Help for hopeful moms-to-be: relaxation

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A message for women finding it difficult to get pregnant: take a few deep breaths and say "ohm."

A new study from the National Institutes of Health finds stress might make it harder for women to conceive a child.

Using saliva samples, researchers found those with the highest markers of stress were less likely to get pregnant.

Doctors say stressed women may want to explore relaxation techniques, like yoga and massage therapy.
