One of the things I love about naturopathic preconception care is that a couple can find pertinent information and support before trying to conceive in order to optimize health in preparation for conception.

Infertility now impacts 1 in 8 couples trying to conceive. Infertility is diagnosed when a couple has not achieved a pregnancy after one year of attempting to conceive or at six months if the couple is 35 or older. Waiting a whole year before receiving a diagnosis and care can lead to unnecessary stress, and concern. Naturopathic preconception care can reduce the lengthy waiting and naturopathic medicine helps couples who have already been struggling to have a baby for some time.
