Preconception Care

 

Preconception care is an opportunity for you and your partner to improve your health before you start trying for a baby. I can help you by assessing your health, fitness and lifstyle, to identify areas you may want to improve.

 

It may be useful if you are having trouble conceiving, or if you want to know how conditions such as asthma, diabetes, obesity or epilepsy can affect pregnancy

Preconception health is a woman's health before she becomes pregnant. It means knowing how health conditions and risk factors could affect a woman or her unborn baby if she becomes pregnant. For example, some foods, habits, and medicines can harm your baby — even before he or she is conceived. Some health problems can also affect pregnancy.

Preconception care can improve your chances of getting pregnant, having a healthy pregnancy, and having a healthy baby.
