Diet and Lifestyle Factors
Without a doubt nutrition plays and integral role for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Nutrients and antioxidants play an essential part in creating and maintaining healthy eggs and sperm. As part of your fertility investigations we look at your diet and recommend a healthy well-balanced diet, often with nutritional supplements to provide optimal fertility.
Factors such as, maintaining a healthy weight, reducing stress in our lives, smoking cessation, exercise and alcohol reduction all play a role in optimising fertility.
We encourage all our patients to look at acupuncture to assist them in their fertility journey. Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs and balancing the endocrine system, according to several studies and medical research.
