Yoga – stress can hinder your chances on falling pregnant and exercise like yoga can help you de-stress.

Stop smoking – quitting smoking for both partners can increase your chance of conceiving significantly. Toxins in cigarettes damage both eggs and sperm.

Weight – keep both partner’s weight in the ideal BMI range. Weight can affect egg and sperm quality.

Folic acid – women should take a folic acid supplement while trying to concieve, which helps prevent neural tube defects in babies.
