With all the information and intervention available in the modern world relating to healthy pregnancy, my philosophy is simple: Nature knows how to make well babies.

How to make a great baby
Never before in the history of the world have human beings had access to so much health science – and been so unwell. Our babies are sick, our mums are lacking vitality and our dads are dangerously close to infertile – unhealthy has become the new normal.
Yet we struggle on, doing the same things over and over and achieving ever-deteriorating results. Less than 5% of births ought to involve intervention – yet the statistics throughout the western world indicate the converse is true: in reality, there is some kind of intervention in 95% of births.
Why? Myriad reasons that range from ignorance (well-meaning and blind) to power and control, from profits to modern mythologies. But rather than turn our attention to what is wrong – we’re focussing our energies and attentions on what is right.
The following pages lead you through the steps to growing a great baby – and serve as a support system for the Heather Says Pregnancy App.
