Conception is the beginning, the act of giving form to new life, to a person. This miraculous act of creation lays the foundation for pregnancy, the birth experience and the new baby’s quality of life.
Preconception Planning is often undervalued or overlooked unless a patient has difficulty conceiving, but the benefits go far beyond treating infertility. Numerous studies have shown that that if both parents improve their general health while avoiding common lifestyle factors and environmental hazards in the months preceding conception, they can greatly improve reproductive outcomes and avoid many complications during pregnancy that lead to medical interventions. Most important, by improving their own health, parents can improve the future health of their child and grandchild.
