GPP – Preconception nutrition

The period before pregnancy is increasingly recognised as a critical window of opportunity to reduce the risk of noncommunicable diseases in both mother and child. Sub-optimal nutritional status before pregnancy can affect egg and sperm quality; and from the moment of conception, the growing embryo is extremely sensitive to its nutritional environment. This GPP explores the topic of preconception nutrition and the health visitor’s role in supporting women and families with this.
