Natural Fertility and Preconception Care

Natural fertility and Preconception Care

Natural fertility is about achieving optimal health and wellbeing by finding and restoring balance for a successful conception and a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

The goal is to improve the chances of conceiving, maintaining and giving birth to a healthy baby.

Consideration of hormonal levels, nutritional status and ovulatory cycle patterns involving oestrogen, progesterone and cortisol is essential prior to conception.

Lifestyle factors, detoxification, stress management, weight management and nutritional support are all key areas to address in natural fertility management.

Preconception care involves identifying and conditions that might affect your chances of conceiving and/or the health of you and your baby later, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

It also involves steps you can take to reduce the risk of birth defects and other problems. For example, women should take folic acid supplements prior to and after conception to prevent neural tube defects.

Preconception care involves:

  • Optimal nutrition
  • Removal of toxic elements (smoking, cleaning agents, alcohol etc)
  • Adequate rest and sleep
  • Regular exercise
  • Reducing stress

Endometriosis

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition in which endometrium, the tissue that normally lines the womb (uterus), grows outside the uterus. Endometriosis may cause fibrous scar tissue to form on the uterus. It can also affect the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the bowel. Endometriosis may cause very painful periods and reduce fertility or cause infertility. It is thought to affect one in ten women at some point during their menstruating years.

Some important considerations

Advice Explanation
Iron Iron is important for foetal development and also the prevention of anaemia in the mother. Iron can also reduce the risk of preterm birth and low birth weight.
Vitamine D Deficiency of vitamin D is associated with and increased risk of gestational diabetes mellitus.
Essential Fatty Acids An optimal balance of essential fatty acids is critical for a healthy pregnancy and neurological development of the foetus.
Toxic Metal Accumulation Evidence shows that chronic toxic element exposure may contribute to infertility and impair neurological development and function. A detoxification program may be needed to remove these toxins.
Adrenal Hormones Reducing stress is crucial in natural fertility management. Stress may have a major impact on fertility. A management plan can be created to reduce or manage stress.
Iodine Increased iodine is essential for the increased thyroid hormone production during pregnancy. Iodine deficiency may affect both the mother and the foetus, while severe deficiency is associated with mental impairment and retardation.
Thyroid Hormones The thyroid gland secretes hermones that regulate metabolism. Disruptions can affect metabolism, resulting in fatigue, hair loss, dry skin, weight gain or loss, changes in menses, high blood pressure and / or heart problems.
Healthy Weight Management Maternal obesity increases the risk of infertility and miscarriage.
Exercise - Physical Activity The protective effect of physical activity-enhances placental growth and vascularity, decreases oxidative stress and reduces inflammation. The most active women have the lowest prevalence of obesity and diabetes in both mother and child.
Healthy Sperm The male factor is responsible in half of the cases of infertility, making compromised sperm function the largest single, defined cause of human infertility. Among other factors, recent studies show that oxidative stress plays a major role in the aetiology of this condition. Oxidative stress not only disrupts the fertilising potential of human sperm but also the ability of these cells to create a normal healthy embryo. This is further associated with an increased risk of miscarriage and health issues in the offspring.
Environmental Factors Toxins such as glues, volatile organic solvents or silicones, physical agents, chemical dusts, and pesticides have been linked to infertility. Tobacco smokers are 60% more likely to be infertile than non-smokers. Smoking reduces the chances of IVF producing a live birth by 34% and increases the risk of an IVF pregnancy miscarrying by 30%.
