Fertility Fitness

Overview

Today, one in six couples will have difficulty in conceiving and maintaining a pregnancy to full term. Our Fertility Fitness Program focuses on supporting couples who wish to reduce these risks and optimise their health prior to conceiving.

Recent studies have shown that pre-conception healthcare increases fertility and pregnancy health and provides your child with the building blocks essential for early childhood development.

There are many simple and natural treatments options that improve fertility and pregnancy outcomes that include; lifestyle factors, weight issues and nutritional deficiencies that are associated with poor fertility and pregnancy outcomes.

Our program addresses all these factors as well as providing our couples with a treatment plan that addresses their individual health requirements.

Preconception

One of the most important components of preconception health care is that both parents optimize their health and wellness prior to conceiving their child.

Factors such as poor diet and lifestyle habits, inadequate nutrient intake, stress, thyroid imbalance and toxins can impact on hormonal balance and cause decreased fertility in both men and women.

Today, it seems quite common for couples to encounter a problem with fertility and we are now seeing a dramatic increase in referrals to IVF practitioners, herbalists and acupuncturists.

Men's Health

Men's health is often overlooked in preconception care but has been shown to be a rising cause in 68% of infertility cases.

In Australia, it is estimated that 1 in 20 men have some kind of fertility problem due to poor sperm development.

A highly processed diet, emotional, physical or toxic stress as well as poor lifestyle factors can impact on the quality of sperm health and male fertility problems.

New Research

Research indicates that a preconception period that focuses on improving the health of both partners is optimal in achieving a healthy full term pregnancy and provides your new child with the building blocks essential to good health.

Preconception health care improves chromosome and mitochondria production in both egg and sperm related problems, as well as pregnancy health and has been shown to decrease allergies and developmental problems in your child's long term health outcome.
