Pre-conception Care

At Balance we have a special interest in fertility. We use a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal, naturopathic and nutritional medicine to support you on your journey to parenthood.

We look at underlying issues to support hormonal health, while supporting your physical and emotional well being

Natural medicine believes that preconception care is based on helping your body produce the healthiest eggs and sperm possible. It is a time to regulate the menstrual cycle, address any nutritional deficiencies and stockpile nutrients so you can give your baby the best start in life and enjoy a healthy, happy pregnancy. From our base in the Melbourne Bayside area we can tailor a treatment plan to fit with your individual requirements, working with your unique needs and concerns. We believe that an optimally healthy body is more likely to produce healthy sperm and eggs, to prepare your body for conception. Treatment may consist of Acupuncture, Chinese medicine, Naturopathic consultations to improve and support diet & lifestyle, and herbal & nutritional medicine if needed.

We view fertility beyond the western definition and lab results. Working with your medical practitioner, we investigate the underlying causes, deficiencies and imbalances to support you on your journey to parenthood, and address your overall physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

We believe that everyone should do a preconception care program but your medical practitioner or specialist may recommend a preconception plan when you need to address the following factors:

  • Poor egg quality
  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Low hormone levels
  • PCOS / Endometriosis
  • Sperm count, motility and morphology issues
  • Implantation failure
  • Multiple miscarriages
