Pre-conception care

I encourage all parents and couples embarking on the pregnancy journey to have a pre-pregnancy or a ‘pre-conception’ appointment.

The appointment’s goal is to ultimately reduce the risk of future pregnancy loss and other complications.

This appointment is valuable for:

  • General question and answers
  • Identifying and managing high-risk medical conditions with a multi-disciplinary team
  • Determining how past surgeries (e.g. cervix or uterine surgery) could affect future pregnancies
  • Medication safety review
  • Discussing family history and any available genetic screening
  • Vitamin and dietary optimisation
  • Immunity screening and top-up vaccinations
