Too busy to make a baby? Or maybe just getting frustrated from trying?
We all know how stressful it can be to hold a demanding job and struggle through the frustration of TRYING to get pregnant. I have so many friends in this situation. And then there's the people who want to schedule everything, even conception.
That's why a story in today's Miami Herald caught my eye. A new trend called Procreation Vacations has hotels around the world luring conception-minded couples by helping them relax and providing everything from on-site sex doctors to age-old fertility boosters promised to hasten the pitter-patter of little feet. A article in today's Miami Herald details this new trend and gives the names of a few hotels offering these packages. Click here for the full article. The couple pictured, Lucinda and Kemry Hughes, said they became expectant parents right after their Procreation Vacation.
The article says even some obstetricians are promoting the trend. This comment from Dr. Jason James of Miami hits it right on: "One of the most easy, therapeautic interventions is to recommend a vacation. I think the effect of stress on our physiology is truly underestimated."
