Grace Dugdale Fertility Programme: Balance Fertility

Often, when we experience fertility problems, there are underlying biological factors that contribute to our difficulty conceiving, aside from known medical problems. Sub-fertility can be a protective mechanism by the body to prevent conception when conditions are not ideal. If we're working too hard, are stressed or under- or over-weight, for instance.

We offer a comprehensive preconception care and fertility programme that assesses your overall health to look at what might be preventing you from conceiving. It includes a series of diagnostic tests to assess, amongst other things, your nutritional status, and whether things like underlying inflammation in the body may hinder your chances of getting pregnant.

You will gain a personalised programme based on your test results to correct any underlying biological issues and boost your health and well-being before you conceive. This not only gives you the best chance of conception, it also means the health of your pregnancy and baby will be optimised.

Since one in three cases of unexplained infertility is due to issues affecting the father, and sperm health is known to contribute to the health of the child, we encourage the father-to-be to enrol in the programme too.

This will give you confidence that you are giving yourself the best possible chance of conceiving and ensuring the future health of your child

We look forward to helping you achieve optimal health for your best chance of a successful pregnancy and healthy baby.
