Preconception Care

A friend of mine shared this resource with me. It looks like a really neat program!!!!

The Institute for Progressive Medicine in Irvine, California offers their Preconception Care program to couples who are trying to become pregnant. They are a medical clinic that is known for using natural alternative therapies in conjunction with more traditional practices.

Preconception Care uses a multifaceted approach to increase the success of your fertility plan. They encourage folks to use their program in addition to working with your fertility doctor.

Some of the componets of the program are: acupuncture, herbal medicines, cycle charting, and educational classes on diet, lifestyle and environmental toxins. Preconception Care is modeled after an Australian program that focused on using holistic approaches to achieve fertility.

Their website says that the program has been found to increase sperm count and sperm and/or egg quality. They also state that research on programs such as these are found to lower the mother’s chances of miscarriage and having a baby of low birth weight.
