Pre-conception screening and counsellling

Pre-conception Screening and Counselling are intended to assess the health of a woman planning for pregnancy while at the same time identifying:

• Existing or emerging illness or disease which may have gone undetected before
• Existing risks for the woman who may become pregnant
• Existing risks which may affect a fetus if the woman does become pregnant

Being aware of pre-existing conditions and areas of potential problems allows the appropriate investigations and interventions to be performed, so as to optimise the pregnancy outcome for both mother and baby. Women who are thinking of getting pregnant should go for Pre-conception Screening and Counselling before stopping their current birth control.
