Exposure to toxins can be a common but unnecessary occurrence. Avoiding toxins during preconception, pregnancy and after birth is an important consideration in order to protect yourself and your child from health disorders or imbalances, and increase your ability to conceive.
June is LGBTQ Pride Month! Blue Ova joins the LGBTQ community in celebrating gay pride in San Francisco and throughout the country. We love supporting LGBTQ families on their family building journeys.

Congee (also known as jook) is a term that means “rice water.” It is a simple method of overcooking grains into a creamy rice porridge. It is an excellent remedy for strengthening digestion, improves overall metabolism, removing excess fluids and warming the digestive organs. Other ingredients can be added to create delicious and nutritious meals.
Bone broth has been used for centuries in many traditional cultures as a healing, and fertility-enhancing food. Drinking a cup of bone broth daily will have a tremendous impact on your fertility, pregnancy and postnatal health.
When you cook down the bones of an animal into a broth, the bone marrow and its nutrients—namely fat, protein and trace minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon and sulfur—seep out into the broth making it a rich, nutrient dense, fertility boosting concoction. These nutrients are vital for creating healthy new life.

On this #GivingTuesday, we are excited to share the news of our partnership with the Homeless Prenatal Program.
At Blue Ova Health, we believe every women and child should have access to prenatal care from the first trimester, for the health and well-being of the mother and child.
We had a chance to tour the Homeless Prenatal Program's impressive facilities a few days ago, and met some of their incredible employees (over half of whom are former clients!), families and children. HPP’s mission, services and results completely blew us away.
