Pre-conception
Preparation

How much time is taken to consider preparing for the most important event of our lives

Optimising Fertility

  • Have you been trying to conceive for a few years?

  • Do you have an irregular menstrual cycle?

  • Do you have a reproductive condition such as endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids?

  • Are you thinking about having a baby and want to be in the best possible health?

 

Preconception health care aims to improve and maximise the health of parents and child.  Our modern lifestyles have been shown to greatly affect our health and fertility. Using natural fertility methods gets your body into the optimum state to conceive, resulting in an increased chance for a healthy pregnancy and baby with a high success rate of overcoming fertility issues .

Through the use of herbal medicine, nutrition, and a personalised treatment plan we can address reproductive health concerns, ensure adequate nutrition and get the parents mind and body baby ready. 

Taking at least three months to prepare your body is the greatest gift you can give your child.

 

Why take this time? Sperm takes 70-90 days to fully mature and even though a woman is born with all her eggs, it takes 120 days for the egg to mature to ovulation. The health of your ovum (eggs) and sperm are a reflection of the health of your body at this time. Four out of ten pregnancies are unplanned and by the time the mother is aware of the pregnancy and decides to change her lifestyle the fetus has already undergone a phenomenal rate of growth.

Preconception care includes:

 

  • Detoxification – screening for heavy metals, gentle cleansing and reducing environmental factors that contribute to the toxic load

  • Adequate nutritional status – correcting nutritional deficiencies and enhancing nutrients that are most important for conception

  • Ensuring regular cycles and balanced hormones

  • Getting fertility fit, weight management

  • Lifestyle advice – stress reduction and positive mind-set

  • Fertility charting - learning to identify your fertile days and the optimum time to conceive

When should I start preconception care?

 

The minimum time for healthy preconception care is three months, six months is ideal and If you are thinking of conceiving a child in 2-3 years you can start preconception care now.
