Pregnancy is one of the most valuable times in a growing baby’s life. It is within pregnancy that babies will begin to grow things such as finger nails all the way to things like their organs. I chose this article by about the under consumption by mothers during pregnancy leading to heart health issues in infants because although my career focus is not scientific, it is on infants and toddlers. They are so near and dear to my heart and their health is the most important aspect of their young life.
