Can changing our lifestyle help?

Our fertility specialists can advise you how to increase your chances of IVF success, helping you on your journey to parenthood.

We want to help you improve your ‘fertility fitness’, so we advise you of things you can do to boost your fertility and your wellbeing.
There are a number of ways to improve your ‘fertility fitness’; often small lifestyle changes can greatly increase your chances of becoming pregnant, including:

  • Reducing or eliminating alcohol
  • Stopping smoking
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Avoiding Zika virus-affected areas
  • Taking a folic acid supplement
