WHAT IS IT?
We created our very own holistic preconception care programme to assess and adjust your health and wellbeing and create optimal conditions for a healthy conception.
This programme will not only benefit your fertility, it has the potential to impact your overall health, with benefits lasting well beyond this phase of your life.
The ideal period of time to get your body ready for pregnancy is at least 3 months. This is the time it takes for sperm and eggs to develop and mature and for you to get the benefits of all the health and lifestyle adjustments you will be making during this time. to have the best quality of egg and sperm.
Couples who want to enhance their health and wellbeing in order to increase their chances of a healthy conception, a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

"My partner and I learned a lot during this programme. We got a better appreciation of what we were putting into our bodies and why it mattered. This includes both eating and hygiene products. It also got us to think deeply about why we were embarking on this journey of having a baby and challenging pre-conceived ideas."
"I’m really happy with this programme. I think the practitioners work really well together and it was easy to talk to them all. I’m less stressed, I feel better in my body and I understand it better. I managed to change my routines to make them more supportive as I try to conceive. The extra resources provided are extremely useful and easy to implement."
