According to Seattle-based naturopathic doctor, Priscilla Natanson, stress is the Number 1 Enemy of women over 40 who are trying to conceive naturally.
“Most women I have known who are having kids in their late 30’s or early 40’s are having no trouble conceiving if they are relaxed and having fun with the process,” says Dr. Natanson, who had her son at 40.
Ironically, anxiety over whether conception is possible makes women over 40 more prone to stress. The ticking of the biological clock is a constant reminder that time is running out. Here’s what you can do to feel more positive about your chances of conceiving. Our top experts share tips and books on how they got pregnant naturally after 40!

Get Healthy. Establish a healthy baseline from which to become pregnant, including proper hormonal balance, diet and dietary supplements, including clean fish oils, extra folic acid, vitamin D and probiotics needed to conceive and carry a healthy pregnancy.
Check For Food Allergies. Get checked out for food allergies or sensitivities—if women are having difficulty conceiving, it is often the case that there is a particular food sensitivity that is affecting their body in a negative way.
Chillax! Use acupuncture and massage to get your body relaxed and prepared. Try to make the process fun, lighthearted and loving. For women with male partners, say: “let’s just have fun for a few months before we start stressing to make it happen”.

Detox Diet. Try a good detox at least 3 months before you start trying to get pregnant by simply eating lots of organic fruit and vegetables, cutting out junk foods, live foods (as opposed to processed food) that are nutrient-dense, rich in essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants.
Oxygenate! Breathing in plenty of fresh air will flood the cells with oxygenated blood through exercise like nature walks, yoga, tai chi and qi gong. Natural light is also necessary for healthy conception—lack of vitamin D is linked to infertility in men.
Keep The Faith. Our health is to a fair extent determined by our thoughts and emotions. By believing you can and will get pregnant when the time is right and trusting this belief means you’re more likely to manifest a pregnancy.
