How do you make a baby? You just add male and female bits together, and nine months later out pops a cute little tike right? Sure, that's accurate at its core, but what if you want to make a healthy baby? A healthy baby is a whole other story altogether. There are so many things to consider,  such as the two-year detox process the mother (and even father) need to embark on before conception, including the cessation of birth control pills. Then there's the period of gestation, when the mother needs to protect and nourish her body, to increase the likelihood of complication-free birth. Once the first nine months have passed, and the time of actual delivery arrives, there are endless, and profoundly impactful considerations regarding where and how to deliver the baby. The most meaningful decision is of course whether or not to have a home or hospital birth- a natural, or medicalized experience. Both have their risks and benefits.

Then once the little one arrives into this world, parents are faced with a multitude of other choices around breastfeeding, vaccination, circumcision (male genital mutilation) and what to feed the kid once they've been weened. The whole ordeal is incredibly complicated and wrought with potential confusion and misinformation.

Thanks to our guest Dr. Robin Berzin, you will learn the ins and outs (no pun intended) of the whole reproductive process directly from a new mom, who's done all of the research herself from start to finish, applying the most cutting-edge knowledge available to date to her own birthing experience.  

Dr. Berzin not only been through it herself but has spent much of her adult life in pursuit of the most effective model of medical care, from the perspective of functional and western medicine. From this episode, you will gain laser-focus clarity on the different options available to you and your family, and how to navigate some the most meaningful and vital decisions of your life. Decisions that will directly affect your offspring, and quite possibly the generations that will follow.

Do the world a favor and please share this profound episode with someone you know who’s likely to procreate at some point. The power of information like this cannot be over estimated.

Here’s to making love. And happy, healthy babies.
