Yes, I do want to become pregnant.


Your health before you become pregnant is critical for a healthy pregnancy and baby. If you want to get pregnant soon, a few things to consider are:

  • Start taking folic acid or a prenatal vitamin daily
  • Make sure your health conditions, like asthma or diabetes, are being managed
  • Ask if the medications you’re taking are safe during pregnancy

It’s best for your body and the health of your next baby to wait 18 months after giving birth to become pregnant again. Talk to your partner about your goals for your pregnancy and what steps you can take to stay as healthy as possible. Here are some steps you can take to ensure a healthy pregnancy:

  • Check that your vaccines are up to date
  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
  • Stay active! Try to maintain a healthy weight and engage in regular exercise
  • Make a dental appointment for your oral health
