Women’s Excellence Now Scheduling Annual Gynecological, Preconception and Prenatal Visits in Birmingham, Michigan; Regular Healthcare Visits Can Decrease Birth Defects

Birmingham, Michigan (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a woman can increase her own chances of having a healthy baby by managing health conditions and adopting healthy behaviors before becoming pregnant. This is important because many birth defects happen very early during pregnancy, sometimes before a woman even knows she is pregnant. According to Jonathan Zaidan, MD, FACOG, founder and physician at Women’s Excellence, “Women’s Excellence is committed to providing optimal preconception and prenatal care to each and every patient to help reduce the incidence of birth defects”.

Health of the mother is of upmost importance prior to pregnancy and during pregnancy. Women considering pregnancy should ensure that they are getting enough folic acid every day to prevent neural tube defects. Women should avoid alcohol, cigarettes, and street drugs during pregnancy. Maternal infections during pregnancy can be harmful to the fetus and should be treated immediately. Women should disclose the regular medications they take to their healthcare provider prior to conception if possible and should stay current with routine vaccinations to prevent illness during pregnancy. Obesity increases a pregnant women’s risk of several serious birth defects for her baby, so weight loss prior to pregnancy is recommended. If a woman is diabetic, poor control of diabetes during pregnancy also increases the risk for birth defects and care should be taken to keep blood sugars under control.

Pregnancy is an exciting time, but it also can be stressful. Women can and should prepare themselves for a healthy pregnancy. A woman should be sure to see her doctor when planning a pregnancy and start prenatal care as soon as she thinks that she is pregnant. It is important to see the doctor regularly throughout pregnancy, so a woman should keep all her prenatal care appointments. “At Women’s Excellence, we provide a team of quality physicians, nurse practitioners, and midwives to ensure optimal health of the mother and child before, during, and even after the child bearing process”, concluded Dr. Zaidan.
