You want to do the best to get pregnant and have a healthy baby. But the more you read, the more you get confused.
There are many false and unsupported beliefs about fertility and pregnancy, some are myths and others are presumptions. But what is the difference between a myth and a presumption? Both are beliefs, but a myth is a belief that is proven to be untrue because there is evidence to the contrary, while a presumption is a belief that has not been found to be true.
- A myth is a belief that persists despite evidence to the contrary
- A presumption is a belief that exists without any supporting scientific evidence
