Healthy Baby Secrets by Brittany Blockman, MD, MA, FAAP
Pregnancy is an exciting journey, and yet when I was pregnant, I felt lost-even as an integrative pediatrician. I had so many questions:
- How can I optimize my baby’s health and development before she is born?
- What are the best foods to eat and the most important supplements to take to enhance my baby’s health?
- How can I reduce the risk of pre-term labor? And so on…
I wanted someone to guide me through the latest science on how to optimize my baby’s health, brain, and body before she was born.
As an integrative pediatrician, I knew that researchers were beginning to understand how to optimize a baby’s health prenatally and in early life. However, when I was pregnant, I became acutely aware that parents are unable to access this information, and if they are, it’s often not early enough in their child’s life to make a difference. This is partly because our health system is not set up to work with pediatricians before children are born-and in particular, a pediatrician who is knowledgeable about integrative prenatal pediatric care.
I want to change all of this through a new medical service I am launching. MotherWit Integrative Medicine’s Healthy Baby Secrets program
