How Functional Medicine can help you conceive a healthy baby

Preconception Care

Hormones are your body's chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues or organs. They work slowly and affect many areas of your health including gut health, fertility, energy, metabolism, libido, weight and mood. Preparing for pregnancy is essential to optimize your health, fertility and readiness to welcome a pregnancy and birth of your baby. The NIH has said that: ”taking steps to make sure you are healthy and avoiding exposure to harmful behaviors and toxins before you get pregnant can decrease the chances of problems during pregnancy and improve the health of your child.”

The Full Rundown On Preconception Care

Pregnancy support and pregnancy preparation is a community project just like it was in years gone by. Women were supported by midwives, doctors, family, therapists and mind-body healers during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Why not now? Think about engaging a team of people including your medical team, an acupuncturist with special knowledge in pregnancy preparation, nutrition support, health coaching and a functional medicine provider.

Your functional medicine provider will look at your health in a systems way that includes not only your physiology but also your emotional and spiritual health along with your partner’s health too. It is a real holistic approach to pregnancy preparation that can help you change your entire perspective on your own life and health.

  • Pregnancy support and pregnancy preparation should be considered a community project.
  • You are planning to grow a human being - the most important role ever - so having a roadmap is wise.
  • Having a holistic approach to pregnancy care can help you understand your own health better and is often the start of healthier living for both you and your partner.

The functional medicine approach to preconception care is about focusing on your health and your partner’s health so you can grow a healthy human being together. We recommend joining our program at least 6 months before you want to start “trying” for a family.
