GEORGINA'S MAMA DOCTOR: the 0th trimester
The ~90 days before conception is so important & I want everyone to hear about it!
The ‘0th Trimester’ as I like to call it is the time BEFORE you get pregnant. And this could be about 90 days—IF you’re period is coming regularly & without symptoms (if not we may need back up & help with that first)
It takes about 3 months for an egg to reach maturation & about 3 months to create a healthy uterine lining for implantation. OH and let’s not forget about the boys—it takes about 3 months to make brand new sperm from scratch. So in the 3 months leading up to conception, we want you & your partner to get healthy.
This means the best genetic material for baby, the easiest pregnancy for you & sets baby up for a lifetime of health. ⠀⠀
Even though around half the pregnancies in North America are still unplanned, we’re seeing more & more couples think ahead & prepare for their pregnancies. If you’re thinking 🤔I want to be pregnant in the next 6 months to 1 year, it’s time to start thinking about your health!
This is why I have designed a ‘0th Trimester’ fertility program to get you on track.
I've increased my hours at ANCHOR to accommodate more families. You can find me there Monday mornings and Tuesday evenings.
Looking forward to working with you,
Dr. Watson, B.A (Hons), ND
