Having a safe, happy, and healthy pregnancy begins well before you test positive on your pregnancy test. Unplanned pregnancies may be associated with a greater risk of preterm birth; low birth weight; structural abnormalities or genetic problems in babies. So it is essential that the woman should be healthier before she has a baby on board.
Preconceptional counseling involves a detailed consultation with your doctor who will make sure that you have an uneventful and uncomplicated pregnancy and in a way it is also a good opportunity for you and your partner to improve your own health and identify any health conditions or risks factors that may affect you or your unborn baby before pregnancy. Pre-conceptional health care should be started 3 months before or at least one month before pregnancy for the best and healthy outcome of pregnancy.
