Acupuncture for Preconception Planning
Did you know that it takes approximately 120 days for an egg and 90 days for sperm to develop to full maturity? If you are trying to conceive now, you are using eggs and sperm that have been created 3-4 months ago – how was your health then?
Preconception planning is an important step that is often overlooked. The aim of Chinese Medicine pre-conception care is to promote optimal gynecological health in preparation for pregnancy. It is designed to get a woman’s body in the best possible position to become pregnant, stay pregnant and nourish a baby for the entire pregnancy and beyond.
