“I don’t care, as long as the baby is healthy.”
This is our response in almost all cases, even if we already have 4 daughters or 3 sons because we know that healthy children are the greatest prize in our life.
And although health is a true gift from God, we cannot dismiss the impact of our diet and lifestyle on our own health and now we know, the health of our babies growing within us. We can affect their physical and emotional health by choices that we make from even before they are conceived. Science has shown that we can no longer believe it is just “luck” responsible for healthy children.
The Midwives of New Jersey have invited a nationally-known speaker to teach the families of New Jersey how to improve their children’s potential for health. Laurel Wilson will talk to you about how our family’s history of cancer or diabetes or obesity does not need to be expressed in our children. She will discussed the ability to “turn on” and “turn off” genes in order to express health.
She will discuss how your diet in pregnancy and lactation will affect your baby’s palate for healthy foods. You really don’t have to feed your children chicken fingers and Puffs only, they can enjoy a wide range of healthy foods and further improve their health.
Laurel is an entertaining, energetic speaker. We are hoping to educate as many families as possible on Saturday, January 25th. We will enjoy Laurel’s talk and a continental breakfast between 9am – 12 Noon.
