Natural Fertility & Pregnancy

What Is Preconception Health Care?

couple2With fertility rates declining in the western world & intervention from IVF, Preconception Health Care (PCHC) or Natural Fertility assists couples to conceive & birth a happy health baby.

As ovum take up to 4 months to mature (Sperm takes about 80 days) PCHC occurs for both Mum & Dad during the 120 days prior to conception. This creates optimum general & reproductive health for both parents producing a healthy egg & sperm, a strong conception & a nurturing environment within the uterus (womb).

sperm5The Foresight Study, the association for promotion of Preconception Health Care in UK, shows that PCHC is extremely important in assisting infertile couples to conceive. 1,061 couples followed a specific program of natural health care for 4 months before conception. This led to a 79% conception rate & birth of a healthy baby within 2 years. This is double the conception rate for those couples on IVF!

Your Commitment To Your Babies Health & Future!

fertility1Did you know that when you commit to PCHC you help not only your baby but your grand kids also to have fantastic health, for a life time!!

Epigenetic, the science of how our genes are expressed in our body, shows that PCHC creates a lifetime of vitality for the health of 2 generations of your children. In a world that is increasingly toxic PCHC clearly demonstrates how important it is to be really healthy before you conceive.

Finally we wish you all the best in making this choice for you & your family’s health. If there are any further questions, please feel very welcome to call us.

Best regards & many blessings for your new family

Testimonials

Before we met Annie we had been trying to conceive for almost 18 months. During that time we had 2 miscarriages. Meeting Annie not only filled us with confidence, but we followed her program & advice & fell pregnant about 6 weeks later. Thank you Annie for having such an impact on our lives

Simon & Amanda Bell Parents of Lily-Beth Bell

Thanks Annie for your professional support in helping us to conceive. We now have a healthy little baby boy. Without your encouragement & monthly consultations we never would have been able to do it!

God bless you!

PCHC benefits 3 generations of the offspring

When both of you commit to this 4+ months you are contributing to the health of not only your child but your grandchildren also!

PCHC is based on the Science of Epigenetics

It allows for the presence of all the factors required for fertility & for the creation of a healthy foetus. It also enforces the absence of all factors detrimental to fertility. PCHC aims for optimum general & reproductive health of egg, sperm & the nurturing environment of the uterus.

The preconception period is a minimum of 4 months. The instant that the sperm & the ovum combine, an irreversible genetic code is formed for future development of your baby. The health of your ovum (egg) & sperm reflect the health / toxicity of the environment in which they grow.

Why 4+ months of PCHC

The 4 months is determined by the ‘maturity’ period of the ovum. This is a biological fact & not a guess-timate! We require a minimum of this time to ensure that you have the best possible outcome for a healthy conception & baby’s robust health.

Some couples take longer to conceive. (There are never any fully guaranteed time frames in PCHC). So the time for these couples depends on their joint past health history of infertility, general health & full commitment & application to their PCHC program.

Taking the time to produce a super sperm & a super ovum will allow for you to have a super conception!

The Woman

The egg (oocyte) development takes approximately 120 days to mature. During this time it is vulnerable to toxic exposure, stress & nutrient deficiency. A woman’s general health, well-being vitality & happiness all deeply affect her ability to conceive & carry her baby to full term. PCHC is essential for you to experience optimum health, the joy of a healthy strong conception & a healthy pregnancy

The Man

Sperm is one of the smallest cells in the human body. It is remarkably vulnerable to environmental stress & toxins. Sperm development takes over 80 days to maturity. Illness, toxicity, trauma, stress & poor nutrition will affect mature sperm regardless of a man’s health at the time of medical examination.

Male infertility can also be the result of abnormal semen parameters. Semen is affected by age, toxicity, oxidative damage to the sperm, radiation exposure, poor to low nutritional status, social toxins & life style choices.

Miscarriage rates have been shown (Fertility Study Karolina, Stockholm) to be linked to the health & morphology of the sperm. This study showed that 50% of all miscarriage were due to male DNA fragmentation rates & other fertility issues.

Do we both have to do PCHC?

Absolutely! The health of both the sperm & the ovum is VITAL to your best possible outcome!

This is less than 1 cycle of IVF ($3,500-$4000)!

How many PCHC consultations will we require

Initially you will be attending our clinic (or phoning us through Skype) for 4, fortnightly consultations. This covers the time needed for the intensive research, development & implementation of your program

After this your consultations will be monthly until you conceive (& during your pregnancy). However many couples feel the need to have more closely spaced & regular appointments with us to ensure that they are on track with all aspects of their PCHC program
