For Him

Making babies is meant to be easy but unfortunately in many situations this isn’t the case.

Studies have shown that 30% of couples experiencing fertility issues are attributed to male reproductive problems.

Research also shows that postnatal support for fathers not only helps them cope with these challenges, but benefits their offspring in later life.

Whatever your needs may be – whether

  • Your partner is having difficulty becoming or staying pregnant
  • You would like be in the best possible health and to prepare for conception
  • Your sperm analyses show DNA fragmentation or your count, density or motility levels are low
  • You are experiencing reproductive issues such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, low libido or you have a varicocele
  • You and your partner are deciding on IVF/ART and would like to improve your sperm health as well as your chances of a successful ART outcome
  • You are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed and/or exhausted after the birth of your baby

Joanne at BabyCreate has the knowledge and experience to cater for all your needs.

Joanne will then prepare for your appointment by doing her ‘homework’ prior to your consultation, so that she is ready for you when you arrive. She prefers to devote your full consultation time to addressing your issues and tailoring an appropriate treatment strategy for you, rather than posing the basic questions.
