In this interview we explore what, in an ideal world, would be addressed in the six months prior to conceiving. We talk in detail about the ideal suite of testing to have done prior to TTC including gut microbiota analysis, blood testing and urine testing. We go into detail on B9 and folate supplementation, the options you have when choosing B9 and why folic acid is not the preferred form. We also discuss the other key nutrients for consideration preconception. There is lots to take on board in this conversation so if you’re considering TTC - get your pens and paper out! Enjoy!
