Pregnancy preparations and investigations with your GP may include folate supplements, PAP smear, immunisations, autosomal recessive carrier testing, and a review of your medication and medical history. Woman with a medical condition might need optimisation of their medication with a specialist prior to conception. If you have had a complicated obstetric history you might need further investigations with your obstetrician before proceeding with another pregnancy. You might need extra reassurance and monitoring.
