The months preceding conception are important and allow a woman to prepare herself physically and emotionally for a healthy pregnancy. This is a great time to get to know the midwives at Beach Cities Midwifery and Women’s Health Care.
We can assist you by making sure you are at your best prior to becoming pregnant. Evidence shows that taking a folic acid supplement in the months preceding pregnancy prevents certain birth defects such as Spina Bifida. Achieving your ideal healthy weight and establishing an exercise program will also get you off to a great start.
