Caring for your health before you conceive is one of the best ways to ensure that you’re both physically and emotionally prepared for pregnancy. A pre-conception counseling appointment with your doctor is an important first step in planning a family. Your doctor can identify any factors that may put you or your baby at risk during pregnancy. He or she can also advise you on nutrition, exercise, prenatal vitamins, and lifestyle changes, and help you to determine the time when you are most likely to get pregnant.
It’s easier for a healthy mom to make a healthy baby and that’s what preconception counseling is all about. If you’re thinking about starting a family, schedule a visit with your gynecologist now.
