We don’t know about you, but with Vitamin D Awareness Day just around the corner, falling on the 2nd November, (yes, there is an awareness day for pretty much everything these days!)
We find ourselves scrambling to the back of our drawers for that jar of supplements we bought last year when we were feeling a bit run down.
Remember though, that when you are trying to conceive, you need to bring those supplements to the foreground and pay close attention to what your body needs all year round.
When couples decide to try for a family, both women and men need to look after their diet and lifestyle in order to maximise their health and support conception.
Taking an additional nutritional supplementation is an important part of the plan, to get you in the best possible health nutritionally, ideally at least 6 months before a baby is conceived.
“The sperm and ovum are formed well in advance of fertilization and need to be provided with the best nutrition possible for when they combine. For example sperm take 75 days to form and up to 21 days to mature, which means a man’s current lifestyle and health will affect the sperm he produces 3 months from now.” Pregnacare.
There are multiple vitamins that you can take to help give your body that extra boost, not just vitamin D. This is why the lovely people at Pregnacare have gifted 10 of you lucky readers a free, three month supply of Pregnacare His and Her Conception (value £55).

In addition to the supplements for 10 of our lucky readers, Pregnacare is kindly supporting our beautiful campaign #ivfstrongertogether that launches this week
They will be giving away Pregnacare Conception 7 day sample packs to everyone that buys one of the pineapple pins at the Fertility Show this coming weekend.
By wearing a pin you are bringing awareness to what is still to this day a subject spoken about in whispers. The pin is not about labelling yourself; it’s about showing strength and support.
Thank you Pregnacare for showing your support!
Remember, look after your body, look after yourself, and look after each other.
