Hi , Couple ( specially women ) should undergo pre conceptional screening and counseling . Growth of the fetus/baby is highly influenced by health and well being of mother. Probable risks that a baby might encounter wil be explained to you in counselling.And also need for folic acid supplements wil be started accordingly.
