In order to optimize your chances of success with fertility treatments, the physicians at KIMS advocate for a healthy lifestyle at the Integrated Fertility & Wellness Centre. This includes the use of prenatal vitamins containing at least 0.4 mg of folic acid, a healthy balanced diet, maintenance of a normal body weight, sleep and physical activity. Patients should refrain from smoking and should discuss the use of any medications with their physician
KIMS feels that certain wellness therapies can be helpful in the management of infertility. Many of our patients find value in yoga, meditation and exercise during treatment and throughout pregnancy through a variety of life-style modifications that assist with weight loss and stress relief. Optimizing health is critical for success for both natural conception and with fertility treatments.
For patients who are interested, KIMS has worked closely with a number of practitioners over the years to provide an integrated approach to their fertility care.
