FERTILITY ENHANCEMENT

This Treatment is an Add-On to the Naturopathic Services offered at LIVEWELL

FERTILITY ENHANCEMENT

The obvious goal of any fertility program is to achieve pregnancy and grow your family. The “Plus” of the Fertility Enhancement program includes the extensive before and after healthcare treatments to accompany your desired pregnancy. Your preconception health can help or hinder your chances of conception, your potential for miscarriage, and maintaining a trouble free pregnancy. Postpartum care continues to provide valuable support and natural treatment options to help the body recover physically, improve breastfeeding success and avoid postpartum depression.

Why is preconception care important?

Preconception care aims to optimize the nutritional status and health of both parents before they try to conceive. Preconception care can improve your chances of conceiving and giving birth to a healthy child. This includes couples with fertility problems, and specific pregnancy issues including recurrent miscarriages.
