BABY STEPS: PREPARING FOR A BABY THROUGH PRECONCEPTION PLANNING * SPECIAL CLASS *
Babies are one of the happiest miracles in life, and when it comes to something as important as you and your child’s health, planning ahead is always best.
For many couples, getting ready for a new arrival often begins once they confirm they are expecting. But, by the time couples learn they are expecting, they may have missed a critical window of opportunity to ensure a healthy start.
There is evidence that many preconception interventions can reduce the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes such as birth defects, miscarriage, low birth weight, and preterm delivery. Learning what preconception planning is, why you should do it, and when to start planning is pertinent to your family’s future!
We invite you to join us at a free preconception planning class on Saturday, June 29th to learn about topics including:
· Reproductive planning
· Fears about pregnancy
· Mental health and stress
· Your partner’s role
These are just a few of the topics we will explore throughout the event. To learn more, visit http://www.startingmyfamily.com. Be sure to register here because what you do before pregnancy is just as important as what you do during pregnancy!
