Preconception Health

Preconception health refers to a woman's health before pregnancy.  The goal of preconception health is to prevent conditions and behaviors that could pose a risk to a woman or her baby.    

In the United States, 85% of all women will have a baby at some point in their lives.  The most important time in a baby's growth occurs before many women know they are pregnant.  Making sure that women of reproductive age are healthy  before and between pregnancies increases their chances of having healthy pregnancies and remaining healthy throughout their lives.
