Pre-pregnancy advice is important for women planning to get pregnant to optimize conditions necessary for a healthy pregnancy. Some diseases like diabetes may be discovered for the first time when the test for it is done before pregnancy (Glucose screening during pregnancy a.k.a. “sugar raise”). Blood sugar control before pregnancy decreases the possibilities of miscarriages and or fetal malformations. LMC assessment also involves general health recommendations such as cessation of smoking and weight monitoring. It also involves folic acid supplementation at least one month before pregnancy.
