These legumes have loaded with fantastic vitamins, minerals, and other fertility-boosting properties. They are high in folic acid which you need to consume in order to prevent the unborn baby from developing serious neural tube defects. They are rich in iron which you need to prevent anemia, and they are also rich in zinc which supports tissue development.

Mushrooms are important to add to your diet because they are high in vitamin D which you need to help absorb the calcium that you consume as well. You can also take vitamin D supplements that are from lichen sources if you are not keen on eating mushrooms.

6. Fruits

All fruits such as citrus fruits and berries are loaded with important vitamins such as Vitamin C to help boost your immune system. They are also rich in tissue-repairing antioxidants. That said, keep eating fruit during the time you are attempting to get pregnant, and during your pregnancy. You and your unborn baby need the nutrients!

And, keep in mind that you must take vegan prenatal supplements to ensure that you are getting all of the nutrients you need. Additionally, you will want to keep away from soy sources because that can create hormone imbalances. That is the last thing that you will want to see happen while you are attempting to get pregnant.

And, last but not least, keep your stress levels to a minimum and get plenty of sleep. That in itself will help increase your chances of getting pregnant. Good luck with it, and stay healthy and keep on chomping on the fertility boosting foods!
