Preconception planning is an essential aspect of pregnancy, childbirth, and the health of your future child. The further in advance you can start getting ready for the new addition to your household, the lower the risk factors for complications will be.
A preconception planning visit three months before you attempt to conceive is ideal. Having this period of time will allow you to take all the necessary steps to ensure a safe pregnancy for both you and your baby. These can include testing, exercise routine changes, and alterations to your diet.
