Optimising Maternal and Offspring Health during the First 1000+ (+to include preconception) days

Wednesday, March 27, 2024 10:05 - 10:45

Before and during pregnancy presents a unique opportunity in a women's life-course to optimise her current and future health, and that of her offspring. Despite preconception health being fundamental for maternal and child health it is a frequently forgotten area of healthcare and selfcare. What can we do to change this? What can we do to support development of healthier lives, and reduce the burden of preventable health issues for individuals, families and the health system during the First 1000+ days?
