If there’s one thing couples who are trying to conceive know by now, it’s that babies usually don’t come about on the first try. 

In fact, if you go by statistics, every healthy couple has only about a 20 to 25 per cent chance of conceiving in every cycle, if the woman is below 30. At age 30, her chances of falling preggers drops to 15 per cent, and by age 35, she has only a 10 per cent chance every month.

Doesn’t sound very reassuring, does it? But don’t give up yet, start packing instead. Yes, you and your other half should go on a “conceptionmoon” ― a holiday dedicated solely to boosting your baby-making efforts.

Everybody knows that vacations are a great way to unwind and escape from daily stress triggers, two factors that play a major role in your ability to conceive.

Sounds like fun, but not sure how to plan one? No worries, SmartParents comes to your rescue with prime pointers. Follow them to a tee and you might just return from your trip with a tan and a bun in the oven

#1 Head to a romantic destination

First up, you have to nail the ideal location. Remember, this place has to ooze romantic vibes and must live up to its promise of ultimate serenity to set the stage for a baby-making marathon. Keep the duration of the trip in mind when narrowing down your choices. If you both only have a few days to spare, no point taking a long-haul trip since you’re going to end up travelling for the better part and that will only add to your exhaustion. Hot spots for a short trip include Phuket, Maldives and Bali. If you’re able to venture further, then opt for love capitals like Italy and Paris. By the way, don’t skimp on accommodation, it should be pure indulgence all the way. We’re talking rooms with ocean views, a king-sized bed, balcony, and maybe, even a private pool.

#2 Sync your holiday to when you ovulate

No point going on a baby-making vacation when it isn’t in tune with your fertility window. Not sure when it is? Start charting your cycle at once! Your luteal phase ― the duration between ovulation and your menstrual period ― should be between 14 and 16 days, give or take a few days. For best results, you should be having intercourse a few days before ovulation and on the day itself. If you need help to chart your cycle, invest in an ovulation kit.

#3 Pack a “goodie bag”

Besides packing the usual vacation things, also include items that will get both of you in the mood for lurve. These can be in the form of sex toys, racy lingerie, candles, massage oils, lubricants and a Spotify playlist loaded with soulful, jazzy tunes, a la Barry White.
