Preconception Care

What you can do before you get pregnant

Preconception health or preparing your body for conception, is a super important step that is often overlooked.  The truth is, the more you do to maximize your health before you get pregnant, the more you will be doing to ensure a smooth road to conception, an easy pregnancy and a healthy baby.  Fortunately, making small changes can have a big impact.

I design step by step protocols specifically for you.  They include acupuncture treatments along with one or more of the following components:

    • Chinese Herbal Remedies
    • Western Supplementation
    • Diet/Lifestyle Changes

Ideally, I like to get my patients started on a preconception health protocol three months before trying to conceive.  That way we have the best chance of optimizing your health and enhancing your fertility!

If three months sounds like too much time, don’t worry.  I’ll put together a safe, effective plan that works for you.  Every little bit helps!

Women who complete the three month preconception program can expect:

    • Faster conception rates
    • Decreased chance of miscarriage
    • Less morning sickness & fatigue during pregnancy
    • Little to no menstrual symptoms (cramps, PMS, etc.)
    • Increased energy
    • Better digestion
    • Improved sleep
    • Decreased stress & anxiety

If you are planning on getting pregnant and want to do everything you can to improve your health and increase your chances of getting pregnant and having a healthy baby, this is the place to start.
