Pre-Pregnancy Counselling

Some couples seek guidance prior to starting a family. This may simply be a meet and greet with an Obstetrician, fertility optimisation advice or sometimes to discuss other medical or genetic issues which could complicate a future pregnancy. Women with complicated medical problems including heart disease, diabetes and auto-immune diseases are encouraged to speak with their GP or Specialist prior to planning a pregnancy.

In general we recommend all women take folate for at least 4 weeks prior to a pregnancy, ensure their vaccinations are up to date, try to get close to their ideal body weight and satisfy their need to travel overseas prior to becoming pregnant.
