BabyBelly Nutrition: Democratizing Science

We believe in science. We believe knowledge must inform decisions.

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 Nutrition is an independent blog taking this cutting-edge science out of the lab and translating it into practical nutrition advice for moms and moms-to-be.

We are empowering women to use food as medicine and get their nutrition right before and during pregnancy – when it matters most.
