Fertility & Family Planning

When planning to start a family, it is ideal to take a few months to build your and your partner's health prior to conception. Maternal health at conception and during pregnancy is a strong determinant of the health status of the future child. Regular exposure to tobacco, alcohol, recreational drugs, chronic medication use (e.g., oral contraceptive pill) can deplete essential nutrients.

Environmental toxins such as industrial chemicals, pesticides, food additives, preservatives, and heavy metals (e.g., lead, mercury) can bioaccumulate in the body, affecting the health of various organs (such as the liver which can affect hormonal regulation).

Paternal health also plays a key role in a healthy pregnancy and baby. Research shows male smokers have lower sperm counts and higher sperm abnormalities, which can decrease fertility and increase miscarriages. Both Environmental and lifestyle factors can affect your fertility, your pregnancy and the health of your unborn child.
