Tips For New & Expecting Parents
What every new and expectant parent should know
As an expectant or new parent, the to-do list is long! Mothers-to-be are taking care of themselves, dealing with the joys of pregnancy, “nesting” and trying to stay comfortable. Partners may be preparing nurseries, and trying to keep moms-to-be as happy as possible!
New parents are trying to enjoy their baby’s or toddler’s milestones while balancing other commitments, like work or older children.
During this time, are you thinking about your environment? Are you and your family breathing healthy air? Is the water you’re drinking free of toxins?
Babyproofing your home is an important part of nesting. Parents magazine article on Babyproofing Basics reminds you to:
- Cover outlets
- Lock cupboards
- Gate off stairs
- Perform general clean-up
But as you start to babyproof, have you thought about the indoor air that your infant, crawler, and (before you know it) toddler will be breathing? What about yourself?

…children and expectant mothers. Poor indoor air and water quality impacts these groups even more:
- Expectant moms – toxins impact the developing fetus due to rapid cell development during gestation
- Infants – lower lung volumes make this group especially suspectible to indoor air pollution
- Children – toddlers and young children experience rapid brain development making them more vulnerable to toxin exposures
