Preconception & Infertility
If you are considering pregnancy, preparing your body nutritionally for conception is one of the most important things that can be done.
Your nutritional status prior to conceiving will have a lasting effect on your health and that of your child’s. Being properly nourished when becoming pregnant directly influences your child’s lifelong susceptibility to disease, and the function of their brain and organs. Your nutritional status even permanently influences their appetite, metabolism, intelligence and temperament.
All traditional cultures had sacred fertility foods that were given to women before conception. By providing your body with highly nourishing foods, and avoiding those that reduce fertility, you can increase your ease of conception and give your baby the healthiest start possible.
When to start?
Ideally 3-4 months of preparation is recommended. This is how long it takes for an egg to fully develop and mature. Even if you have less than 3-4 months, always start preparing your body as soon as possible. If you're able, beginning a full 12 months before you conceive allows sufficient time to cleanse and restore nutritional reserves.

For many women, becoming pregnant isn’t something that just happens whenever they are ready. After spending many years trying to avoid getting pregnant, it can be heartbreaking to realize that it is difficult to conceive when you actually start trying.
Infertility is on the rise and misinformed dietary choices are a major contributor to growing fertility problems. Proper, well-researched nutrition plays a significant role in helping frustrated couples increase their ability to conceive.
An effective nutrition program tailored specifically to you can be valuable before turning to assisted fertility treatments. For those using assisted fertility treatments, such as IUI & IVF, a personalized nutrition plan can play a key role in helping support the conception of a healthy baby.
