Advantages of Pre Pregnancy Planning

While you can't always predict exactly when you're going to get pregnant, pre planning before you conceive is a good idea physically, emotionally and financially. Here's how you can prepare yourself as much as possible for the birth of a baby.

Make sure you're in optimal health. Before you conceive, schedule an appointment with a physician to do pre pregnancy testing. Your doctor will do a pelvic exam, Pap test, and probably blood and urine tests to determine if you have various health problems that could interfere with a healthy pregnancy. Discuss your family health with your doctor including genetic abnormalities, chronic illnesses and unexplained deaths.

You are also responsible for your own health. If you smoke, drink alcohol or do recreational drugs, you need to stop before you get pregnant. Pregnancy is stressful, and many women find it very hard to stop smoking or having a drink once they've conceived. Alcohol, drugs and cigarettes can cause serious health complications for you and your baby, so it's better to quit now when things are less stressful.

Include your partner in your pre pregnancy planning. First, talk about the prospect of having a baby. How does your partner feel about having a baby? If he or she is not ready, or doesn't want a child, you need to re-evaluate the timing or the relationship. What are your reasons for having a child? The birth of a baby is an exciting and wonderful time, but it takes a lot of work and can greatly impact your relationship. Don't consider a baby to save your failing marriage, or because you're lonely in your relationship.

It's also the ideal time to talk about the division of labor in the home. It's better to discuss who will be responsible for different aspects of baby care or house cleaning before you're standing in a messy kitchen with a crying baby. You don't need to finalize every single chore, but have a basic idea of what each person expects and feels is fair when it comes to cleaning and cooking. The more you talk about the future with your baby, the stronger your relationship will be when he or she arrives.

Consider your finances. Although many people raise children on a tight income, if you can wait until you're financially stable to have a baby, you'll reduce a lot of daily stress. Talk to a financial advisor about investments for retirement and college planning, and set up a fund for your future child if possible.

It's also essential that you and your partner discuss work ...
