About the project
Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health (MCWH) is working in partnership with Victorian Assisted Reproductive Treatment Authority (VARTA) to produce resources in six languages, to help more people access accurate and evidence-based information about getting pregnant.
Why multilingual information is important
There are a lot of myths about fertility and getting pregnant. When you live in Australia and English is not your first language, finding information you can trust can be even more complicated.
As well as opportunities, moving to a new country can lead to many pressures and questions that impact migrant women's decisions about when to have children, and how many children to have. Read on for information about fertility that you can trust.

Tips when you are trying to get pregnant
When you are trying to get pregnant, it can be difficult to know what advice to take. You may hear many different opinions and not all of them may be true.
Our videos, and factsheets are based on evidence you can trust. However, this information is not the same as professional medical advice. If you are worried, or want more information, see your doctor.
Five tips based on the evidence:
1. Think about timing - your age can matter so start planning early if possible
2. Watch your ovulation cycle - some times in the month are better to try to get pregnant
3. Keep a healthy weight - it increases your chances of getting pregnant
4. Take supplements - make sure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need
5. See your doctor - don't sit and worry, visit your doctor for more advice
