When a couple plans to conceive, they need to take care of many aspects related to health and screening to find out if their body is ready for conception. Meeting a healthcare professional before planning a child is known as preconception counselling. It helps a couple in identifying the risk factors and medical issues related to women’s fertility. It is said that preconception counselling should be considered an integral part of healthcare for women of reproductive age.

Need for Preconception Counselling for Couples

The counselling sessions deal with common preconception issues such as family planning, having an ideal body weight, detection and treatment of diseases, appropriate immunization and reviewing the ongoing medication. The aim of counselling is also to control chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and seizures to ensure that your pregnancy is smooth and safe.

However, one of the most common challenges faced with preconception counselling is that it doesn’t happen since most pregnancies are unplanned. Health experts say that preconception counselling should be made a part of general healthcare for women of the reproductive age as at least half of the pregnancies are unplanned and there remains no scope for counselling.

Another issue is that couples fail to understand the significance of preconception counselling. They take many biological conditions easily and never analyse the underlying problems.
