Preconception Counseling

Preconception Counseling is a discussion of a woman's overall health – physical, mental, & emotional - in preparation for pregnancy and childbirth. Discussion includes dialogue about her own (and her mate’s) attitudes and expectations about pregnancy, birth, and parenting; and evaluation of and recommendations for positive health practices including nutrition, exercise, work, rest, recreation and other lifestyle influences on reproduction. A physical may be included upon request and/or lab tests ordered as needed.
