Overview

Couples who are planning for pregnancy should get pre-pregnancy counseling. It helps them to understand their present medical conditions and any possible risks associated. An expert will take note of your family history, physical problems, lifestyle, etc. If you are planning to conceive, you should consider taking pre-conception counselling at least three months prior. Keep reading to know about it in detail.

What is Pre-pregnancy counselling?

Pre-pregnancy counseling is a meeting with your doctor to discuss your options if you get pregnant in the future. Family history, physical problems, and your lifestyle is addressed as well as your exposure to risk factors. Preparation and good health are the main components of a happy and successful pregnancy.

What is Pre-pregnancy counselling?

Pre-pregnancy counseling is a meeting with your doctor to discuss your options if you get pregnant in the future. Family history, physical problems, and your lifestyle is addressed as well as your exposure to risk factors. Preparation and good health are the main components of a happy and successful pregnancy.

When is it needed?

Make an appointment for this visit at least three months before you want to try to get pregnant. This way, you will have enough time to discuss every concern with your obstetricians and gynecologist’s doctor.

Why is it needed?

Although not all couples choose pre-pregnancy therapy, the time leading up to counseling is critical in most instances. One or both of the spouses may have health problems that can result in a high-risk pregnancy. As a result, counseling may be useful in resolving such problems.

We can avoid most pregnancy complications with counselling. The importance of pre-pregnancy counseling can’t be overstated. Here are a few of the explanations:

  • Doctors and couples may benefit from counseling when determining when the best time to get pregnant is.
  • Pre-pregnancy counseling sessions include information on genetic screening for expectant mothers. Women who are trying to become pregnant should take advantage of this.
  • It aids in determining whether or not a prenatal STI test is necessary.

What happens during a pre-pregnancy counseling appointment?

Once you and your spouse have given the doctor your complete medical history, the doctor will begin the examination. He might also do some tests and exams like Pap smears, blood tests, among other things. These tests ensure that you don’t have any serious medical issues during pregnancy.

Moreover, there are a lot of benefits of the pre-pregnancy counseling exam. If any problems are discovered during it, several medical advances may assist you in resolving them and giving birth to a healthy child.

Assessments and Tests

During the session, several tests are conducted. The following is a list of some of them:

  • Routine blood tests: This test identifies if one or both partners need medication or treatment to prevent complications during conception and pregnancy.
  • CBC count: Low haemoglobin levels in the mother can harm the fetus’ health and development. This test can help you avoid anemia.
  • Antibody testing: The pregnant mother’s IgG antibody level to German measles or Rubella is tested to see whether she is immune to the disease. If she is determined to be non-immune, doctors advise vaccination. Infected women should delay pregnancy until the virus is eliminated from their system.
  • Thyroid test: Infertility problems may be caused by an overactive thyroid gland. Around one-third of individuals have thyroid illness, which is diagnosed via a simple blood test. Unresolved issues may lead to lower baby IQ and neurodevelopment.
  • Thalassemia screening: A thalassemia gene test is conducted on both parents to identify whether or not their children will have the disease. This condition will run in the family 25% of the time.
  • Vitamin deficiency: This is quite normal for females to do. However, a shortage in vitamin B12 or D during pregnancy or breastfeeding may create complications. It’s critical to address these problems before becoming pregnant to avoid them later in the pregnancy.
  • Pap smear test: This test determines whether the cervix has any malignant cells.
  • Genetic counseling: When a couple has previously had pregnancy-related issues such as a stillbirth or recurrent miscarriage, this test may identify the cause. During a future pregnancy, treatments can decrease or prevent the risks of the same.
  • Sexually transmitted diseases tests: HIV, VDRL, Hepatitis C, and B are only a few of the sexually transmitted illnesses (STIs) that are tested for.

Conclusion

If you are planning to conceive in some time, consider taking pre-conception counseling. It will prepare you for your pregnancy journey properly. Moreover, as pregnancy needs proper planning, counseling will prepare you medically, physically, and emotionally. 

You can book an appointment with our experts to understand it in detail.

After enduring knee pain for the past decade, my mother sought advice from various doctors in Nagpur, Nashik, and Pune. They all recommended knee replacement surgery, but it was only when we discovered Dr. Aashish Arbat and the option of robotics surgery that we made the decision to proceed.

The surgery took place on June 23, 2023, and it turned out to be an incredible experience. To our astonishment, on the morning of June 24, my mother was able to stand on her own legs and even take a few steps. This remarkable progress was made possible due to the advanced assistance of robotics arm and Artificial Intelligence.

Dr. Aashish Arbat is an exceptional and highly experienced surgeon, and we are immensely grateful for his expertise. We also extend our appreciation to his colleagues, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Ram, for their excellent skills and compassionate nature. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the entire team for enabling my mother to live a pain-free life
