Advice for Preconception

Many women are interested in making lifestyle changes before they get pregnant, and for good reason. During preconception (the time during which you are not yet pregnant), you can increase your chances of getting pregnant and set the stage for a healthy pregnancy by making your health a priority. For example, this includes:
 
  • Taking folic acid (this reduces the risk of serious birth defects)
  • Quitting smoking
  • Maintaining an appropriate exercise program (or, if you have been sedentary, starting one)
  • Addressing health issues such as high blood pressure.
