Your Preconception Journey: How Can We Assist You?

Preconception counselling is a vital part of your journey to parenthood. To provide you with the best care possible, we’d like to learn more about your thoughts and plans for starting a family:

  1. Are you planning to start a family and have you considered preconception counselling?
  2. Do you have any pre-existing health conditions or concerns that may impact your ability to conceive or have a healthy pregnancy?
  3. Have you discussed your plans for parenthood with your partner or any specific fertility goals?

The Importance of Preconception Counselling: Nurturing Your Parenthood Dreams

Preconception counselling is a valuable process that prepares you physically and emotionally for the journey of parenthood. It is a proactive step that focuses on addressing any health concerns, optimising fertility, and creating a nurturing environment for your future baby. Our caring and understanding approach ensures that you feel fully supported as you embark on this life-changing endeavour.

Why Preconception Counselling is Necessary:

Optimising Fertility:

Preconception counselling provides an opportunity to assess and optimise both partners’ fertility factors, increasing the likelihood of conception.


Addressing Health Concerns:

If you, or your partner have any pre-existing health conditions that may affect pregnancy or childbirth, preconception counselling helps identify and manage these concerns.

Nutritional Guidance:

Proper nutrition plays a significant role in fertility and healthy pregnancies. We’ll provide guidance on maintaining a balanced diet.

Identifying Risk Factors:

Preconception counselling allows us to identify potential risk factors and develop strategies to mitigate them.

Emotional Support:

The journey to parenthood can be emotionally challenging. Our counselling sessions provide a safe space to express your feelings and concerns.

The Preconception Counselling Process: Caring for Your Parenthood Dreams

The preconception counselling process with Dr Randall Hammond is a thoughtful and comprehensive experience that prioritises your well-being, fertility, and emotional readiness for parenthood.


Comprehensive Health Assessment:

During your preconception counselling appointment, Dr Hammond will conduct a thorough health assessment for both partners. This evaluation includes reviewing medical history, assessing overall health, and identifying any potential risk factors.

Optimising Fertility:

If you and your partner are trying to conceive, we’ll provide personalised guidance on optimising fertility factors. This may include lifestyle modifications, nutritional advice, and managing any underlying health conditions.

Addressing Health Concerns:

If you or your partner have any pre-existing health conditions that may affect pregnancy, we’ll work together to manage these concerns and ensure they are well-controlled before conception.

Family Planning:


Our team will assist you in planning for your future family, including discussions on the number of children you desire and the timing of pregnancies.
