At HealthWise Clinic we have over 30 years experience in the area of enhancing fertility and supporting healthy pregnancies, all with the good health of the parents and future baby at the forefront of our minds.
Physically preparing yourself for parenthood has a huge impact on the experience of conception, pregnancy and birth, both for parent and child. Every aspect of our reproductive system is affected by the environment in which we live - the food we eat, air we breathe, and thoughts coursing through our mind.
While there is often a strong focus on optimising female fertility, pre-conception care for both partners is the best way to enhance the health of parents and baby. Involving both partners in the preparation for pregnancy and birth also sets a wonderful precedent for equal involvement in the raising of a child.
Establishing a good routine - feeling healthy in mind and body, maintaining a good diet and regular exercise - will ensure your body is in the best possible condition to create a baby. It will also make the entire process (from conception to birth) a much easier experience. Certain nutrients, such as folate and zinc, are particularly important during pregnancy and supplementation is often recommended. Herbal medicines and regular acupuncture can also be used to prepare the body for conception, as well as support a healthy pregnancy.
