Unfortunately miscarriages are sometimes a part of pregnancies and while most women are able to conceive after the experience, there are still concerns and a level of stress that effects all parties involved. The most common feeling after losing a baby is feelings of sadness and confusion and in worst-case scenarios depression. There are a variety of different reasons why a miscarriage may occur, such as poor health, pregnancy complications, which your body deems to be too serious to fix and terminates the pregnancy. Fortunately, there are a few ways to increase your future chances of conceiving and the best policy for a successful baby is to prepare yourself beforehand.

Waiting Period
Time tends to heal most complications relating to a miscarriage, however some couples will insist on beginning the process immediately after. If this is your situation then you need to know that it is best to wait at least one cycle before beginning the process again. Allowing one cycle will help your body to restart and make sure that all the necessities are there, often flushing out impurities relating to the last miscarriage.

Fertility Acupuncture
Fertility acupuncture has been around for hundreds of years and is often used in combination with other herbal remedies such as chaste berry. Naturopaths and herbal medicine doctors, helping to regulate hormones and increase the overall functioning of the ovaries and their follicles, most often use it. More importantly, it helps promote the growth of a thick uterine lining that is suitable for embryo attachment. The treatment is available in most large cities and all you have to do is first book a consultation and then later the actual treatment. The cost of the process varies depending on the acupuncturist and the availability of the practice in the city you are in.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
This option is suited to more serious couples that have been told by their doctors that the herbal methods are probably not enough to help them conceive. IVF is more invasive then most other fertility enhancing options, however it is also been shown to have more of a success rate, which is why most doctors often recommend it to. The downside to this process is that it is expensive and most countries that offer health plans will not cover any of the expense associated with the process. The practice involves extracting an egg from the woman and mixing it with a sperm sample from the man. The two are grown in a dish for a few days to help them fertilize and then they are inserted into the women's uterus where they are expected to grow naturally.
