Every toxic particle in our immediate environment will have the potential of not only affecting us. Still, it can also be transferred to our future offspring, negatively affecting their physical and mental health. Even though at first all of the modern problems exposed will seem overwhelming, by the end, each chapter will have fully wrapped up possible and feasible solutions to deal with them. The only thing necessary will be cultivating a strong will to remain on the path toward a healthy lifestyle.

Lovely Wow! I felt that I sitting in on these super personal chats between her and her daughter about everything baby, starting right from the bump.

Andrea. October 2023
Vital for Future Parents: This book is an eye-opener. Health issues are on the rise, especially in the younger generation, and many of us wonder why without doing the research to find an answer.
Ganser did the research for us. This book dives into why kids are facing more health challenges than ever, and the things that we can control to help prevent or lessen the risk of our children developing them.
It’s not your typical health read either. It’s easy-to-grasp and a deep exploration of the many factors affecting not only the children, but the infertility struggles as well. This is perfect for expecting parents, conceiving parents, and even people who aren’t parents but want to aid in a friend or family member’s journey to creating new life.
I loved reading about the things in our bodies that can be passed down to our children, and how many things are actually in our control to change and aid the risks.
Like the blurb mentioned, it left me wondering why we don’t talk about these things, and why topics surrounding inferitlity or pregnancy are often seen as taboo or a place you don’t go. I feel it’s a topic that needs more conversation now than ever.
Wonderful book for all who are wanting, expecting, or just knowing parents. Hannah. October 2023
Prepare Yourself Before Preparing For The Baby: I believe that the parents’ health is a contributing factor in the total health of a baby even before its conception and more so during conception, barring other unforeseen circumstances and factors. And so, I gladly purchased this book as a requested gift for a young newly-wed nephew who is doing his best to be consciously responsible about having children and eagerly equipping himself with knowledge and skills. Doing so, empowers a future father, who will be more confident and just less anxious, because true enough, becoming a new parent does cause a lot of jitters. This book written by Dagmar Ganser, an accredited traditional medicine practitioner, is a very useful guide among the recently published books on babies. Having raised children myself, I should say that taking my health seriously was also meant for my children’s sake. I was quite fortunate that prevention did the work most times as the cure, but the work needed to be done first. The healthier my children were, the less hospital visits were made and there was less use of antibiotics and other medicines. It is true that rather than be overwhelmed about the whole concept, one must feel empowered, conquer the fears and the unknown, by educating oneself. When a parent sees that the child is healthy, then it’s one of the best things to be truly grateful for. What I immediately appreciated about this book is that in Section 1 Preparation, the first chapter began with “Let’s Begin With Men”, because I believe that is very valuable. It took a really long time for society to catch up and give just as full responsibility to men and that having a child and parenting does not fall on just the woman’s shoulders or life. The other topics that I liked in this book were on environmental toxins, B vitamins, epigenetics, gut health, emotional foundations, oxidative stress, preventative medicine, and, an appendix on labs and test guide. This book is concise and is easy to read. Although the subject is extremely important and a serious one, it does not overwhelm the reader. It is easy to digest and is very handy guide. This book covers just about everything, with a wealth of knowledge and information shared, and Section 1 is my favorite. Because, books about conception and birth abound everywhere, while there isn’t as much about the preparation stage. What I also liked best is that these information are evidence-based and show that these are achievable. I recommend this book just as I strongly advise any parent-to-be that preparing oneself, preparing that stage, more than preparing all the baby stuffs or the room, is the best thing one can do to begin the journey of parenting.

A must read if you want to have a healthy baby: I’m the daughter with whom Dagmar (the author of this book) had conversations with. I’m thrilled that her immense knowledge and wisdom has been collated and is now available inside the pages of this book. Mum helped my husband and I to have a healthy baby. And has helped many more families realise their healthy baby dream during her 20 plus years in clinic. The information Dagmar shares in her book is wise, approachable, comprehensive and evidence-based. She’s included checklists, summaries and links to make it super easy for you to implement and follow. I’m beyond proud and so glad daughters everywhere get to learn from my mum—she’s amazing!
