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
- Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
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.
