Preconception counselling

Before embarking on your journey towards pregnancy, seeking preconception counselling can be a pivotal step in ensuring informed decision-making and addressing potential risk factors. Dr. Delgado, a renowned expert in maternal health, emphasises the significance of this preparatory phase to optimise both short-term and long-term health outcomes for you and your future child.

Commencing with a comprehensive medical evaluation is essential. This evaluation, conducted by a qualified healthcare professional, serves to assess your overall health status and identify any pre-existing conditions that may impact pregnancy. Furthermore, ensuring that you are up-to-date with essential vaccinations is crucial. Vaccinations against diseases such as chickenpox, German measles and whooping cough are particularly vital as these illnesses pose significant risks to the health of your baby during pregnancy.

By availing yourself of counselling services, you can empower yourself with the necessary knowledge and resources to navigate the complexities of pregnancy planning with confidence and informed decision-making. This proactive approach not only fosters optimal maternal and foetal health but also sets the stage for a positive and fulfilling pregnancy experience.
