Nutritional requirements for conception and pregnancy are quite different to those for general health and weight management. There is a growing body of evidence showing the positive impact of the correct nutritional support pre-conception on both male and female fertility and the subsequent benefits for laying the foundation for a healthy pregnancy and baby.
There is much conflicting advice regarding diet and supplementation for optimum fertility support – our clinic will cut through this confusion and develop an individual and targeted nutritional plan specific to you.
Nutritional therapy is evidence-based, using the latest research into fertility available. The body is treated as a whole and this holistic approach may:
Support optimum egg and sperm health
Reduce the time it takes to conceive
Optimise the chances of conception
Reduce the risk of miscarriage
Support a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby
As part of your individual protocol, you will be provided with:
Nutritional guidelines for both pre-conception and pregnancy (these may change as you progress through your pregnancy)
Meal and snack ideas based on your food likes / dislikes and including foods which may support your fertility.
Tailored nutrition and lifestyle recommendations, including supplementation if deemed appropriate for you. Often, it can be just a few tweaks required here and there to diet and lifestyle habits but these tweaks can make all the difference.
Advice on the staging of follow up consultations
Whether you are currently considering a pregnancy, are receiving treatment to achieve a pregnancy (IUI, IVF, ICSI or undergoing Restorative Reproductive Medicine (RRM) practices) or are currently pregnant, nutritional therapy may support your body through all of the vital stages of childbirth from pre-conception to conception, pregnancy and the months immediately after.
