Statistically, one in five pregnancies end in miscarriage. You don’t have to be one of those statistics.
Women are born with all of their eggs, so they have no opportunity to get new ones. She will mature a small number of eggs at any one time (antrical follicles) ready for fertilisation. Men make new sperm every day, however they are not mature enough to fertilise an egg until they are three months old. Every single instruction for human life is contained within the egg and the sperm, hair colour, gender and also the instruction for two kidneys, one heart, with four chambers. The human body is dynamic, not static. Egg and sperm quality change constantly based on their environment. Implementation of all of the genetic instruction occurs during the first eight weeks in the womb. If what is produced is not compatible with life, a miscarriage can occur. The three months prior to conception is a crucial time for ensuring the genetic instruction is given the best chance of quality. This three months of pre-conception care can significantly reduce the risk of miscarriage.
Women sometimes believe that only they can be at fault, that they are ‘unable to carry’ or did something wrong during the early stage of pregnancy. Mostly this is a myth. Once the embryo is of good quality and compatible with life, it can withstand a lot in it’s quest for life. To reduce the risk of miscarriage it is vital that both partners participate in pre conception care.
