Learn more about our preconception program
Serenity Health Care Center is concerned about the increased risk in the U.S. of babies being born birth defects, preterm, of low birth weight. Currently 1 out 8 children are born with Autism, this number is so incredible high and our own Dr. Greg Brown and Sonja Hintz, RN know all too well the affects this has on the parents, families and children themselves.
In 2008, the U.S. infant mortality rate was 6.61 per 1,000 live births. In the 2005 international rankings, the United States ranked 30th in infant mortality, behind other developed countries including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, and most European countries. We want to assist women in preparing the bodies for a healthy pregnancy and give them the best opportunity to a healthy child.
How long is Serenity Health’s Preconception Program?
Our program is in depth and the length of the program can vary based on your current health. It is important to have a healthy diet, start a good exercise program, and take the appropriate dietary supplements. Optimally, we recommend that you plan to participate in the program for 1-2 years prior to conceiving.
What is included in the Preconception Program?
Serenity Health Care Center will perform various blood tests, salivary testing, metabolic testing and heavy metal testing are just a few tests that are obtained. If you have specific genetic issues further testing may be explored.
How do I get started in the preconception program?
To get started with the preconception program at Serenity Health Care Center you will first have a consultation with Sonja Hintz, RN. Ms. Hintz will assist you in providing us an in depth history and create an individual plan that best fits your situation. Once the consultation is complete an individualized program will be set up. You will have the opportunity to participant in any testing or chose to opt out of the recommended testing.
