If you are thinking about having a baby, it is not too early to prepare for a safe pregnancy with preconception care. Preconception care involves finding any problems that you might have that could hinder your pregnancy, before you get pregnant. It also involves taking steps to reduce the risk of birth defects and other problems that could affect your baby. By taking action before pregnancy, you can prevent many future problems for yourself and your baby.
Both women and men can benefit from preconception health, whether or not they plan to have babies in the future. This is because a part of preconception health is aimed at helping people remain healthy throughout their lives. With many miscarriages, premature and stillbirths, preconception health and preconception health care can make a huge difference in the lives of expectant mothers.
Preconception health care differs from patient to patient, as it depends on the individual need of each person. Based on your specific needs, we will recommend a course of treatment or follow-up care that is most effective for you.
Preconception health is a precious gift to babies. For babies, preconception health means their parents took steps to get healthy before pregnancy. Such babies are less likely to be born early or underweight. They are more likely to be born without birth defects or other disabling conditions. Preconception health care means living well, being healthy, and feeling good about your life. This is an important step for every woman - not just those who plan to have babies – as preconception health is about making a plan for the future and taking the necessary steps to get there.
