Preconception Care

A healthy baby is created from two healthy parents. Optimising yours and your partners’ health during preconception can significantly improve pregnancy outcomes including reducing the risk of miscarriage and premature birth; reducing the risk of complications during pregnancy and, most importantly, increasing the likelihood of delivering a thriving, healthy baby.

The UK based fertility specialist group Foresight have just recently released their 2002 – 2009 survey results. Of the 1,568 couples that undertook preconception care 81.9% went on to deliver healthy babies and only 4 miscarriages occurred. In contrast, the average miscarriage rate for couples without pre-conception care is 25%.

Your Program

Your preconception care program is tailored according to you and your partners needs. If there are any underlying conditions present that are impacting fertility these will be addressed. Such conditions may include:

  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Endometriosis, fibroids and PCOS
  • Recurrent miscarriage
  • Auto-immune illness
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Poor sperm quality including low sperm count, poor motility and poor morphology

In designing your individualised program we may employ in house and functional pathology testing and treatments may include naturopathy, acupuncture, nutrition, and dietary and lifestyle modifications.
