Natural Conception Planning

When couples are planning their family, they need to also consider conception planning from a health standpoint. This time in preparation for a child can bring the family together and educate the couple in a wellness based model. Since our environment dictates our level of health and wellness, preparing the vessel promotes a healthy pregnancy.This concept can be likened to gardening. In the spring, a garden’s soil is enriched and cared for prior to planting the seeds. This soil preparation enhances the yield of a healthy crop. In much the same way does a couple’s preparation for conception ease the pregnancy and set the stage for a healthy baby and family. With today’s environment under duress, this vital care for optimal health is ideal for all couples, not just for those having fertility concerns.

For those couples having fertility issues, working on enhancing both of their health parameters is essential. The man’s health is always considered in the equation. Reproductive specialists look to make sure there are not any outright imbalances causing the couple difficulty in conceiving. It is also important to look at why these imbalances are present in the body. By supporting the organs, we can naturally bring the body back into its state of balance and enhance the likelihood of conception. Essentially, a woman’s body will wait to conceive until the body’s health is at its best.Following the trend that couples are planning to have children later in life, it is important to look at achieving wellness prior to conception. With age, there is an accumulation of toxins from the environment and a reduction in strength of our organs. A cleanse may be appropriate for the couple to reduce the body’s burden of chemicals and to reduce the chemicals that can be passed onto the baby. As well, a woman needs to address her nutrition and strengthen her organs involved in carrying a baby, like the blood, adrenals and liver. As a baby will gather what it needs during the pregnancy, the reserves gained from this preconception work will support the mother through the pregnancy and beyond.

It’s exciting to work with couples during this preconception period. Naturopathic doctors support the couple’s health through nutrition, homeopathy, physical medicine and botanical medicine. What couples learn about their bodies in this wellness based model of medicine can be extended into their health prevention plan as their family grows.
