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. Preconception care is one of the best ways to support the likelihood of pregnancy, while also offering children and families the best possible chance for a healthy future.
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.
