You may wonder why a pediatric clinic would host an event concerning a wellness pregnancy. If you’ve been reading our monthly articles, you know that we are very concerned about the rise of chronic illnesses in children. A healthy mother has a much better chance of giving birth to a healthy child. Because of our toxic and hectic environment, the obstacles to a healthy adult—and consequently, a healthy baby—are greater now than they ever have been.
As an organization that is deeply concerned with kids’ health, it is part of our mission to help moms and dads responsibly plan for their families. This helps nurture healthy families of the future—a goal to which we are dedicated.
The Elements of a Wellness Pregnancy
Did you know that more than 50% of pregnancies are not planned and most are discovered between the sixth and eighth week? This means you must analyze certain lifestyle choices and actions that you wouldn’t normally think twice about—unless you plan to start a family.
For example, even over-the-counter drugs can have a negative effect on a developing baby. So if you plan to be a parent, there are a few things that would be helpful to know.
This workshop will go over a few key areas that help nurture a wellness pregnancy and a healthy newborn.
