Ep47 – 7 things vaginas love when trying to conceive
Hello, I’m Katy Bradbury, a qualified Nutritional Therapist, private Health Visitor and qualified nurse. I have worked within Women’s Health, Maternal and Children’s Health for many years.
Today’s podcast is titled “7 things vaginas love when trying to conceive.” In this episode, I discuss the implications of vaginal health on fertility, including the vaginal microbiome, the levels of acidity, how it all matters in the context of symptoms, and some simple lifestyle things to consider to make your vagina a happier and healthier place to be able to help sustain a pregnancy.
