Happier, healthier Dad = happy and healthy baby!

Men’s health is often overlooked when configuring fertility issues with your doctor. However, suboptimal male health can negatively impact the conception process. Supporting your health as a dad to be will not only made you feel great but will also play an important role in creating a healthy baby.

Along with smoking, alcohol consumption and environmental toxins – stress can actually have a lasting effect on your child from their development stage as it can alter sperm DNA.

Important supplements to take in the lead up to conception include:

  • antioxidants: zinc, selenium, and vitamins C and E
  • Folate
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
  • Omega-3s

Try to enjoy a Mediterranean diet whilst keeping stress to a minimum and indulging in a few exercise classes or two!

Taking charge of your emotional and physical health as a dad to be will benefit both you and the baby.
