East West Fertility offers a Pre-Conception Care program based on Chinese medicine principles and treatment strategies, nutritional requirements and current Chinese medicine and biomedical research.
Pre-Conception Care is a way to prepare for a healthy conception and baby. It can be compared to cultivating a field prior to planting the seeds to ensure optimal growth. We now know that healthy couples make healthy eggs and sperm, which ultimately leads to healthy babies.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are an effective and safe treatment method that allows the body to settle into a natural fertility rhythm and creates the best environment to nurture a pregnancy. Chinese medicine does this by letting the body correct any imbalance and promoting reproductive and general health.
Science has shown that both partners share equal responsibility for producing healthy conceptions, so Pre-Conception Care is a conscious choice each partner makes to invest in the quality of his/her sperm and eggs to produce the healthiest conceptions and babies possible. The proven benefits of embarking on a Pre-Conception Care program for a few months to prepare for pregnancy include:
- improving fertility
- improving egg and sperm quality
- reducing the risk of miscarriage
It takes time for eggs and sperm to mature, so it is necessary to follow the program for a minimum of four (4) months.
Other proven therapies we use as part of the Pre-Conception Care program are detoxification programs, nutritional supplements, dietary modifications and weight loss programs.
