Planning to start a family?

Deciding to start or extend your family is an exciting, but sometimes confusing time. Your pharmacist is a qualified professional who can provide advice and support from preconception to beyond delivery.

Preconception and pregnancy care

Good nutrition and health are essential for a healthy pregnancy and birth. Your family pharmacist can help you on your path to parenthood by:

  • optimising your general health
  • providing fertility advice
  • recommending the right pregnancy test and support for you
  • reviewing your medications to make sure they don’t harm you or your baby
  • recommending nutritional supplements as part of a balanced diet.
