If you are planning a pregnancy, or are currently pregnant, this test aims at supporting good outcomes for you and your baby during the gestational period, and even much later on in your offspring’s life.
The single genes we test in the specific areas appearing in the GrowBaby panel will also exert their effects throughout your child’s lifetime, in a multitude of developing biological systems.
By examining the genes influencing your health during pregnancy you can minimize your risk for developing common gestational problems such as diabetes and eclampsia, as well as gain insight into related vulnerable areas in your baby. The advice provided to you, if followed, will benefit your child too.
For example, maternal stress plays a big part in infant behavior. Stress hormones can cross the placenta and influence infant behavioral disorders. Safe supplemental and lifestyle interventions, as well as dietary inclusions, are offered in this report to guide you on minimizing the effects of stress.
Based on your folate needs you may also require more specific dietary folate support.
Many infants suffer with childhood allergies which can be a result of unbalanced maternal detoxification processes during pregnancy. Over-nutrition during pregnancy plays a role in birth weight and childhood obesity, while nutritional shortfalls contribute to a failure to thrive.
These, and a number of other important areas, are discussed in the GrowBaby report and appropriate suggestions are provided to minimise unwanted possible gene influences, while enhancing the effects you'd like.
*Cost includes 1 x test kit (delivery & collection) and 1 x telephonic/online consultation with our accredited practitioner.
