When friends Dr. Lara Oboler and Marjorie Goldner decided they wanted to journey into motherhood, the duo did not want to waste any time prepping for baby. After one month turned to two and then quickly to four, they started considering alternative ways to get pregnant. As the women struggled to conceive, they gave birth to the idea of PregPrep.

Here’s the general gist of what the founders and team of doctors who’ve worked with PregPrep have say about their product: It’s a natural physician-formulated pre-pregnancy kit that promotes fertility.

PregPrep’s Make That Baby kit (MTB) is based on three key medical principles that help promote optimal reproductive health and conception: the thinning of cervical mucus, the elimination of free radicals and the proper nutrition to support ovulation, conception and the overall wellness of reproductive health. It comes with a two-month supply of three natural, doctor-formulated products that target a woman’s most fertile days and provide support to help optimize her chances of pregnancy.

So, what’s included in the kit?

FertilPrep, VitaMelts, and Essential Balance Oil. The FertilPrep is a physician-formulated capsule that targets a woman’s five most fertile days (which are the five days leading up to ovulation) to help optimize fertility. It works to thin out cervical mucus, helping to transport the sperm to the egg, and contains N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), a naturally occurring substance found within our bodies. It also includes a variety of natural supplements like chaste berry extract and evening primrose oil, to help ensure hormone balance and support. The kit also comes with VitaMelts that focus on providing women with the essentials they need prior to pregnancy. PregPrep’s founders felt that that while traditional prenatal vitamins are used before, during and after pregnancy — they’re often too big and difficult to swallow. The PregPrep VitaMelt’s are designed with only the essentials that you’ll need before getting pregnant, so they’re smaller and easier to swallow. Added bonus? They’re made to melt on your tongue. They include Folic Acid, Vitamin D and B12.

Currently, the products have not been evaluated by the FDA. We haven’t tested the products out either, but it could help women who want to make a baby increase their odds. On their site, PregPrep women (and doctors) who’ve used and recommended the products absolutely rave about their experiences. You can buy the Make That Baby Kit for only $40 (with free shipping).

So, would you try PregPrep or any other fertility kit?
