Welcome to the HELMS study. You are now at the very beginning, trying to embark on this pregnancy journey with your husband. At this stage, you may be asked to attend 3 clinic visits and will be called twice during this 12-month period. If you fall pregnant during this 12-month period, it is possible that you may not have attend all clinic/phone call visits as it will depend on when you fall pregnant. Once you are pregnant during this 12-month period, you will be moved to the next stage of the HELMS study.
