WHAT IS PRECONCEPTION CARE?
Preconception care is the ultimate in preventative health care, as growing evidence indicates that the maternal health during preconception and pregnancy largely determines the health of the future child and adult. The male is just as important when it comes to preconception, since he provides 50% of the genetic material. We know that sperm health and adequate numbers are crucial for successful pregnancies, and that smoking, alcohol, poor diet and other lifestyle factors adversely affect sperm quality.
Preconception care is for couples who wish to give their child the best start in life. Studies have shown it can greatly improve the chance of a positive outcome for couples who have a history of infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth or prematurity. It can also benefit couples who are wishing to improve their chances of a healthy pregnancy through IVF, IUI or GIFT.
