Preparing for Pregnancy

If you're planning to become pregnant, you want to take the best care of you and your baby to help reduce risks. Proper health before deciding to become pregnant is almost as important as maintaining a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy. For example, you may begin taking a prenatal vitamin daily, prescribed by your Ob/Gyn, to make certain that your body gets the necessary nutrients and vitamins needed to nourish a healthy baby.

Many women don't realize they're pregnant until several weeks after conception and the first few weeks of pregnancy are crucial in a child's development. Planning ahead and taking care of yourself before becoming pregnant is the best thing you can do for you and your baby.

Pre-pregnancy Exam

We recommend you begin with a pre-pregnancy exam with an Ob/Gyn physician or Nurse Practitioner. ARC Ob/Gyn clinics are located in North, Central and South Austin, and Cedar Park.
