A. Pre-Conception Management

A. Pre-conception Management
Planning a pregnancy and becoming pregnant is an exciting and busy time for prospective parents. Along with the plans and dreams they hold for the future, parents must start thinking about a range of dietary and health issues to help give themselves, and their baby, the best start possible. Preconception Management offers support to couples who simply want their child to have the best start to fife.

Both the ovum and the sperm take approx up to 3 months to mature so a good time to start Preconception Management is 3-4 months prior to wanting to become pregnant.

Here's a typical check list for consideration during this period

Heritage check
Have either of your parents or siblings suffered from fertility and/or reproductive problems?

Health check
Do you or have you experienced painful periods, abnormal bleeding, very long or short cycles, endometriosis or other menstrual problems?
What health issues have either partner suffered.

Pap smear check
To test for the presence of abnormal cells in the cervix.

Sperm quality check
For count, morphology and motility.

Immunity check
Are you frequently getting colds, suffer from respiratory affectations, asthma or allergies? If so you may need an immunity boost.

Contraception check
Have you been on the Birth Control Pill ("the Pill") or other form of hormonal contraception and if so for how long?
The Pill contains artificial hormones which inhibit ovulation and make the body unfriendly to pregnancy. If you have been "off" the pill for less than 12 month a hormonal detoxification is essential.

Toxin Detox check
One of the two main problems associated with infertility has been shown to relate to the retention of toxins within the cellular structure of the body. A spring clean and clean out of cellular debris will greatly enhance energy resources to more efficiently support the mitochondrial function and thus optimise sperm and egg development. 

Supplementation check
The second great problem affecting fertility is that of nutrient deficiency. It has been shown that prenatal multivitamin and mineral supplements can reduce the incidence of pre-term delivery, low birth weight, infant morbidity and mortality, while antioxidant vitamin supplementation has been demonstrated to decrease the incidence of pre-eclampsia.

Diet check
Do you maintain a healthy diet to help balance hormones and increase sperm quality. In general this means consuming more fibre, fruit, omega 3 oil, and fresh vegetables whilst at the same time minimising fat (particularly saturated fats), salt, sugar and processed carbohydrates intake.

The Western diet is generally lacking in essential nutrients. When this is combined with a
modern preference for prepackaged, processed and chemical laden products there is a gradual and detrimental decline in overall health, including reproductive health. It is also virtually impossible to receive the level of nutrients one needs from diet alone, even if your food is organic and nutritious.

Water check
The body is 60% water and an intake of 6-8 glasses a day is essential to maintain hydration and assist with detoxification.

Exercise check
Select a few of your favourite activities eg: walking, swimming, cycling, gardening, dancing etc to help tone your body and increase circulation. However a note of caution. Don't overexcercise. Too much can be dettrimental.

Lifestyle check
Stop or reduce cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine and recreational drugs babies whose parents smoke
are more likely to have a low birth weight and alcohol consumption has been shown to reduce sperm quality

Liveweight check
Several studies show the significance of Body Mass Index (BMI) and its relationship to successful fertilisation and subsequent pregnancy. If you are significantly over or under weight now is the time to start the correction.

Sleep check
A sound, relaxed and refreshing night's sleep is the most important requirement for a stress free and active tomorrow.

Stress check
Although it is not possible to live without stress it is important that it is managaed feectively. Managing stress is all about taking charge of your thoughts, your emotions, your schedule, your environment, and the way you deal with problems. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun ...plus the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on.

Dental check
Poor oral health is as bad for fertility as obesity significantly delaying conception.I n a Swedish trial women with gum disease took over seven months longer to conceive.
Periodontal disease (gum inflammation) has already been linked with heart disease, type 2 diabetes and miscarriage, plus poor sperm quality in men. In a recent Australian study which involved over 3,500 women, those with gum disease had raised blood levels of markers for inflammation.

Lunar check
The word "menstruation" itself is etymologically related to the "moon" with the terms "menstruation" and "menses" being derived from the Latin mensis for month which in turn relates to the Greek mene (moon). The length if the lunar cycle is 29.5 days the same as the average menstrual cycle. Unquestionably maximum endocrine stimulation takes place when human and cosmic biorhythms are synchronized. For example it has been observed that women in traditional societies ovulated with the full moon and menstruated with the new moon, A similar observation is that of women living together in groups (ie such as in a religious order) tend to menstruate together as a group in line with cosmic forces.  Men are influenced too. A British study found that men's sperm counts significantly increasedin in line with lunar forces.

Hygiene check
The maintenance of a strict domestic hygiene protocol for the avoidance of infection is a prerequisite for successful conception, pregnancy and birthing.

  • 1. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and hot water and dry them before handling food and after handling raw meat, going to the toilet, blowing your nose or touching animals (including pets).
  • 2. Wash worktops before and after preparing food, particularly after they've been touched by raw meat, including poultry or raw eggs.
  • 3. Wash dishcloths and tea towels regularly and let them dry before you use them again. Dirty, damp cloths are the perfect place for bacteria to breed.
  • 4. Use separate chopping boards for raw meat and for ready-to-eat food. Raw meat contains harmful bacteria that can spread very easily to anything it touches, including other foods, worktops, chopping boards and knives.
  • 5. It's especially important to keep raw meat away from ready-to-eat foods such as salad, fruit and bread. This is because these foods won't be cooked before you eat them, so any bacteria that get on to the foods won't be killed.
  • 6. Always cover raw meat and store it on the bottom shelf of the fridge where it can't touch other foods or drip on to them.
  • 7. Cook food thoroughly and check that it's piping hot all the way through. Make sure poultry, pork, burgers, sausages and kebabs are cooked until steaming hot with no pink meat inside.
  • 8. Keep your fridge temperature between 0C and 5C. By keeping food cold, you stop food poisoning bugs growing.
  • 9. If you have cooked food that you're not going to eat straight away, cool it as quickly as possible (within 90 minutes) and store it in the fridge or freezer. Use any leftovers from the fridge within two days.
  • 10.Don't eat food that's past its 'use by' date. Use by dates are based on scientific teststhat show how quickly harmful bugs can develop in the food.
