their fertile window earlier and others much later. Women should be advised that the timing of their fertile window can be highly unpredictable, even if their cycles are usually regular.

WOMAN 44, PREGNANT NATURALLY AFTER INFERTILITY

Pregnancy Over 40, Infertility and Dealing With The Fertile World

I still love to share this story, even though it's been a few years ago now.  I received an e-mail from a woman I met when I ran the women's support group for my local infertility organization. She conceived naturally while on a break from her fertility treatments and had her baby on her 44th birthday.
 She was talking about how other women who conceive easily have no clue what infertility is like. It's still a bit of a sore spot with most of us even after we succeed in having a baby.  Other people just seem to take for granted what a miracle it is to have a child.

THIS ARTICLE MAY ALSO BE HELPFUL: SHARING INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR INFERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com)

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertility Bracelets, click here for all styles and order info.
It reminds me of a time when I was talking with some other mothers at our local library's "storytime". One woman was trying to conceive her second child and was getting a bit impatient because two months had gone by and she still wasn't pregnant.   It almost made me want to laugh because after everything I had gone through, two months was a blink of an eye.  Without thinking, I blurted out "try
six years". I immediately knew I shouldn't have said that. She and a few others turned and looked at me dumbfounded like I was some kind of freak. Since then I'm much more selective who I share my information with.

The moral of the story is that going through infertility teaches you how to appreciate even the smallest of blessings. That's a blessing in itself. When you appreciate what you have or what your given, life is so much more rewarding.

INOSITOL, MYOINOSITOL FOR FERTILITY, EGG QUALITY

Getting Pregnant With The Help Of Inositol

I've been hearing more and more about inositol for female fertility. Inositol or sometimes called myo-inositol can help with insulin resistance and it is one of the B vitamins. It can help with ovulatory disorders and help women who have stopped getting their periods as a result. Here is an

excerpt from a study done on women who took myo-inositol
 from: nih.gov:
 "the number of mature oocytes was significantly increased in the myo-inositol group compared to D-chiro-inositol. Concurrently, the number of immature oocytes decreased in myo-inositol treated

patients. Furthermore, the myo-inositol-treated group showed an increase in the mean number of top quality embryos and in the total number of pregnancies compared to the D-chiro-inositol-treated group.CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE ON INOSITOL AND HOW IT CAN HELP YOU CONCEIVE (Getpregnantover40.com)

LAUGHING: FUN WAY TO GET PREGNANT, REALLY!

Laughing Can Help Fertility

Much has been written about the healing power of laughter and it can be an important factor in changing your mindset and lowering your resistance.  Laughter can lower your blood pressure, reduce stress (and stress hormones), increase endorphins (natural painkillers) and strengthen the immune system.    Best of all it’s free and fun! 

Has laughter ever been studied in regards to fertility? There was actually a study done in Israel on women undergoing IVF.   Half of them were entertained by a clown for about 15 minutes after the embryos were transferred into their wombs.  The routine included jokes, tricks, and magic and was performed on a one-to-one basis.  The study sample included 219 patients (110 in the intervention group and 109 in the control group). There were no significant differences between the groups regarding age. The pregnancy rate in the intervention group was 36.4%, compared with 20.2% in the control group. Researchers thought “laughter may have an effect on the embryo-uterine interplay through neuroendocrine pathways or non-ovarian stress reduction, augmenting uterine receptivity”.[1]

SEE ALSO: HOW STRESS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO MISCARRIAGE AND INFERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com)


Although this study was done on women undergoing IVF, I can’t help but believe that the beneficial effect of laughter can help women who are trying to conceive naturally too.
How can you laugh at a time like this?  You just have to figure out what tickles your funny bone.  For me, watching the television show where people send in their silly home videos was a guaranteed laugh.  Sometimes I’d have tears running down my face I would laugh so hard.  Try it!  I didn’t always feel like laughing, but I’d start watching and I couldn’t contain myself!  Many cable channels play the reruns at all hours and you can find almost anything online, so it’s pretty easy to find at least one episode per day.  It’s those belly laughs that make you cry that are especially healing and cathartic.

