Hello all! My husband and I have been actively TTC for almost 2 years with no luck. I haven't been on birth control for 6 years! We've both been checked and we're good to go. We finally figured out that I wasn't ovulating. But since going vegetarian last year, I started ovulating 3 months ago! I'm completely confident that it's my new diet, as well as my new view on life. I'm aspiring to be vegan and I want to continue this lifestyle through my pregnancy and lactation. I also want to raise the kiddos vegan. My husband is a meat eater, but he's totally supportive <3


So, any of you ladies in the same boat? I'd love to get some advice from veteran vegans and vegetarians, as well as anyone else (: Good luck to all of us TTC!

Have you looked at the blog for The Kind Life?  Alicia Silverstone has posted a bunch of info/articles about being a vegan and pregnant, what supplements you need etc.


Maybe talk to your midwife too, or a midwife.


Good luck.


Have you read "Taking Charge of Your Fertility"? That might also be helpful

I'm actually on that blog right now! So much useful info. I haven't read that yet, I'll look into that, thanks!

I've recently contacted a midwife near my home. Just waiting for a call back. I'm not sure how she'll feel about the veganism though... I live in Texas, it's kind of unheard of here.


Thank you Simone!

Also, check out Kristen's blog at: http://kristensraw.com/blog/. If you go back in her archives, you'll see her pregnancy story. I think this one is the first one she wrote about pregnancy prep: http://kristensraw.com/blog/2008/05/09/kristen-suzanne-a-future-mom/. She also discusses more parenting while vegan (and mostly raw) at her other blog: http://greenmommyblog.com/
Thank you Amberella!
