Mindful Preparation For Conception - A Holistic Approach

Would you like to learn about a more holistic, mindful approach to conception and pregnancy? Want to learn how specific foods may help to naturally boost fertility, and the key role nutrition plays in preconception? MyBirth and Virginia Fertility Associates have the answers.

Pregnancy is one of the greatest joys in life, and nutrition can play an important role in helping couples who are trying to conceive. In the informative session, learn about foods that play an important role in helping women (and men!) naturally boost their fertility for conception, how to optimize your fertility diet, and key tips for a nutrient-rich diet. We'll also sample a few recipes that have been carefully created for prenatal health and wellness and discuss the main nutrients in the recipes that support preconception.
We'll also touch on the potential benefits of:

  • complimentary wellness techniques, such as acupuncture and integrative medicine
  • mindfulness and restorative yoga
  • finding the fitness plan that's right for you
