Protecting Your Baby-to-be: Preventing Birth Defects in the First Trimester

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 1995 - Medical - 312 pages
In Protecting Your Baby-to-Be, Margie Profet explains how pregnancy sickness has evolved to shield the embryo from potentially harmful plant toxins found in many vegetables and herb teas, in bacteria, and in other substances that can cause birth defects in the crucial first three months. She outlines good and bad foods, explains the process of how foods affect the embryo, and - for the first time - makes a woman who is feeling bad (from pregnancy sickness) feel good about it, because her distress is actually helping the embryo.
