Pre-Conceptual Counseling

in-vitro fertilizationObGyn Chico Dr. Raleigh Unterseher consults with his patients regularly to make sure that they are in their finest possible health before they conceive or begin their in-vitro fertilization procedure.

Regardless of your individual needs, we help our patients embrace their pregnancy and go through childbirth in the healthiest way possible. We believe that the key to the successful delivery of a healthy baby is a healthy mother.

Preconception Care

Preconception care is offered by your ObGyn Chico to reduce the possibility of complications for both the mother and her child.  It is usually recommended for patients who are being treated for any condition that may result in a high-risk pregnancy, such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes or sickle cell anemia.

Preconception care is also recommended for women who are seeking counseling in order to be properly prepared for pregnancy and childbirth.

The Steps to Ensuring Total Wellness

  • A comprehensive health screening is the first step your ObGyn Chico will take in your preconception care. This screening may require numerous visits to our office, but the benefits to the mother and child are numerous.

  • In addition to a complete medical history, Pap smear and cholesterol/diabetes screening, we’ll also appraise your complete family health history and perform HIV and STD screening.  In addition, we’ll also test for excessive use of any substances such as alcohol, drugs and/or over-the-counter medications.

  • After he has finished your checkup and health assessment, your ObGyn Chico will work with you to put a set of goals in place for a healthy pregnancy, including a summary of all your nutritional and medical needs.

  • Your ObGyn will offer additional counseling to any woman who has been identified as being at risk, such as having a history of miscarriage, stillbirth or premature birth.
