Scheduling a preconception checkup before you even try to get pregnant is one of the best steps you can take to ensure a healthy path for you and your baby-to-be. It’s even part of the latest advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Talking to a doctor about any lifestyle issues that might affect babymaking makes sense for every woman, but is especially important for women with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, mood disorders, or epilepsy. A preconception check up can help you get a handle on what pregnancy will mean for you and the best ways to handle your health while you’re gestating.
