What are the most pressing problems facing new parents today? As the world has gotten increasingly more complicated, so has parenting. New parents are concerned about pervasive toxins in the environment and anxious to raise their children in ways that will protect them as well as safeguard our already-fragile world.
There is nothing more hopeful than choosing to have a child. When we make that decision, we say “I believe the future is worth bringing a person into.” We create the neurological capacity for hope. Parents by their nature get something right that many environmentalists get wrong: hope is the best motivator for change… We always have the capacity for change, but having a baby changes everything. We will do absolutely anything to keep that baby safe.
Vancouver-based Manda Aufochs Gillespie, The Green Mama, discusses a variety of topics that affect the health and well-being of our children. You'll find help getting back to the basics, at a time when the “basics” are being redefined: clean air, nutritious food, simple play, healthy indoor and outdoor environments, and less stuff. Manda covers prenatal care for mothers-to-be, detoxifying the nursery, cloth versus disposable diapers, baby skincare, nutritious baby food, children's toys, and car seats. The Green Mama helps parents to become what they were always meant to be: experts on the care of their own children.
