Preconception health is important for men, too. It means choosing to get and stay as healthy as possible―and helping others to do the same as well.
As a partner, it means encouraging and supporting the health of your partner. As a father, it means protecting your children.
Preconception health and health care focuses on taking steps now to protect the health of a baby in the future. However, preconception health is important for all women and men, whether or not they plan to have a baby one day.
It’s really important to have a plan and take action. Every woman, man, and couple can benefit from having a reproductive life plan based on her, his, or their own personal values, goals, and resources.
