Becoming a parent consultation

You’ve made your decision. You (and your partner) have decided to stop using contraception. You hope to get pregnant. How exciting! You are more than welcome to sign up for our ‘becoming a parent’ consultation.
This consultation, also known as pre-conception care, aims to encourage a healthy pregnancy and increase the chances of giving birth to a healthy baby.
During the ‘becoming a parent’ consultation we cover subjects which can have an effect upon the health of your baby: you will receive advice about your nutrition and lifestyle; your partner should also take part in a healthy lifestyle! Specific subjects that will be discussed include the use of medicines and possible former problematic pregnancies. If you are taking any medication, this may sometimes need to be adjusted. We will also talk about the menstrual cycle and fertility, and possible anomalies within the families of the parent(s) to be. It is sometimes advised to undergo genetic tests before you become pregnant.
Good preparation increases the chances of a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby.
Whatever your situation, make sure to start taking 0.4 mg of folic acid per day. You can buy this from any chemist or pharmacy.
We will also need your health insurance details so that all invoices can be forewarded to them. Ask your insurance company whether this consultation is included in your insurance plan. If it is not you are still more than welcome, but will be charged €55,27 for the session.
Please make an appointment with the practice assistant.
