Preconception health care is a must before you bear a child. As a gynecologist, my job is to check your overall well-being from your medical conditions, lifestyle, and behavior so I can assess how you will undergo pregnancy. I will focus on things you can do before and between pregnancies to increase the chances of having a healthy baby.
Healthy Pregnancy Habits
As a specialist, I help you start by developing healthy habits in order to bear a healthy baby. One of the simple ways is to stop smoking, since it may cause problems during your pregnancy. Being exposed to any toxic substances and environment contaminants can hurt your reproductive system so you should avoid these harmful materials. Once you get pregnant, be sure to keep up with your healthy habits and see your doctor regularly.
