Foresight / Surrey University research 1992

Foresight - the British Association for the Promotion of Preconception Care was established in the UK in 1978. Their clinics have almost twenty years of practical experience with published clinical study results.

 

Published in the Journal of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine, 1995: Foresight with Surrey University, UK conducted a 2 year study with 367 couples which was completed in 1992.

 

The women participating in the study ranged in age from 22-45 years, the men from 25-59 years. 59% of the couples had prior adverse reproductive history, including 38% miscarriage and 37% infertility (1-10 years). The remaining 41% of the couples had no previous adverse reproductive history but among these were older couples.

 

Upon completion of the study, 89% of all the couples had successful births of healthy babies, including 81% of those who were previously infertile. In comparison to any similar sized population sample who do not practice preconception health care, approximately 70 miscarriages and 6 malformations usually occur.

Natural Fertility in New Zealand uses the same protocols but extends these to include specialised herbal treatments for reproductive and hormonal difficulties.

 

Foresight study 2003

Foresight completed a further, larger study with 1,061 couples.

Results show similar excellent outcomes, with a conception rate of 78.4% of a healthy baby within two years of following the program.

This study also suggests a more than doubled conception success rate for IVF of 47.1% following preconception health care.
