Supplements for Pregnancy

Preconception and Pregnancy: a brief note

Preconception is arguably the most important part of the process, as it is the time during which the mother and father-to-be prepare both their bodies and minds for the forthcoming pregnancy, so that they can be as healthy and ready as possible for the new life.

To give a mother the best chance of producing a healthy baby, both mother and father will need to prepare their bodies as far in advance as possible - ideally starting 6 months before the planned conception, but at least 3 months before. It is over this time span that both the sperm and ova complete their maturation process. Both are extremely vulnerable to nutritional deficiencies and toxins over this period.

Therefore, as well as improving nutritional intake, it is also important to reduce any toxic load in the body; this is best done in the first 3 months of preconception.

The second three months are a time for maintaining good health and building up the nutritional reserves in the body, in particular for the mother-to-be to be able to support the new life.
