Preconception: taking prenatal vitamins before you conceive and having your spouse take a multivitamin as well. You can also use ovulation prediction kits to help time when you are most likely to conceive. Lastly have an OB provider picked out that will take you for early prenatal care.

Dr.Lawson is correct. Also, both of you should be sure you are in good health. Eat properly and establish an exercise routing several months, avoid drugs, alcohol, tobacco, untested or poorly tested supplements before trying. When you are in the best condition, you increase the odds of make the healthiest child
