The Bump Expert

Although an Internet search might take you to partridgeberry as a way to improve your odds of getting knocked up (along with the herbs red clover and life root), there’s really no good evidence that it aids fertility. The herb, which comes from a vine that grows in the woods mostly in the eastern United States, can even be potentially dangerous, because often other parts of the plant beyond the berry are used to create the supplement. Talk to your doctor before taking this or any other herbal supplements, so he can weigh in on whether or not your particular brand could be dangerous to you or your baby.
