Healthy Baby: Summary

The main topic of this conversation is about the significant steps for having a healthy baby with Leah Blondin, FDNP. Emphasis is put on the aspects regarding the creation of the baby, what people can do to promote the baby’s health, and the crucial things to consider once the baby is born.

Leah shares about her personal journey dealing with gut problems, anxiety, and depression from a young age and how becoming a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner in 2017 allowed her to get the answers she needed to heal and maintain long-term health. 

The discussion covers fertility health. Leah emphasizes that to ensure a baby is healthy, the mother must be healthy first, as the mother passes her gut problems and other health issues onto her future baby. Managing gut health, hormonal balance, and optimal nutrient levels can lay the foundation for a healthy pregnancy and a thriving baby. 

Leah also discusses the importance of having personalized prenatal plans and running diagnostic tests to address the unique health needs of each mother. Complementing her advice, she underscores the necessity to comprehend the ways our body is utilizing the nutrients, hormones, or such essentials; simply having them in the blood does not imply that they are serving their purpose appropriately within the body. 

In the concluding segment, Leah talks about dealing with postpartum depression and anxiety. She also shares some of her client testimonials where she has helped people struggling with different health problems. 

As per this episode, the recommended tests to investigate before and during pregnancy are micronutrient tests, GI MAP, DUTCH, and food sensitivities test to understand your hormone balance, gut health, and nutrient levels. Leah recommends micronutrient testing to provide a comprehensive idea of the body’s nutrition status and help in creating customized supplement plans.
