Pregnancy is a time when nutritional needs are higher, and meeting those needs has a positive effect on the health of both the mother and her unborn baby. Recent clinical studies and reviews have shown a positive association between a healthy diet during the periods of preconception and pregnancy, and improved birth outcomes. Babies born to well-nourished mothers are more likely to be conceived more easily, be carried to term, be born in robust health, feed vigorously, grow optimally, and be alert and responsive. With this, the mother can be physically and emotionally in control transition through the post conception period. As a result high-quality nutrition can be viewed as one of the manageable gifts a mother-to-be can give to herself, her unborn baby and her family. This above-average start brings with it health advantages that last a lifetime.

As times of preconception and pregnancy are periods of increased interest, need and search for nutrition-related information, this seminar aim to provide women with simple, accurate and implementable nutritional information for the key conception, birth and beyond stages.

The one and a half to two-hour seminars are free and non-profit. The natural health practitioners listed above will speak on the topics of detoxification and key vitamins and minerals required for mother and baby during the pre-, during and post-conception stages. There will also be education and information on hormonal health, the influence of stress on the conception process and budget concerns in regard to what small but effective changes can be made cheaply.

A panel/Q&A discussion will also take place following each speaker.

The seminars will be filmed, with an edited version being available online to watch again afterwards. In addition, basic informational handouts will also be produced for those to take away, review and pass on.
