One high level theme of questions I’m most frequently asked via email and my Facebook page, is which are the best crystals to support either fertility, pregnancy and/or miscarriage.
Obviously these can be very sensitive subjects for the ladies involved – and I’m not a medical practitioner, so I can’t give medical advice. What I can do though, is offer lists of crystals below, based on my research using The Crystal Bible, The Book of Stones and feedback from my clients, as references for specific crystals that are said to assist in each situation.
Pretty much all of these crystals that assist fertility and pregnancy have links to the sacral chakra, the energy centre which governs the reproductive system in both men and women. If you are having difficulty conceiving, as well as taking all of the physical tests available, you might like to consider having some sort of energy work done on your sacral chakra to clear any energetic blocks that may be causing issues.
