Abstract:
Preconceptual health is the health of a woman before she gets pregnant and between subsequent pregnancies. Preconceptual care is a set of interventions that aim to identify and modify biomedical, behavioural, and social risks to a woman’s health or pregnancy outcome through prevention and management.1 It is well documented that modifiable lifestyle factors such as obesity, diet and exercise, alcohol, smoking and use of recreational drugs can have potentially detrimental effects on pregnancy outcomes. A growing body of evidence is showing that recognising and amending risks in women before conception can have a positive impact on reducing maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.
