The role of obstetrics and gynecology in pregnancy planning in Katy

Obstetrics Gynecology in Katy Tx Area

Whether you are becoming a first time mom, or growing your family, pregnancy can be one of the most exciting, and frightening events of your life. Naturally, you want to do everything in your power to give your baby a great start in life. One of the most important things you can do for yourself and your child is see a doctor early, and maintain regular visits throughout pregnancy

Initial appointment

Moms in Katy, TX, count on Dr. Taryll Jenkins for compassionate, quality care. The best time to schedule a visit is before you become pregnant. Many foods, habits, medications, or illnesses can endanger your baby, even before he or she is conceived. A comprehensive preconception evaluation can identify these factors.

It is important to be honest and thorough in providing relevant information, and answering questions. Prior to your appointment, it may be helpful to write down a list of questions that you want to ask, and information you need to provide. Be sure to tell the doctor about:

  • Any medications you are taking, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and dietary supplements, even those labeled as natural or herbal
  • Habits such as drinking, smoking, or any kind of substance abuse
  • Past miscarriages or problematic pregnancies
  • High stress level at home or work
  • Chemical exposure or heavy labor associated with your job
  • Existing medical conditions

Preparing for pregnancy

Your health and any substances in your body at the time of conception can have an impact on your baby before you realize that you are pregnant. Some risk factors are unavoidable, such as diabetes or past ectopic pregnancies. Dr. Jenkins will explain the risks, as well as how they can be minimized by maintaining optimal health. In some situations, he will recommend frequent check-ups or testing more frequently during pregnancy.

Many of complications and risks to your child’s health can be avoided. Dr. Jenkins will discuss topics such as proper nutrition, exercise needs and limitations, dietary supplements, and avoiding illness. He may recommend making changes to your habits or environment. In some cases, prescription medications will need to be discontinued or altered. Effective preconception and prenatal care requires a cooperative effort between you, your OBGYN, your general physician, and any specialists you see.
