Pregnancy Special – Interview with Three Leading Specialists

In this month’s interview I’m excited to be able to give you not one but three interviews from leading specialists from around the world.

The series covers everything from conception to post-natal and beyond. It’s aimed at anyone who is thinking of trying for a baby, currently pregnant or already had a baby (even if this was many years ago!). There is an incredible about of advice and information provided in this free series and I’d love to here your feedback. I for one learnt an awful lot about this fascinating subject.

Conception and Pregnancy

First up is Erin Smith a leading Fetal Development Specialist from the USA. In this interview we cover:

  • The cutting edge (but little publicised) research that shows the impact of lifestyle on your babies health (this blew me away!)
  • What to consider when trying to conceive, or battling issues with fertility and miscarriage
  • Advice directly about the man’s impact on the babies health
  • What to do whilst pregnant.
