What you choose matters. You’ve stopped the wine sipping, take-out sushi, soft cheeses and you’re doing the sharp turn away from smokers.
But still, even before your baby's born she can be exposed to carcinogens and hormone disruptors. Gross.
Companies don’t care
Not entirely true, but there are definitely some companies out there who only care about their bottom line. They’ll use cheap ingredients proven to potentially cause harm in our bods.
Caveat emptor, mamas! (Let the buyer beware) You need to find the companies that do care, and stick with them.
Fragrance is considered a high health hazard by EWG and has “been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system.” source
Triclosan is an endocrine disruptor, meaning it can really mess up your hormones. (Who needs that on top of all your other pregnant hormones?)
It's also linked to breast cancer. source
Protect your little one before she's born
We know you can’t avoid everything around you.
So what can you do? Reduce the amount of exposure you're getting to these harsh chemicals.
How? By choosing more natural products to use during and after pregnancy.
Great, but what's the cost?
Natural, organic, non-toxic: aren’t these things always more expensive?
Typically, but not always. Cost comparisons are shown throughout the challenge. A lot of smaller companies doing the right thing are spending less on advertising and more on better ingredients.
We give you best hacks for getting the lowest-cost options.

Hi, I'm Jen
Let me tell you a story about something that totally surprised me. My friend Emily has about the cleanest diet I’ve ever seen. She's got the backyard veggie and herb garden, eats organic whole foods, grass fed meat and so on. You know the one.
A few years back, I was at her house using the bathroom and noticed Dial hand soap. A sneak peek into her shower showed Pantene shampoo and conditioner.
It didn't fit. After a conversation with her she admitted she focuses intensely on her diet and knows it's clean.
But what about what she puts ON her body? She didn't know where to start.
I told her we could figure it out together. Admittedly since I was newly pregnant at the time, it was kinda more for me than her. But anyways... my journey began.
As it turns out, what you put on your body gets absorbed through your skin and can also affect your baby. I spent many, many hours digging into what you should really avoid and why.
Doing this while pregnant is kinda like running a marathon on zero sleep.
These were the days before EWG (Environmental Working Group) existed. It’s a little easier today, but still overwhelming to someone who’s looking to make simple swaps without spending a fortune.
I created this challenge to help other mamas just like me.
