Congratulations! Pregnancy is a very special time in your life and caring for the little one forming within you is rightfully a top priority.

Do you find yourself wondering about the following pregnancy related topics?

According to Elizabeth Somer, RD, "Recent research shows that the developing baby is much more sensitive to the mother's nutritional status than previously thought, with the consequences not always manifesting until later in life. This phenomenon is called 'programming,' which means that poor intake of one or more essential nutrients during critical periods in an organ's growth can permanently alter or program the structure, size or function of that organ."
