Pre-Conception Health

The Launch of a Special Interest Group in Pre-Conception Health

The first business meeting of the Pre conception Health Special Interest Group (PCH-SIG) attended by 22 keen individuals was held at the Fertility Society of Australia (FSA) annual conference in Perth, Australia on 26th of October, 2009.

We identified a number of aims for the group including: Identification of models of care to address and assess lifestyle factors in fertility clinics across Australia:

  • Development and synthesis of existing pre-conception guidelines for Australian populations – both general and specific to infertility
  • Facilitating collaborative research
  • Development of a national database of projects commensurate with the PCH-SIG mission.

We are delighted to be launching the Pre-Conception Health SIG and welcome new members
