Health Before Pregnancy


Health Before Pregnancy

There are a number of health conditions that can make it difficult to get pregnant, but if you have made the decision to try for a baby the good news is that many of these conditions can be avoided just with a bit of preparation.

One of the first things women who are looking to get pregnant should do is ensure that they are up to date with their immunizations and track their menstrual cycle so as to be able to assist their doctor with calculating an accurate due date.

Women who are overweight or obese need to cut down their BMI size in order to have the best chance of getting pregnant and then having an easier time during pregnancy and at the actual birth.

Women should also go to their health professionals to discuss any other health issues they may have. This is the time to get all chronic illnesses and medications under control.
