Unable to conceive or are having a difficult pregnancy?

It is well known that alcohol and smoking have a detrimental effect on fertility. Sadly, few recognise that there are many dietary and lifestyle changes you can take to improve your chances of conceiving and having a healthy baby.

A recent study at the University of Surrey demonstrated this among several hundred would-be parents with a history of fertility problems. They were put on tailor-made pre-conceptual care programme, which focused on three aspects: diet, vitamin and mineral supplementation and avoidance of environmental toxins. A stunning 81% of those who took part went on to produce healthy babies. Foresight, the Association for the promotion of pre-conceptual care, also has similar fantastic success rates.
