Preparing for pregnancy

It's important to prepare for your pregnancy by meeting with your gynecologist a couple of months before you anticipate trying to conceive. A fast review of your medical problems and the medications you are on, will help identify if you are at risk for any problems. It is always important to get started on a prenatal vitamin with folic acid a couple of months before you try to conceive. The doctor and the patient can work together in getting you pregnant quickly and safely.
