Healthy babies & future generations - they start with us.

Healthy babies and future generations — it all starts with us.


What do I mean? Let’s talk about the research behind this statement.


Fetal programming is a concept proposed by Dr. David Barker. This suggests that a baby's organs and critical functions in the body can be influenced by the environment they experience during pregnancy.


Any adaptations in utero can create permanent structural, physiological and metabolic changes that act as a baby's "set point." And baby's health later in life can unfold depending on their physiological and metabolic programming. (Kwon et al)


There’s a similar concept called "imprinting." This is an epigenetic process that takes place during pregnancy and can be determined by:


↬Nutrient Status

↬Hormonal Balance

↬Microbiome Health




Now, I know this information might be overwhelming for some. It can be a lot to take in.


When we take a step back and look at the bigger picture, it can also be empowering.


The beauty of this information is that it puts the power back in our hands.


It’s an opportunity. And if we seize it, what comes next could be so amazing — for generations to come.


Some food for thought!


The message of this post is hope. I understand that not everyone’s fertility journey is the same. My intention here is not to diminish anyone’s experience struggling with their health and/or fertility. 💗