WHY ARE FLAXSEEDS SO GOOD FOR FERTILITY, GETTING PREGNANT?

When I was trying to conceive, I immediately added ground flaxseeds (or "flax meal") to my diet.  I had read an article written by a dietician who gave all of the benefits of flaxseeds - not only for fertility but for overall health.  I actually just ground them myself in a coffee bean grinder (an old wedding gift I finally found a use for!)  I would just take a couple of tablespoons every day.  Some people add them to their food, but it was just easier for me to take them right from the spoon and wash them down with water.  They actually have a nice nutty taste, so they're great to throw in a salad.  But I would definitely grind them up because they can be hard to digest and they may go through your system whole and you won't get the benefit of the essential fatty acids.  Also, keep them refrigerated.  Be sure to buy them fresh and refrigerated as well because the oils inside can easily spoil.  Here is an article about the benefit of flaxseeds for reproductive hormones:

SEE ALSO: FOODS FOR FERTILITY AND PREGNANCY (getpregnantover40.com) 



1) Lignans

Flaxseeds contain a series of chemicals called lignans, which have a phytoestrogenic effect. Phytoestrogens, or “plant-estrogens” are very weak hormone analogues that talk to the body’s hormone receptors and modulate their actions. In other words, it can help lower the estrogenic effect when you have too much or raise it when you have too little.

2) Sex Hormone Binding Globulin

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Kokopelli Fertility Bracelet click here
Our bodies produce a protein in our blood called Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, or SHBG. SHBG has an affinity for testosterone and estrogen – two hormones which are commonly elevated in women with hormone conditions such as PCOS or painful periods. When SHBG binds a hormone, it renders the hormone inactive, but hormone imbalance often lowers SHBG levels. A study showed the flaxseed consumption raised SHBG when it needed to be increased, and minimized the detrimental effects of excess estrogen and testosterone.

3) Regularity

The primary route of excretion of excess hormones is through the bowels. Being regular is essential to hormonal health – you need to go to the washroom at least once per day. Flaxseed is a source of fibre that gels up in the digestive tract and helps to move things along the intestines. Not only does this make flax a great option for hormones, but it also helps rid the body of excess cholesterol as well.

WOMAN PREGNANT OVER 50 NATURALLY, TRUE STORY

I frequently post stories of women who got pregnant over 40 naturally...and...I frequently post stories of women who got pregnant over 50 naturally!  As a matter of fact, I have a page on my website devoted to true stories of documented cases of women pregnant naturally over 50 (click here getpregnantover40.com).
Well, here is another story which I just came across from parenting.com.  A woman by the name of Morgan Zantua of course thought she was too old to have a baby since she was over 50.  Well, fate had other plans and she was shocked to find out that she was pregnant:  From the article:

...at age 51, Zantua was in graduate school and juggling three jobs. She and her husband, then 56, planned to eventually sell their home in Tacoma and travel around the world. Then Zantua noticed she couldn't button her skirts and often felt exceptionally warm and tired. She thought, "Boy, menopause is hitting awfully fast," and she booked a consultation with her doctor.
Before the appointment, a friend suggested she take a pregnancy test. And since she always tried to be open-minded, she did—and discovered she was having a baby. "I was stunned," she says. "I have friends younger than I am who are grandparents, and here I was becoming a mom." Luckily, she says, her husband kept her calm. "I was overjoyed and totally petrified at the same time, but George was such an anchor," she says. "He was surprised, too, of course, but he helped me shift gears for this next stage in our lives. We were both elated."
The next day Zantua's gynecologist confirmed she was five months pregnant with a healthy baby girl.

What is Vitex or Chasteberry, where does it come from?

You may have heard of Vitex (Vitex Cactus Agnus) or commonly known as Chasteberry. It is a flowering plant and it grows in warmer climates. It got it's name because it was thought to be an "anaphrodisiac" (the opposite of an aphrodisiac) so it was thought to keep women chaste. However, some sources claim it is an aphrodisiac.
Vitex is thought to have a positive affect on reproductive hormones because of its action on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland.
Vitex acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary glands inside the brain by increasing luteinizing hormone (LH) production and mildly inhibiting the release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
