Conception Preparation

Conception preparation or preconception is the most important step when planning for a healthy pregnancy and baby.

Conception preparation or preconception is the most important step when planning for a healthy pregnancy and baby. This is the time when attention is given to the influence that genetic information has on the health of the future child.

Just as sports people need to prepare for an important sporting event, so too is it essential for prospective parents to optimise their wellbeing for the best possible chances of a healthy baby..

It is of the utmost importance that consideration be given to the wellbeing of the male partner prior to conception. Diet, lifestyle and environmental factors play an enormous role in the development of healthy, viable sperm.

Sperm is generated during the preconception period and is extremely vulnerable to physiological hazards and environmental toxins present during this time. It takes approximately 72-76 days (2-3 months) for sperm to develop, mature, be stored and ready for ejaculation. Hence, due regard should always be given to the influence this period of time has on the health of the embryo, foetus, baby and child.
