Every year, around 34 million babies are born in the U.S. While having a healthy pregnancy and baby is a magical time, it’s not always the trouble-free event moms and dads hope for. Almost 3.4 million babies annually are born pre-term, and 324,000 have low birth weight. It’s estimated that about 15 percent of American babies have developmental problems such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, hearing loss, intellectual disability, vision impairment, etc. Fortunately, there’s a great deal you can do, even in advance of conception, to assure a healthier pregnancy and a healthier newborn.
