"Chris Kresser’s Healthy Baby Code compiles the most important information available on fertility, gestation, and breastfeeding. He has studied the wisdom of our ancestral past, as well as the molecular underpinnings of effective nutrition and lifestyle to help you not only conceive, but set the stage for the healthiest baby possible." Robb WolfAuthor of NY Times Bestseller The Paleo Solution
"Chris Kresser has a knack for translating highly technical, complex facts and information into a format that the typical layperson can easily understand and comprehend. As an OB/GYN and Paleo lifestyle enthusiast, fertility and reproductive health are extremely important to my patients and me." Michele M. BlackwellMD (OB.GYN) F.A.C.O.G.
Thousands of people have used this course over the last 10 years. Many of them have written to us to share their happy news as a result of following this approach. But, the reason I am so confident recommending this course to you is because it is exactly how my wife and I were able to overcome our fertility issues and realize our own dreams of having a healthy, beautiful baby.
When my wife Elanne and I decided we were ready to have our first child, it turned out not to be as easy as we had hoped. We knew it might be more difficult for us than most, as Elanne had been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition and was 38 years old by the time we started trying. Many doctors would have advised us not even to try in these circumstances.
But as a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist and a researcher and writer in the field of nutrition and health, I had a bias toward finding a natural solution. Elanne also wanted to get pregnant without drugs or IVF if possible. So I dove into the scientific literature. I read countless studies in peer-reviewed journals. I poured over 4-inch thick textbooks on all aspects of reproductive health. I consulted with experts in the field. And of course I relied on my own experience of more than 10 years of deep investigation into nutrition and health.
Then, the magic happened: Elanne and I conceived!
In the summer of 2011 Elanne gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl, weighing 8 lbs., 3 ounces. Our midwife told us she was one of the most engaged, alert and vibrant newborns she had ever helped deliver in 35 years of practice.
My wife’s diet before and during pregnancy (which is the same approach I teach in this Healthy Baby Code course) was directly responsible for that.
The recommendations made in Healthy Baby Code are drawn from thousands of generations of evolutionary wisdom and hundreds of peer-reviewed studies published in major medical journals.
In this 6-part, self-study course, we look at the diets of traditional cultures with high rates of fertility, easy births, and a complete absence of most of our modern diseases.
We combine this ancient wisdom—honed and improved over 77,000 generations of evolution—together with specific nutrients modern science tells us are essential for conception and pregnancy. We have tools today that our traditional ancestors lacked, and we can use these tools to fill in the gaps of their knowledge.
Bridging traditional wisdom and cutting-edge modern science ensures that the Healthy Baby Code approach is not only highly effective but also safe for both the mother and baby.
This home study course is broken down into 6 modules (20 to 25 minutes each) designed to make the material as accessible and easy to digest as possible. PDF transcripts and MP3 recordings of each module are included for those who prefer reading or listening to watching videos.
Discover how proper nutrition contributes to the lifelong health of your baby (the "developmental origins theory"), the sacred fertility foods used by traditional cultures around the world, and how to avoid the alarming increase in infertility and birth complications in the modern world.
Learn how much protein, fat, and carbohydrate your baby needs and why the type of each macronutrient may be even more important than the amount. Find out which fats are best for you and your baby (you might be surprised!), why too much fructose can be harmful, and why women naturally crave less protein during pregnancy.
Understand exactly which vitamins and minerals are critical for your health and the health of your baby (and which are potentially harmful), where to find them in foods, when it’s necessary to supplement, and what dosage of each you need.
Learn how four commonly eaten classes of foods contribute to infertility and poor health during and after pregnancy for both mothers and their babies, and how to replace these foods with nourishing, nutrient-dense alternatives.
Learn how long you should breastfeed, the key guidelines for introducing foods, which foods to introduce when, and how to minimize the risk of allergies, food reactions, and autoimmunity.
Combine everything you’ve learned into a clear, focused strategy for supercharging your fertility, promoting a healthy pregnancy, and raising a vibrant, beautiful baby.
"Chris navigates the intimidating and contradictory nutrition research using common sense, traditional wisdom, and modern scientific acumen." Emily DeansClinical Instructor, M.D. Harvard Medical School
"Chris Kresser sifts through all the nutritional guidance available and then succinctly writes on everything significant and plausible. He is one of only a handful of gurus I turn to when researching nutritional guidance for our blog (we are a CrossFit affiliate) and our family." Ginger SladkyLandstuhl, Germany
To help make it easy for you to apply this to your busy life in a practical way, I've also included these handy Cheat Sheets for quick reminders of the most frequently needed information—from how to shop, what to eat, and snack suggestions, to lists of healthy fats, and advice about how to eat gluten-free
In addition to the core content, Healthy Baby Code also includes a variety of extras to help you put the principles you'll learn in the core modules into practice right away. These include: quick reference charts, a resource list, meal plans & recipes, and an audio interview with frequently asked questions.
Above and beyond these extras, I'm also including the bonus material to help you get even more out of this program and maximize your chances of having the healthiest baby you can have. The bonus material includes: Deep Relaxation Program for Moms- and Dads-to-Be, and Mindful Movements for Fertility and Pregnancy.
Just a single cycle of in vitro fertilization (IVF) can run upwards of $20,000. Considering that some couples may need up to 3 cycles to get pregnant (without any guarantee it will work), and considering the cost of consultations with fertility specialists that typically run $600 to $1,500 or more and aren’t covered by insurance, it’s not hard to imagine spending more than $60,000 out-of-pocket and still not end up with the baby you’ve dreamed of.
Healthy Baby Code offers a more natural, lower-tech, lower-cost alternative or complement to the conventional “high-tech” route. In some cases, making the changes suggested in this course—which costs about the same as a daily Starbucks latte and a muffin for a month—could eliminate the need for IVF and potentially save you tens of thousands of dollars.
"Being a Paleo-eater for over a year and still having health issues, Chris’s knowledge and method of researching all angles of various topics has been super helpful. Even though I thought I knew a lot about nutrition, hormones, sleep, exercise, etc., every time I refer to one of Chris’s articles or podcasts, I learn something new. I follow every bit of info he puts out to help myself and my clients." Kari WolskyWashington, DC
"Chris has an amazing ability to distill complex information into easily digestible bites. As a student nurse-midwife, I was able to refine my knowledge of nutritional principals and further integrate essential information into my practice. I highly recommend Chris' workshop to families in their childbearing years as well as practitioners." Debbie Gipsman RoismanNurse-Midwife
