The Health of Your Child is Entirely Up to You

THE HEALTH OF YOUR CHILD BEGINS BEFORE YOU GET PREGNANT.  When you really think about it, our system of healthcare really is screwed up.  The body does not respect the artificial barriers of specialties as we have designated them.  The impact of an OB/GYN making the recommendation for a couple looking to get pregnant to achieve and maintain a healthy weight has an impact on the pediatric practice and later the cardiology and endocrinology practice.  And yet most OB/GYNs do not seem to be aware of the long term ramifications of pregnancy on the child.  So long as the baby is delivered and everybody seems okay, it is viewed as a successful outcome.  Even more so if artificial reproductive technologies were used.  But the other specialists do not see the patient until the risk factors have been present for years, sometimes decades.  Is it no wonder why those of us that practice functional medicine seem to be eternally pulling our hair out in frustration at “healthcare?”
