MOMS TO BE SHOULD BE TOXIC FREE
“The developing fetus is highly vulnerable to toxins in the environment that are passed across the placenta and the average newborn has
over 200 chemicals in its bloodstream at the time of birth”
The latest research shows that exposure to environmental toxins during critical times of fetal development can seriously influence the susceptibility to disease in later life. Not only this but certain toxins act as endocrine disruptors and can be responsible for damage to the reproductive and neurological systems of the developing fetus contributing to congenital birth defects, neurological disorders, low birth weight and preterm birth.
The fetus is especially vulnerable during the first trimester, often before the mother even realizes that she is pregnant. Likewise the newborn with its rapid growth and development is also at risk for any toxicity in the environment so preparing the home and limiting toxicity during pregnancy and after birth can have major benefits for the life of the child and its future.
