Summarizes the important features of the book, “The Prenatal Prescription,” by Peter Nathanielsz, M.D., Ph.D. The main theme of the book is that many chronic health effects are programmed early on in the womb. Women can influence this to a large extent by following a healthy lifestyle when pregnant (i.e. providing good nutrition to the fetus, reducing maternal stress, avoiding alcohol, medication (herbal/OTC and prescription) and caffeine)
