We offer preconception counselling and advice to any patient who wishes to prepare for having a family and plans to optimise their health in order to achieve healthy parenting and a healthy baby. The nursing team offer a standard well person check, which can form a useful part of this complete package. We also offer advice to any patient with questions and concerns about their fertility.
If you are worried you may be having difficulty getting pregnant we can offer counselling and can take a history and start appropriate tests. We try to see both partners and couples are encouraged to approach the problem together and must understand that they will both need investigation. We also ensure prompt and appropriate referral and advice on local services available in secondary for investigation and treatment if required.
