Preconception care is one of the most loving and responsible choices you and your partner can make together, not only for you and your child’s health, but also for future generations.
What you do for a few months will have lifelong effects for you and your child. Addressing preconception and pregnancy health is the ultimate gift.
First of all we need to promote health by addressing factors that might affect fertility, such as stress, toxins, radiation, pollution, poor diet/nutrition, low immune system, drugs (caffeine, tobacco, alcohol), infections, and reproductive conditions (endometriosis, polycystic ovarian disease, etc.)
The preconception care should ideally begin at least 4 months prior to the conception attempts. This preparation is important as the eggs take 3 months to mature and sperm takes almost 4 months to generate. This means that the sperm that is being expelled now has been exposed to all the toxins over the past 4 months. Fertilisation with sperm and/or egg that have had toxic exposure increases the possibility of pregnancy loss and decreases the chances of a healthy baby.
Both partners need a strong nutritional base to work from, which will require a healthy, highly nutritious, whole-food diet as well as herbal and nutritional supplements. This will provide your bodies with the building blocks needed to produce healthy eggs and sperm in order to create a healthy baby.
Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of travelling.
