HOW TO CONFER IMMUNITY ON YOUR UNBORN BABY IF YOU'RE
PREGNANT AND WHAT DO DO AFTER BIRTH
Confer immunity on your unborn baby:
1. Keep following the nutrition and exercise recommendations above.
2.Have a vaginal birth. Your birth canal
is full of immune substances that your baby will absorb will traveling down it that confers immunity on your newborn. A C-section
provides none of them nor does it offer the essential closeness after birth between mother and child.
Your breast milk is the preferred food for your baby; drinking the milk of another species, the cow, can lead to allergies
and other threats.
