Looking to have a family of your own? Here are some tips from the experts for women who are ready to have children and are hoping to get pregnant soon.

First, eat a healthy diet. It should be balanced with plenty of fruits and vegetables.

Take vitamins. There are some key nutrients that can help you conceive. You can start by taking prenatal vitamins and staying on them right through your pregnancy.

Be at a healthy weight. Women who are too heavy or too thin have a lower chance at conceiving.

Detox your body from toxins by cutting back on alcohol and caffeine and quit smoking.

Know your cycle. Women are most likely to get pregnant within a day or so from ovulating.

Don't stress. Being anxious can only hurt your chances of getting pregnant.
