Nearly one-half of pregnancies are unintended, some more so than others in the sense that one may be planning a pregnancy in the distant future, but not at the moment. If pregnancy is in your future, even in a year or two, planning ahead to ensure you are your healthiest self can help you to have a healthy pregnancy.
Preconception counseling gives us the opportunity to look at physical, behavioral, environmental, and social risks you may have and work to lessen them. This discussion may lead to suggestions for labs, additional counseling, and lifestyle changes to improve your health.
