Whether you are single, starting off as a new family or have grown children, choosing personal care and household products that are safe for you and your family makes sense.
This is an important time in your baby's life. What you eat and put on your body goes through the umbilical cord and placenta directly to the amniotic fluid your baby bathes in.
More and more mothers are concerned about the toxic chemicals their babies and children are exposed to in every day products and surroundings.
"An analysis of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data from 2003–2004 found that virtually every pregnant woman in the United States is exposed to at least 43 different chemicals. Chemicals in pregnant women can cross the placenta, and in some cases, can accumulate in the fetus, resulting in higher fetal exposure than maternal exposure. Prenatal exposure to environmental chemicals is linked to various adverse health consequences, and patient exposure at any point in time can lead to harmful reproductive health outcomes."
