Preconception Counseling

Preconception Counseling

Preconception-CounselingMuch of the initial development of a baby occurs before a woman may realize that she is pregnant. Visiting with one of our women’s health specialists while a pregnancy is in the “planning stage” provides the opportunity to learn about things you can do to optimize the chance of conception. We will discuss ways to reduce the risks of the pregnancy by making dietary changes, beginning vitamin supplementation, considering weight reduction if necessary, and modifying risk-producing behaviors before conception. An evaluation of genetic risks and other risk factors can also be performed during that conversation.
