Fertility & Preconception Care
I am passionate about helping couples conceive the healthy baby of their dreams and am happy to say I’ve been able to help many couples achieve their dream of becoming parents or expanding their family. By working as your primary care provider or in collaboration with your fertility clinic, I will help ensure your fertility care plan includes a comprehensive assessment and individualized treatment plan to restore your optimal fertility potential.
Whether you’re planning for natural conception, IUI or IVF I am ready to help you prepare for a healthy pregnancy. My goal is to support as many families as I can in creating healthy babies, which starts in the preconception period. Epigenetic research shows that the health status of both parents, especially in the 3-4 months prior to conception, influences both their fertility and the health of their future offspring. That’s because the moment the sperm fertilizes the egg your child’s DNA health blueprint is already created, 50% coming from each parent. The DNA inside the egg and sperm is sensitive to the health status of the mother and father-to-be during the 3-4 months of development that these cells go through before conception.
Factors such as your stress levels, nutrition status, alcohol, caffeine and toxin exposure can all influence the integrity of the DNA in your developing egg and sperm. Healthy lifestyle choices, nutrition optimization, and treatment modalities such as acupuncture and herbal medicine can therefore go a long way towards both your chances of conceiving and your future child’s wellbeing. When you’re ready, I am happy to help teach you and your partner how to create a healthy lifestyle that will optimize your fertility and provide the best for your baby.
