Everyone feels worried, sad or stressed at times. Very high levels of stress can affect your ability to conceive a baby.

There are many things you can do that can help.

Stress is the emotional, mental and physical strain that happens when something changes in the world around you.

It could be a new job, moving, loss of a family member or friend or a change in finances.
