There are many benefits to taking just a little time to look at your health and wellbeing before trying to conceive. This is true for couples trying to conceive naturally or by IVF.
I work with couples for 12 weeks before they start trying for a baby. Together we look at their diet and lifestyle and where necessary address any underlying health issues such as hormonal imbalance, nutrient deficiencies, environmental toxin exposure and stress.
Male health is often over looked in pre-conception care with the focus being on mum and her eggs. But research shows that the health of the father’s sperm is a major contributing factors to both the chances of conception and the overall health of the baby.
There is great value in taking just a few weeks to improve your health before you start to try and fall pregnant.
