Are you doing preconception care to prepare your body for a successful IVF transfer?

We talk a lot about preconception care.  At AIM Women’s Wellness Center, we are firm believers that taking the time before you start trying to conceive to get your body as healthy as possible has a HUGE impact on your chances of getting pregnant and having a healthy baby.

The ideal amount of time to spend on preconception care before you try to get pregnant is between 90 – 120 days. This is your window of opportunity to have an impact on the health of your eggs and ovaries (and his sperm too).

A lot of people don’t understand that if you are ovulating this cycle, your body started preparing that egg three months ago. What you do and what you eat during this time period has a direct influence on the health of that egg when it meets with the sperm.

Watch this episode of Tea with The Fertility Godmother below, where Denise shared three important tips to help you with Preconception Care before IVF.
