What is preconception health/care and why is it important for both men and women?

Preconception health refers to the health of couples prior to conception. Preconception care is all about taking positive steps to improve a couple’s health and wellness, during the preconception period (six months before the baby is born).

Why it’s Important…

For years, preconception health/care has been predominantly focused on women. But today, we now know that the lifestyle choices of both men and women before conception are equally important, not only for pregnancy outcomes, but also for the lifelong health of their children. (Source: The Lancet)

Proactively approaching one of life’s biggest moments together, right from the start can make all the difference.  

Why is healthy sperm so important?

Age, diet, and lifestyle, as well as other everyday factors, can have negative effects on the health of sperm. In fact, numerous studies show that Dads’ lifestyle choices are reflected in his sperm (at an epigenetic level), and can influence fertility plus the healthy development of a child.

Making healthier lifestyle choices can make a big difference. This is why it’s so important to get started on the right path prior to conception.

Healthy you = healthy sperm.

What is epigenetics, anyways? 

It is essentially the idea that social and environmental choices can impact a person’s genetic expression and can cause genes to become active/expressed (turned on) or dormant (turned off) over time. For example, an unhealthy lifestyle involving things like a poor diet, smoking, and lack of exercise can “turn on” the expression of genes that are related to certain diseases (such as heart disease, obesity, etc.) while incorporating healthier lifestyle choices can help suppress them.  

According to a leading researcher in this area, Dr. Sergio Pecorelli, MD, PhD, his theory is that sperm and egg cells are also susceptible to this kind of epigenetic activity. In a recent article by health site, Well + Good, he was quoted as saying, “This is extremely important because the behavior of the father and mother before conception, if not correct, could predispose the newborn to chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and so on.”

The good news is that adopting healthy lifestyle habits (six months before conception) can make a difference, and translate into more positive gene expression..
