Only few people know that the first 1000 days of life – and more specifically the 270 days of pregnancy – represent an extraordinary opportunity to shape the health of a human being for a lifetime. Scientists call this “Nutritional Programming”.
BabyBelly.org is an independent blog taking this cutting-edge science out of the lab and translating it into practical nutrition advice for moms-to-be. BabyBelly wishes to empower women to get nutrition right before and during pregnancy so that they can give their babies a lifelong health advantage.
The content of this website was put together by a senior nutritionist and communication expert, Birgit Reinshagen, active in the area of maternal and early childhood nutrition for more than 25 years. Birgit holds a Master in Nutrition and has worked as Communication Strategist in various Agencies and the Food Industry during her entire professional career.
Her daughter, Mia Reinshagen, a talented young communication designer for digital & social media developed the graphical design for BabyBelly Nutrition and its social media pages on Instagram and Facebook.
We believe that every woman should have access to education.
