“Proceive® is an amazing Irish brand that specialise in looking after us ladies (and men!) in the pre-conception, pregnancy and post-partum phase of life. The important thing to understand about all supplements is that they are not all made equally, and quality really matters. The reason we love Proceive is that they only use the highest quality ingredients in the formulation of each product, so you can be sure that you’re giving your body and future baby the absolute best!”

Dr Michell Hone
Nutrition Phd, Founder of The Fit Clinic, Special interest in Womens Health

“Lifestyle interventions are the 1st port of call for many medical conditions. Preconception, pregnancy and postpartum health is no different. The importance of optimal vitamin supplementation cannot be under-rated. Proceive® as a brand ticks all the boxes providing women and men with a high quality and comprehensive multivitamin. We know that the nutrition a baby receives during the 1st 1000 days of life has an overwhelming positive influence on how they develop, grow and learn. Proceive’s vast range offers the very best start for your family.”

Dr Roisin O'Loughlin
GP, Founder of Fertility HQ, Special interest in Womens Health

“As a nutritionist working in the area of fertility, I recognise the need to use a nutritional supplement to support conception. Formulations containing vital nutrients that are important to support a healthy conception are available now. I highly recommend to any man or woman who is considering having a baby to take a good fertility supplement."

Ask The Experts

When should I start preparing my body for conception?

"3 months prior to conception, this is an important time for both sperm and egg development, Sperm is created from scratch every 3 months while egg cells develop from immature follicles to mature cells ready to make a baby in approx. 3 months. These cells are exposed to absolutely everything you do (eat, sleep, drink, stress, smoke) in those 3 months. This gives us a really good opportunity to optimise the quality of the sperm and egg during this time and in turn, impacts the health of your unborn child."

Dr. Roisin O'Loughlin

Does a Low AMH mean I can't get pregnant?

"No, The level or measurement of Anti Mullerian Hormone in a woman is simply a response to a number of things going on in the ovaries and is not static. It gives a rough idea as to how many eggs may be present. This is only a general indicator used to ascertain levels for possible retrieval if IVF is being considered. The most important thing to remember is that you only need one egg that is of good quality and strong enough to fully mature. Egg quality is far more important."
