Preconception Care Thoughts

- Practice now the best preventive and prenatal care of all: the care you take of yourself. Avoid over-the counter drugs. If your physician is about to prescribe a drug or procedure, ask what effect either would have on you or your baby should you become pregnant. Discuss potential side effects of medications with your pharmacist as well. Eliminate exposure to second hand smoke, scented sprays/candles, and volatile cleaning products. Stop smoking/alcohol. Real food is the best nutrition. Continue to take note of science-based information related to such food additives as sodium and phosphates, and of taking large doses of vitamins and other supplements. Try to bring your weight as close to normal as possible, even if you need nutrition counseling to do so. If diabetic, keep blood sugars in normal range. With a self-taking blood pressure kit make periodic blood pressure checks a family health practice. Begin routine dental exams to avoid gum disease and other dental problems during pregnancy. All of the above will be your future baby's first experience with preventive health care. Familiarize yourself with what's available in books on pregnancy, childbirth and feeding a baby. Interview obstetricians, inquire about birth practices in area hospitals, and find out what community resources exist that provide interaction with other new and expectant parents. St. Louis offers Parents as Teachers,  MOMS Club, and WIC, for example. Discuss philosophies of baby and child care with your partner. Inquire of family members and friends about a history of having breastfed and identify potential supportive persons to assist during the postpartum period.
