Pre Conceptual Care

Preconception care is vitally important and should start at least six months before you try for a baby. Preparation for pregnancy means that both parents can be as healthy as possible when the baby is conceived. This goes a long way towards safeguarding the health of the unborn child, promoting a trouble-free pregnancy and is particularly important where there has been a history of miscarriage, premature birth, birth defects, or problems with fertility that seem to have no particular cause. The first few weeks of pregnancy are vital ones for the baby’s development and there is plenty of research to indicate that the state of health of parents at the time of conception has far-reaching implications for a child’s future development.
