If you’re trying to have a baby or just thinking about it, it’s never too early to start preparing. Pre-conception health care focuses on things you can do before and between pregnancies to increase the chances of having a healthy baby.
This can include managing any medical conditions, which might affect your health or the health of your baby in and following pregnancy. It also involves reviewing lifestyle factors such as smoking and alcohol intake.
Some medications including both prescription and over the counter may be harmful to your unborn child.
There may be some vaccinations that are recommended before you become pregnant. Having the correct vaccinations prior to pregnancy can protect your baby from serious health complications.
