There is a Chinese medicine saying for fertility that states "Nourish the Soil Before You Plant the Seed". In Chinese medicine prevention is a big focus, and when it comes to creating life, a healthy baby, the approach is on the preconception period. In this blog I share with you three video clips discussing how the 3 months before conception (or IVF cycle) can impact your fertility potential and the health blueprint of your child.
