Global Prenatal Initiative
- GPI 2014.
The McCarrison Society endorses both these initiatives, but we have concerns about the lack of emphasis on Maternal Nutrition. Please comment below.
  • As the brain has its beginning at conception ie before a sign of pregnancy is manifest,it is remarkable that most are so good.It is tragic that it is not common knowledge.

  • Many years ago I met Simon House at a Conference of the International Society for Prenatal Psychology and Medicine (ISPPM) in Heidelberg. During all those years Simon has been the only member to speak up for more emphasis onto nutrition for the pregnant mother as one of the cornerstones of a healthy next generation. He presented many lectures who were always so convincing about the importance of this aspect when caring for pregnant women. As a midwife in homebirthing I try to lead the mothers' attention to this vital issue for her little unborn child, a task made easier because homebirth parents mostly belong to the "health oriented group" of parents. I shall nevertheless again inform colleagues at the different meetings to keep the fires burning, so to speak.
    I am overwhelmed at the wealth of information to be found in these pages. Thanks to all who did the writing and gathering!
