Preconception Health

Healthy Children & Families

The Preconception Health initiative promotes healthy lifestyles in the preconception period (before pregnancy) for all people 18–44 years of age.

As few people seek care or health information before they become pregnant, and almost half of all pregnancies in Canada are intended, healthy lifestyle and preconception health is important.

The website targets adults who are ready to start planning a pregnancy and those not ready to have a baby. The website highlights healthy behaviours and provides information on modifiable risk factors that affect reproductive health outcomes in a user-friendly question and answer format. Interactive tools and local resources are also provided on the website.
