Planning pre pregnancy

CAPTCHAThis question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. These recommendations include: checking that your vaccinations are up-to-date, medication approval by your doctor and pre-conception medical tests. If you are planning a pregnancy or   thinking of starting a family, we can offer advice on family planning to you and your partner.
If you are planning a pregnancy, it is recommended that you take folic acid, (0.4mg a day for 3 months prior to conception, and for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy), and that your rubella status is checked prior to becoming pregnant. Vaccinations can protect against infectious diseases such as varicella (chickenpox), influenza, measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), and hepatitis B that can seriously harm you and your baby if you fall ill during pregnancy. If a pregnant woman develops diseases such as rubella and chickenpox, this can cause brain, heart, eye and ear and limb deformity in the baby.
You and your unborn child can potentially be exposed to the serious effects of these diseases if you are not vaccinated before you fall pregnant.


In an ideal world, women would be up-to-date with immunisation before they become pregnant. However, there are some vaccinations that your doctor may recommend having during pregnancy.
It’s a good idea to meet with your physician for a wellness check-up and let him or her know that you’re planning to get pregnant. Your physician will review prescription medications, update vaccinations, and review any other chronic conditions or medical concerns as they relate to a healthy pregnancy.Most importantly, a visit is a chance for you to ask questions.
There are several things you should do before trying to conceive in order to promote a healthy pregnancy. We can provide information on contraception, pre-conception recommendations, and advice for those who are having difficulties conceiving. Vaccinations are usually advised against during pregnancy as there can be some risk of a mild fever, a known cause of birth defects.


Your doctor will advise you on pre-natal vitamins, healthy exercise, and lifestyle changes to help you with a healthy pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
For instance, you should avoid becoming pregnant for 28 days after the measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (chickenpox) vaccines, as these vaccines contain live viruses which may be of risk to the fetus. If you are already pregnant, it’s best you are guided by your doctor on the risks and benefits of the immunisation in your case.
