Preconception Health: Ready or Not

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-11-15-10-am

The Preconception Health initiative promotes healthy lifestyles in the preconception period (before pregnancy) for men and women 18 – 44 years of age.

As few people seek care or health information before they become pregnant, and almost half of all pregnancies in Canada are not planned, healthy lifestyle and preconception health is important.

The online resource ReadyORNotAlberta.ca targets adults who are ‘ready’ to start planning a pregnancy and those ‘not ready’ to have a baby. The online resource highlights healthy behaviours and provides information to men and women on modifiable risk factors that affect reproductive health outcomes in a user-friendly question and answer format. Interactive tools and local resources are also provided on the website.

So…are you ready or not!?
