There is a misconception that it is only the female who should look after her diet prior to conception. This is untrue. It is equally important for the male to clean up his diet, as up to 40% of infertility issues may be related to the sperm. There are a number of vitamins and minerals that are essential for reproductive health. Something as simple as being deficient in one or more of these, could prevent you from becoming pregnant.
We are learning more about how our diet before and during pregnancy as well as during breastfeeding
can be hugely important to our child. The first 1,000 days — 270 days of pregnancy and first two years of a child’s life — has a profound impact on a child’s future health.
At Health & Nutrition, we offer support and advice to women prior, during and after pregnancy. Which foods you should avoid, which foods you need to increase as well as natural remedies for heartburn, morning sickness, weight gain, constipation, leg cramps, stretch marks and post-natal depression.
All consultations can be arranged to take place in my private practice in Johnstown, Kildare as well as over the phone or by Skype. I also offer a mobile service for people living in the Kildare area who are unable to travel to me but would like a personal consultation. There is an additional fee for this service.
