Thinking of starting your family? There’s no better place to start than Women’s Health Specialists of CentraState. Having a healthy baby begins before you get pregnant. Two of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby are to start taking a prenatal vitamin now and schedule a preconception exam as soon as possible. A preconception exam helps make sure that your body is ready for pregnancy. We will review your overall health and medical conditions. Some medications and conditions, like depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, can affect pregnancy and fertility.
This also is a good time to talk about you and your partner’s family health histories so we can address any genetic risks you might have. By being proactive now, you can address health and fertility issues or problems that may affect you or your baby later.
