The benefits of pre-conceptual care


If you visit your GP for advice to help you conceive you’re most likely to be told to avoid alcohol and smoking (sound advice), keep trying and come back if you are not successful. The next step is likely to be IVF or a similar assisted conception technique.-


It is well proven that alcohol and smoking have a detrimental effect on fertility, but there are many other nutritional steps you can take to improve your chances of conception and much research to prove it. Just one example is a study at the University of Surrey consisting of several hundred would-be parents with a history of fertility problems. They were put on tailor-made holistic pre-conceptual care programmes focussing principally on diet, vitamin and mineral supplementation and avoidance of environmental toxins. A stunning 81 % of those who took part went on to produce healthy babies.


It takes around 5 months for eggs and 3½ months for sperm to mature before being ready for release. So it makes good sense to start a pre-conception plan at least 4, ideally 6 months before trying to conceive. Not only can the right nutrition and lifestyle changes help natural conception, but in those cases where assisted conception is the only option, a good nutrition programme can enhance success rates.
