Baby Surprises

Baby Surprises

We found some amazing baby facts that'll knock your booties off! Like, for example, the things you eat can determine the gender of your baby — it's true! A study from the Netherlands had participants consume green leafy vegetables, fruit, rice, and mineral supplements several weeks before trying to conceive in order to increase their blood levels of calcium and magnesium (study researchers hypothesized that consuming a diet rich in calcium and magnesium in the weeks before conception may result in having daughters). "We assessed the efficacy of a maternal diet low in sodium and potassium, high in calcium and magnesium, in combination with timing of intercourse well before ovulation as a method to improve the chances of conceiving a girl baby," researchers said. Some 32 couples completed the trial. To the researchers' surprise, a full 81% (26 mothers) delivered girls. Boy or girl, having a healthy baby is the hope and dream of many would-be parents who have trouble conceiving. However, we have received many testimonies over the years from infertile couples who were able to conceive once they adopted the principles of The Hallelujah Diet. It's little wonder because a plant-based diet is what the body — and baby, apparently — like best! And here's another surprise... stress can play a major role in your ability to conceive! Oxford University experts measured stress hormones in women planning a baby naturally and found the most stressed had a reduced chance of becoming pregnant. Women with the highest levels of alpha-amylase (an indicator of adrenalin levels) had about a 12% reduced chance of getting pregnant during their fertile days that month compared with those with the lowest levels of the marker. Dr Cecilia Pyper, of the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit at the University of Oxford, said, "The findings support the idea that couples should aim to stay as relaxed as they can about trying for a baby." We couldn't agree more! Stress has a significant affect on health, which is why Hallelujah Acres promotes relaxation and meditation on God's Word in addition to a plant-based diet, exercise, proper hydration, and plenty of sunshine.
