Preconception Health Care – Lecture
In this Healthed lecture, Prof Kirsten Black explains that the pre-pregnancy consultation provides a unique opportunity to highlight the importance of nutrition and lifestyle in achieving the best outcome for both the baby and the mother.
Most would-be pregnant women are aware of the importance of taking folic acid pre-conception to lower the risk of the child having a neural tube defect. But, as Professor Kirsten Black will explain, there are many more evidence-based interventions that can optimise a woman’s chances of having a complication-free pregnancy and a healthy, thriving baby. All future mothers need to know about these.
