In this episode, we will cover:

  1. why Dr. Lipton refers to pregnancy as nature’s “Head Start” program and how the prenatal experience prepares the baby for the world that the mother perceives it to be
  2. how the environment that a child experiences in the first 6 years of life is so crucial to their health and wellbeing for the rest of their life
  3. what you as a parent can do right now to shift your environment so that your child grows up healthier and happier
