Naturally Nourishing Fertility Series Part 2
Nutrition and lifestyle factors play a critical role for both women and men in the 4 months prior to conceiving. During this timeframe, as eggs and sperm develop and mature, they are especially vulnerable to inadequate nutrition, environmental exposures and lifestyle factors. Not only does this reduce the chances of conceiving, it plays a role in the epigenetic programming that will affect the health of the baby and potentially future generations.
If you are working with patients who have age-related infertility, recurrent miscarriage, failed IVF cycles, or unexplained infertility, you don’t want to miss this webinar. With targeted nutrition and lifestyle recommendations, you can help individuals and couples break the painful cycle of infertility and also help influence the health of future generations!
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- The importance of preconception planning with targeted diet and lifestyle changes in the 4 months prior to conceiving can help improve fertility, prevent miscarriage and pregnancy complications
- The role of epigenetics in both fertility and pregnancy outcomes
- How to influence the proper development of egg and sperm with nutrition and lifestyle recommendations
- How to identify potential egg and sperm quality issues
- Interventions for women trying to conceive who are over 40 years old and/or with premature ovarian insufficiency
