Preconception Care and Counseling for Safe and Healthy Pregnancy

It always pays to be prudent when planning to conceive a child. For a safe and healthy pregnancy, you must consider opting for preconception care and preconception counseling. By turning to those, you can avert as much trouble getting pregnant as possible.


Preconception care involves knowing, identifying and tackling any problems that might arise and affect your baby and you in the long run. It entails taking the necessary steps to reduce birth defect risks and other birth related problems like high blood pressure and diabetes. We, at AWHC, offer you good and the right preconception care and preconception counseling programs and therapies.


With preconception care and preconception counseling, you and your partner can make the right changes to your lifestyles because unsuitable lifestyles on either part can cause difficulty in getting pregnant or affecting your child during and after pregnancy.


Trouble getting pregnant can be attributed to several factors such as your age, any history of medical problems, family history, lifestyle, diet, past pregnancy. Preparing well for your pregnancy can compensate for any trouble getting pregnant thereby increasing your chances of conceiving and minimizing the risk of developing any sorts of complications.


You can apply advice about nutrition, lifestyle and screening when undertaking preconception care or counseling. Our team of specialists will determine and chart out a prefect diet plan for you so that you consume nutrients in the right amounts. They will offer you advice on how to lead a healthy lifestyle and perform screening tests to check you for any disorder or condition that can take a toll on your pregnancy.


Preconception counseling is not reserved exclusively for women. Even men should take active part in receiving preconception care. They must alter their lifestyles and inappropriate habits, if any, like cutting down on alcohol or smoking. They too must consume balanced diets. Because, as a matter of fact, it takes two to procreate.
