In some cases, conception happens very easily, even unexpectedly. However, in other cases, for various reasons, conceiving a child can be a challenge. Because of this, if you are looking to have kids and want to anticipate any potential stumbling blocks, preconception counseling from Helio could be just what you need.
How Does Preconception Counseling Work?
If you are interested in preconception counseling, first, come in for a consultation. We start with a preconception risk assessment which may include a questionnaire and health screening and use that as a framework for your session.
What Does Preconception Counseling Address?
Preconception counseling can address a number of issues, for example, the steps to take to maximize your chances of getting pregnant, what to expect while trying to become pregnant, and how to take care of your body while pregnant to best ensure the health of the fetus.
What Can I Expect During Counseling?
The initial pre-screening questionnaire will cover questions dealing with your lifestyle choices and family history. After that may be bloodwork and urinalysis, which can provide information about infection or illnesses that could impede conception or risk the life of a fetus. Once Dr. Neyman has all the information, she can counsel you on the best way to proceed with your plans.
What Are the Desired Results?
Results differ from woman to woman. However, through this counseling, we can provide expert nutritional advice, lifestyle suggestions, and possibly medical interventions. This should give you the best chance of conceiving and carrying a healthy baby to term.
