About Pre-Conceptual Care

If you’re thinking about having a new baby, it’s never too early to start planning.  This is an excellent opportunity to take a personal health inventory and ensure that your body provides the healthiest environment in which to grow your baby.  Thankfully, the vast majority of pregnancies result in healthy newborns.  By planning ahead for your pregnancy, you will be sure to give your baby the best opportunity for a healthy beginning.

To summarise the recommendations for preconception:
  • Stop birth control

  • Avoid medications (where appropriate)

  • Take folic acid (400mcg) daily for at least one month before you conceive

  • Eat a healthy diet and exercise in moderation

  • Obstain from unnecessary vaccination at least three months before conception

  • Discontinue cigarettes, alcohol and other drugs

  • Test for infectious disease and screen for other medical problems
