Preconception Care

Preconception Care

Most couples wanting to become parents want not only the best possible chance of conceiving, but also to conceive a healthy child. Numerous factors can influence both of these, including the fertility levels of both partners as well as genetics and lifestyle choices. While you might have minimal control over genetics and fertility, you can however make the lifestyle changes needed to maximise your chances of creating and giving birth to a healthy baby. Discover how a preconception care program devised in conjunction with you by Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic can give you the best chance at a happy and healthy pregnancy.

What is Preconception Care?

Preconception care is all about examining the lifestyle factors that can impact the likelihood of your becoming pregnant. It gives you and your partner the opportunity to improve general health and wellness before you begin trying to conceive. As part of your preconception care, we will examine factors such as your general fitness, your health and wellness, and your lifestyle areas to determine where you are strongest and where you might need to improve in order to better your odds of conceiving.

Who Might be Best Helped by Preconception Care?

We might suggest you seek preconception care in Melbourne if you’re looking to fall pregnant and need trusted advice on:

  • What kind of impact health conditions can have on pregnancy
  • How to overcome existing troubles with trying to conceive
  • The likelihood of any genetic condition being passed down from mother to child and through subsequent generations.

Preconception care can also be useful for women who:

  • Have had trouble carrying a child to full term in the past
  • Have given birth to premature children or children with low birth weight
  • Are undergoing IVF or some other form of ovulation induction treatments
  • Are over 40 and looking to reduce the risk of health problems commonly associated with “geriatric” pregnancies

But above all, preconception care is best suited to any couple looking for their child to start out as healthy and happy as possible.

What Does Preconception Care Involve?

Preconception care can take on many different forms, as everybody’s preconception needs and health concerns are different. It is precisely for this reason that Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic’s preconception care in Melbourne is tailored to your particular needs. Common elements that are typically included and may feature in your program include:

  • Exercise
