Family Planning - Preconceptual Counseling

If you are planning to become pregnant, we recommend that you make an appointment with your doctor. Your doctor will try to identify things that may pose risks to you and your baby. You will be asked questions about your diet and lifestyle, medical history, use of birth control, past pregnancies, medications and family history. Your answers will help determine if you need to make any changes to prepare for pregnancy.

Becoming a parent is a major commitment filled with many challenges, rewards and choices. Making healthy choices before you become pregnant is an important step to a healthy and happy pregnancy.
