Maybe Baby Ovulation Kit
Price: $66.39
RRP: $98.21
Code: 461725
Maybe Baby is a mini microscope for determining a woman's fertile and infertile period.
  • Parts are numbered-making it easier for you to assemble and use correctly.
  • Instructions are easy to follow.
  • maybe baby is guaranteed under conditional warranty.

The mini-microscope maybe Baby allows an exact determination of the fertile period for predicting conception easily and quickly by detection of the oestrogen level in saliva.

The so called "fern-phenomenon" was discovered in 1957 by Italian doctors Andreoli and Della Porta at the university of Torino. These physicians discovered that the level of the sex hormone oestrogen could be detected through visual observation of a dried saliva sample on a microscope slide. At high levels such as those present during ovulation, the crystalised oestrogen exhibits a pattern resembling fern leaves.

maybe Baby is a precision instrument that contains a microscopic lens to examine a saliva sample under illumination from an LED light source. When oestrogen is present, a fern leaf pattern is observed through the maybe Baby viewfinder.


For best results maybe Babyshould be used immediately after waking and before eating, drinking, smoking or brushing of the teeth. Before use, clean the internal glass surface of the viewfinder (2.2) with a lint free cloth. Apply saliva on the carefully cleaned internal glass surface. Make sure there are no bubbles. After the saliva has dried (allow 5 to 10 minutes) observe the sample through the mini-microscope viewfinder (2). A pattern will appear to determine the fertile or infertile period of the menstrual cycle.

Use maybe Baby to:

  • Determine the optimal time (4 days before and 2 days after ovulation) for a wanted pregnancy. At this time, the fern leaf structure should clearly appear.
  • Determine the optimal time *time of ovulation) for a wanted pregnancy in case of secondary sterility. On the day of ovulation the fern leaf structure should appear very clearly.
  • Influence the sex of the child with some reliability. Sperm, which determines male or female sex, have a different life time and speed movement. Therefore the probability of a female child is higher in the case of sexual intercourse before ovulation (when the fern leaf structure is partially developed). In the case of conception during ovulation (when fern leaf structure is fully developed) the parents may more likely look forward to a boy.
Infections of oral and pharyngeal cavity may lead to inaccurate results. The internal glass of the viewfinder (2.2) must be carefully cleaned before a test is undertaken. This should be checked before applying saliva. For hygienic reasons maybe baby should be used only by one individual. The mini-microscope must be protected from dust, heat and moisture.

Modification of the fern leaf structure can occur:

  • After giving birth, during and after breast feeding
  • After discontinuing intake of oralcontraceptives
  •  During use of T-copper coils
  • With illnesses and intake of substances modifying the mucus structure
  • During intake of expectorant products
  • After consumption of alcohol, tobacco, toothpaste or mouthwash

The distributor is not responsible nor liable for wrong use and incorrect interpretation of the results.

maybe Baby  is to be used only as an aid in family planning and not as a form of contraception.

maybe Baby  has been tested in prominent Medical Institutions in Europe for reliability.

maybe Baby is listed and approved under TGA for sale in Australia.
