You’ve got this
We now know that your baby’s first 1000 days have the greatest impact on lifelong health. And as it turns out, you can do a lot to support your baby’s health — beginning with what I call the four “building blocks.”
In my free 12-part Baby Basics class, I talk about these four things:
- Foods that nourish
- The baby microbiome
- Secure attachment
- Mama wellness
My name is Megan Garcia
I’m a licensed acupuncturist (CA Medical Board License #19120). I hold a master’s degree in traditional East Asian medicine from Emperor’s College in Santa Monica, California.
Over the years, I’ve accumulated a medicine cabinet of simple tips and tools that can make life flow with little more ease. This is what I share with families.
The parents and babies I work with 💯 inspire what I do.
The first 1000 days
When I found out I was pregnant with my first baby in 2011, I discovered something really interesting: There’s a period in a baby’s life known as the first 1000 days. This includes nine months of pregnancy and the first two years of life.
The first 1000 days are extremely important. They lay the groundwork for a lifetime of health. Everything from nutrition and antibiotic use to postpartum depression affects how baby develops.
But the tough thing is that we don’t always have the tools to optimize baby’s development.
A lot of times, this comes down to simply knowing what your options are. That’s where I hope we can make a difference, together.
Let’s be friends
For real. I have made so many friends through this space and I’m grateful for it everyday.
