Preconception Consultations

Preconception consultation services are available to help patients plan and prepare for a healthy, successful pregnancy.  Preconception consultation services are helpful for patients who are considering a future pregnancy, but have concerns due to pre-existing medical, obstetrical or genetic problems.  These problems could include:

  • Medical issues such as:
    • High Blood Pressure
    • Diabetes Mellitus
    • History of Cancer
    • Kidney Disease
    • Known Bleeding Disorders
  • Obstetrical issues such as:
    • History of pregnancy loss
    • History of preterm labor/birth
    • Medical issues related to pregnancy such as Pregnancy Induced Hypertension, Cardiomyopathy, history of Molar pregnancy
  • Genetic issues:
    • Known genetic diagnosis

During a preconception consultation, patients meet with one of our [board certified] perinatologists (physicians who specialize in high risk pregnancies) to discuss their specific medical, obstetrical or genetic issues.  Working with the patient’s referring obstetrician, our perinatologists help to identify risk factors for future pregnancies.  We develop a plan of care based on each patient’s individual needs, all focused on improving the outcome of future pregnancies.   Patients are given the opportunity to have their questions answered, and are educated as to lifestyle and medical options; all aimed at enhancing pregnancy outcomes.
