Yes I Want to Become Pregnant

footer-04-01

Your health before you become pregnant is critical for a healthy pregnancy and baby. If you want to get pregnant soon, a few things to consider are:

 

  • Start taking folic acid or a prenatal vitamin daily
  • Make sure any health conditions, such as asthma or diabetes, are being managed
  • Ask if the medications you are taking are safe during pregnancy

It’s best for your body and the health of your next baby to wait about 18 months after giving birth to become pregnant again. Talk with your partner about your goals for pregnancy and what steps you can take to be as healthy as possible. You may also want to:

  •  Check that your vaccines are current
  •  Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
  •  Get active – a healthy weight and regular physical activity can make a big difference!
  •  Make a dental appointment for oral health
