PerinataL REsearch

The information below is gathered from studies and articles that look at evidence based research.

You can use the information here to guide you in your decisions, but remember evidence does not equal truth, it only provides information about correlation and helps us understand our environment in a small way. If something doesn't feel right to you, you don't have to do it, even if everyone else is. Sometimes, it doesn’t matter if the evidence points to something “not working”, if it works for you, then why not continue.

If you see anything here that you believe to be inaccurate or out of date - let me know! I am always working to keep my information current and unbiased to provide families with as much information as possible to make informed choices.
