Preconception Health care improves pregnancy outcomes

Did you know that appropriate preconception health care improves pregnancy outcomes?

 The combined evidence of many eminent researches shows that conditions such as subfertility, miscarriage, low birth weight, premature birth, malformation, breast-feeding difficulties, handicap, hyperactivity, learning problems, asthma, eczema and poor resistance to infection are often preventable. All that is needed is a little attention to the nutrients and toxins that go into your body prior to conception and during your pregnancy.

It makes sense when you consider that eggs take approximately 100 days to mature and sperm take up to 116 days to generate. During this time they both are vulnerable to toxicity and nutrient deficiency, hence the health of both parents for the 4 months prior to conception is extremely important.

But- this is not a new idea. The ancient Greeks and Romans knew that alcohol taken before and around the time of conception was damaging to the later development of the fetus. Many traditional societies fed special diets to their young women and men of child bearing age. Veterinarians, stock breeders and farmers all practice preconception health care.

Most couples prepare for their weddings, holidays, family gatherings, so why not prepare for the birth of your baby and ensure that all the building blocks necessary to create a healthy baby are present.

Preconception health care can avoid infertility, miscarriage, sick and deformed children. Additional treatments can also be employed for any underlying reproductive problems.

Common Fertility Issues & How We Can Help You

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

This is common in many women and can lead to infertility, weight problems, late onset diabetes. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is often accompanied by a tendency to produce too much androgens and to ovulate erratically.  Specific herbs and supplements along with nutritional advice can help you overcome this problem. Our treatment is directed at reducing the masculinising effects of the excess androgens, stimulating ovulation, and protecting the endometrium.


Endometriosis occurs when endometrial growths develop on the ovaries, the tubes, the outer wall of the uterus, the uterine or ovarian ligaments, the bowel, the ureters or the bladder. Women who develop endometriosis might do so because they have a relatively higher level of exposure to oestrogen than other women. The aims of the treatment are to improve relative oestrogen excess and immune system irregularities. Our naturopath can help devise a tailored health plan to help you overcome this …

Metrorrhagia (abnormal bleeding outside menses)

The bleeding commonly occurs at ovulation, although it may happen at any time during the cycle. Many conditions can cause metrorrhagia – hormonal factors are common, too high doses of OCP and IUD’s as are cervical lesions. The treatment is based on a multi-faceted approach, which aims to support the luteal phase of the cycle and treat stress where appropriate.

Menorrhagia (Excessive bleeding)

Heavy menstruation is related to prostaglandins imbalance, which causes reduced blood clotting, and dilated blood vessels. Prostaglandins imbalance may be caused by relative oestrogen excess and high intake of saturated fats. We use a variety of clinical assessments to evaluate the causes and the type of treatment that can be used to help you overcome this problem.
