Have you started to look at your lifestyle and plan to take folic acid in advance. Why not consider our pre-pregnancy screening options. These are specialist pre-natal care packages that can be offered at Cosmopolitan Medical/JA Medical to assist mums to be who are planning to start a family. They are panels of tests that can be carried out before conception that can give peace of mind that individuals are in good health and some protection can be provided during future pregnancies.

 

Having these tests before conception not only provides reassurance it allows the individual to be vaccinated against diseases such as Rubella and Chickenpox or being successfully treated for Chlamydia before conception, all of which can be extremely harmful to unborn children.

HIV and Rubella - these tests are free on the NHS.

 

However when you are pregnant you cannot receive live vaccinations such as Varicella (Chickenpox) or Rubella, if you are aware in advance of pregnancy, courses of vaccinations can be completed, providing sufficient immunity.

 

Please note that blood results can take up to 4 working days to return. If courses of vaccinations are recommended it will be advised to delay conception for approximately 4 months, allowing time for vaccinations to be administered and a 3 month gap to occur between last vaccination and conception.
