Pre Conception Care

Happy couple receiving pre conception care at LifeWorks

Preconception care is vitally important and should start at least six months before you try for a baby. Preparation for pregnancy means that both parents can be as healthy as possible when the baby is conceived. This goes a long way towards safeguarding the health of the unborn child, promoting a trouble-free pregnancy and is particularly important where there has been a history of miscarriage, premature birth, birth defects, or problems with fertility that seem to have no particular cause. The first few weeks of pregnancy are vital ones for the baby’s development and there is plenty of research to indicate that the state of health of parents at the time of conception has far-reaching implications for a child’s future development.

At LifeWorks we are interested in the future generations health and we work with many Tampa Bay parents pre-conception to ensure they have the healthiest baby they can.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
