Preconception counselling

It provides an opportunity to discuss your medical history, lifestyle habits, and any potential risk factors that may impact your fertility and pregnancy.

Overview

Preconception counseling is an important step for couples who are planning to have a baby. It involves discussing your medical history, lifestyle, and any potential risk factors that may affect your fertility and pregnancy. The goal of preconception counseling is to identify and address any health issues that may impact your ability to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy.

Why is Preconception Counseling Important?

Preconception counseling is important because it provides an opportunity for couples to discuss any health concerns and make lifestyle changes that can improve their chances of having a healthy pregnancy. During the counseling session, your healthcare provider will ask you about your medical history, lifestyle habits, and any medications or supplements you may be taking. They may also perform a physical exam and order laboratory tests to assess your overall health.

Based on the information gathered during the counseling session, your healthcare provider will provide recommendations for maintaining a healthy pregnancy, such as improving your diet, quitting smoking, reducing alcohol consumption, and getting vaccinated against certain diseases. They may also advise you on the best time to conceive and provide information about genetic testing and other prenatal screening options.

Benefits of Preconception Counseling

Preconception counseling provides several benefits, including:

  1. Improved Fertility: By addressing any health concerns and making lifestyle changes, preconception counseling can help improve your fertility and increase your chances of conceiving.

  2. Healthy Pregnancy: By taking steps to optimize your health before pregnancy, you can reduce your risk of complications during pregnancy and ensure a healthy pregnancy for you and your baby.

  3. Reduced Risk of Birth Defects: Preconception counseling can help identify any genetic conditions or risk factors that may impact your pregnancy, allowing for early intervention and reduced risk of birth defects.

  4. Peace of Mind: Preconception counseling provides peace of mind by ensuring that you are fully prepared for pregnancy and equipped with the knowledge and resources needed to have a healthy pregnancy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before your first appointment, one of our clinical care coordinators will call you to discuss your case and review what appointments to expect. The clinical care coordinator will make sure all appointments are arranged in a timely fashion. Each of our patients is unique and treated individually, and the schedule of doctors you see will be tailored specifically to your needs. The doctors will discuss your care options with you and answer any questions that you may have regarding your diagnosis and management.

We are dedicated to helping pregnant women and their families after a significant birth defect or genetic condition has been detected. Specialists from both obstetrics and pediatrics work together as a team to determine the best way to care for you and your unborn baby, both during and after your pregnancy.

Whenever possible, we create an integrated appointment plan, so that you can meet with the multiple subspecialists involved in your case. Some patients come here for a second opinion and go back to their obstetrician. Other patients transfer their care to Columbia as their delivery date approaches to make sure their baby immediately receives the necessary specialized pediatric care after birth.
