Course Description

Did you know that becoming a parent actually starts well before you even fall pregnant? What if I told you that the health of your child starts from the health of your egg and your partners sperm? The healthier these are, the better chance your child has to a healthier life. And this continues to be shaped during pregnancy where the mother’s health, nutrition and stress can all affect their child’s future health. This is something called epigenetics and has become a focus for why some people develop diseases and others don’t. And this is why preconception health and awareness is paramount.

By joining me on this course you will learn:

1. Women’s hormones and fertility: I want you to walk away with an understanding of what goes on during a menstrual cycle and what this might be saying about your own hormones. I will discuss reasons for hormonal abnormalities, including the role of the Hormonal Birth Control and how to come off this safely. We will then also spend some time going through how you can easily track ovulation – as this is not only a key part in fertility but also healthy menstrual cycles and healthy eggs.

2. Preconception health for men and women. I will talk mostly about what nutrients to focus on and why – with research and evidence to back these recommendations. I will then also touch on diet suggestions as well as lifestyle factors to consider.

This course is made for anyone looking to have children - whether it is your first, second or third child and whether you are looking at falling pregnant soon or just one day in the future. What you will learn on this course will not only improve your health and well-being but, most importantly, set up the foundation of your child's health.
