Before Pregnancy

If you are trying to have a baby, it is always a good idea to plan early. Whether it’s your first child or you previously had a difficult pregnancy, it is important to get your mind and body ready.

Make sure to have discussions with your OB/GYN to discuss your medical and family history. If you might have a complex pregnancy due to genetic conditions in your family or current medical issues, Valley Children’s expert team of maternal-fetal specialists and geneticists can help.

Our board-certified specialists can review your medical history and offer preconception counseling or genetic counseling to address any risks that might affect your pregnancy.
