Scheduling an appointment with your physician for pre-conception counseling is recommended for women who are considering pregnancy. You may be emotionally ready for pregnancy, but is your body physically ready? Pre-conception planning is the extra step to ensuring a healthy pregnancy. It allows us to answer your questions and give you peace of mind while trying to conceive.
Physicians at The Longstreet Clinic’s Center for Women’s Health will discuss your current health status and your health history, as well as other factors affecting your ability to conceive. These factors include:
Your lifestyle and behaviors
The medical condition of you and your partner
Your current and previous medications, including birth control
If you are trying to conceive, the sooner you start living a healthy lifestyle, the better. This includes eating healthy foods and not drinking, smoking or doing drugs. Make sure you get enough sleep and exercise. These lifestyle changes will help ensure a healthy pregnancy.
It is recommended that women take a vitamin with folic acid and achieve a healthy weight before trying to conceive. It is also very important to consider the emotional and routine changes a pregnancy will create for you and your partner.
The Center for Women’s Health at The Longstreet Clinic understands that caring for a woman’s health requires more than just good “medical” care. Call (770)297-2200 or contact us to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced physicians to help you with your health needs.
