Preconception support is the treatment given with a goal of preparing the mind and body for conception of a baby. For women preconception support is also about preparing the body for pregnancy. This treatment can be utilized by individuals and couples who
- Are planning to start trying to conceive in the near future
- Have been trying to conceive unsuccessfully
- Are planning to start IVF or assisted reproductive service
Preparing for conception:
Preparing for conception means different things to different people. If you are already living a healthy balanced lifestyle it might mean few changes need to be made. If your health has not been a priority for you then it may be time to make some bigger adjustments. We want to help you conceive a healthy baby but equally we want to help and encourage you to live your best life. We want you to be as healthy as you can be. During your treatment we will offer lifestyle and nutritional advice that is appropriate for you and your circumstances. It takes time for changes to happen in the body and mind so at Hatch Therapies ideally we recommend a minimum of 3-6 months preconception care.
Promoting a natural menstrual cycle:
For women preconception support will often involve treatment to promote a healthy monthly menstrual cycle. The female menstrual cycle is a fascinating and complex thing. Each month from puberty to menopause the body prepares for the opportunity to conceive a child. To be effective a sequence of specific events occur with accuracy. When this natural sequence is disturbed the cycle doesn’t flow smoothly and symptoms emerge alerting us to the imbalance. At Hatch Therapies when providing preconception support or fertility treatment our goal is to promote a healthy natural menstrual cycle. We aim to reduce the occurrence of things like period pain, delayed ovulation, irregular cycle length and premenstrual tension.
