MYF 16 | Are You Healthy Enough to Get Pregnant?
Welcome to Episode 16!
In this episode, we talk about common health symptoms that can have a major impact on fertility and your future baby's health and what you can do to investigate and address them. We also go into why we don't always recognize when something is going wrong with our health and help you understand the specific symptoms you need to be watching for if you're wanting to get pregnant in the next year.
We have a FREE quiz that goes along with this episode to help you identify which symptoms apply to you. Access the quiz here!
