The start of the Chinese New Year is nearly upon us and begins on 12 February 2021. Babies born during this year will be born in the Year of the Ox.
In Chinese culture, the ox is a highly valued animal and babies born in the sign of the Ox are thought to be calm, fair-minded, dependable, honest and strong. These are all traits that are important to guide us through life.
Those born in the Year of the Ox are said to have a “strong as an ox” constitution and are thought to be of an unassuming and unimpeachable character. A self-reliant Ox child will from a young age find their own inner compass, charting their straight-and-narrow path forward.
If you are keen to try and have a baby in the Year of the Ox then here are a few fertility tips to help you on your way:
- If you are looking for fertility advice, City Fertility can help you in a range of ways including information booklets, over the phone advice from our Fertility Advice Centre or a consultation with one of our experienced specialists.
- Get the timing right: The peak time for conception are the days leading up to ovulation, as these are the most fertile days in a female’s cycle.
- Don’t stress: It is important to ensure you have adequate rest and relaxation. Let go of all daily non-essential activities and concentrate on your own wellbeing first.
- Be healthy: Following a sensible diet and exercise program can help boost your reproductive health. Having a healthy BMI is important too.
- Reduce toxins: Stopping or minimising things like smoking, alcohol and caffeine is wise.
- Take fertility boosting supplements: Increasing folic acid (women) and zinc/antioxidant (men) supplements is recommended.
