Healthy Prenatal Development and Its Impact on the Early Years

March 14, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

This session will explore the impact of a healthy prenatal development on the early years (0 to 6 years old), as a foundation for lifelong health. It will cover what happens during fetal development and why it’s important to understand it, how to support a healthy pregnancy for better health outcomes for the mother and the baby, and how a healthy development in the early years can be a foundation in the subsequent years.
