Sound a bit far fetched? Well the supposed link between fertility and astrology has long been established. The ancient Greeks believed Venus and Jupiter were responsible for how many children a person would have, and when they would have them, and ancient astrologers believed a woman could only conceive when the moon was in a certain alignment to the planets on the day she was born.
It sounds wacky, but American IVF clinic Shady Grove fertility have hired fertility astrologer Nicola Smut to see if she can help their clients conceive.

So opinion is divided on the effectiveness of this fertility method. None of the mums I spoke to had tried this method to conceive, (most having not even heard of it!), so the conventional approach is clearly the most tried and trusted still. If you’re interested in astrology and you’ve exhausted other methods without success, you might enjoy seeing if this method works for you, but remember that the effectiveness are disputed, and astro-fertillity shouldn’t be used as an alternative for consulting a doctor for fertility problems. If you’ve tried astro-fertility let us know if it worked for you!
