Your Developing Baby's Health

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.

Keep Baby Safe

More and more mothers are concerned about the toxic chemicals their babies and children are exposed to in every day products and surroundings.

EXPOSURE TO TOXIC ENVIRONMENTAL AGENTS

Committee Opinion by the American Congress of Obstetricians 

and Gynecologists (ACOG) Number 575, October 2013:


"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."

Coordinator

The coordinator of Fragrance Free Mama, Carolyn Joy Reisman,  has been a midwife for over thirty years. In the last ten years of caring for families, she developed a severe fragrance sensitivity. In a thriving practice, she was forced to develop a fragrance policy that would ensure her safety. The many families she has served have benefited immensely from her teachings about fragrance free living. The extraordinary aspect of introducing this important topic to her clients is that many mamas were already on board and others were eager to learn. Learning to live in a fragrant world FRAGRANCE FREE takes teamwork. It is an act of mutual respect for each other and the environment.
