Your TRIO Physician & Naturopath Working Together

Quality eggs and sperm, a healthy body, and balanced hormones can improve your fertility treatment outcomes. That’s why TRIO works hand-in-hand with Conceive Health — naturopaths who specialize in preconception care to help you prepare for fertility treatment.

Conceive Health is located onsite at TRIO as well as our satellite locations. Our unique model allows your TRIO fertility specialist and naturopath to work together to improve your chances of conceiving and maintaining your pregnancy.

Improved Fertility Outcomes

Eggs and sperm take approximately 100 days to develop. During this time, they are vulnerable to poor nutrition, environmental, and social toxins. Research shows that lifestyle factors and targeted supplementation can improve egg and sperm quality increasing viable pregnancy rates.

Effective preconception care can have an impact on many factors when trying to conceive, including but not limited to:

  • Quality of the egg and sperm
  • Chance of conceiving
  • Fertility treatment success
  • Fertility treatment side effects
  • Pregnancy complications
  • The health of the baby

Your Naturopathic Fertility Doctor

Conceive Health NDs help both patients prepare for fertility treatment by creating a personal preconception care plan. Customized to align with your fertility procedures at TRIO, your plan may include one or more of the following:

Hormone, Genetic and Lab Testing

Your hormones and genetic history are a critical part of fertility. Conceive Health NDs work with your TRIO team to take a deeper look at all factors of your fertility— and how they work together.

Lifestyle Enhancements

Environmental and habitual factors such as toxins, pollutants, smoking, and alcohol all have an impact on your ability to conceive. Your ND will help you examine your lifestyle and identify enhancements that can help your body support healthy sperm, eggs, and uterine environment.

Fertility Diet and Exercise Programs

There are countless diet and exercise plans out there — but not all of them are ideal for fertility treatment or pregnancy. Our NDs will design a plan that complements your unique nutritional and physical activity needs and supports your fertility treatment plan.

Nutritional Evaluation and Body Composition

Healthy body weight is essential for optimal fertility. Body Mass Index (BMI) that is either too high or too low can negatively impact conception and pregnancy. Conceive Health customizes weight management strategies to help you achieve your fertility goals, and give your future child a healthy start to life.

Fertility Supplement Recommendations

Ensuring you have all the nutritional building blocks to achieve and sustain a healthy pregnancy is vital for conception. But taking the wrong supplement can also have negative impacts on your fertility treatment and/or interact with your medications. Your NDs will help you to take the right supplement in the right dosage for your treatment plan.

Stress Reduction Strategies

Undergoing fertility treatment can be stressful. Stress is known to impact aspiring parents’ ability to conceive. Knowing that can make aspiring parents all the more stressed. It’s a frustrating cycle and we understand. Our NDs help patients navigate stress specific to fertility treatment so that they can help break the cycle and improve their chance of conception.

Timed Acupuncture

Research shows that acupuncture improves blood flow to the ovaries, uterus, and endometrial lining in patients undergoing IVF and IUI. It is recommended that you begin acupuncture before your procedure for the best outcome. Conceive Health provides Acupuncture onsite during monitoring hours and on Transfer day to align with your treatment.

Waiting for your funded IVF cycle?

Conceive Health NDs help you to take advantage of the 100 Days preconception period while you are waiting for your cycle. With one funded cycle, applying preconception care can help to improve the chance of success.

Integrated Naturopathic Fertility Support

TRIO is one of the first and only fertility clinics in Canada to work hand-in-hand with a fertility Naturopath. Our teams work off the same medical chart to make it easy for our patients to share their information. With our partners at Conceive Health, we provide our patients with unparalleled care and support.
