Words of Support and Encouragement Week of March 28, 2011


Good Morning!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  It seems like every week, a new chemical or product is labeled as potentially dangerous to your health.  Whether you are trying to conceive or nurture an early pregnancy, it is important for you to feel secure with your choices.
At CNY Fertility Center, we won’t necessarily tell you to stay away from a particular beauty product, but our practitioners will often advise you to lean more towards natural skin care.  If you have any specific questions, please don’t hesitate to ask at your next appointment.
For your own knowledge, the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database is a great resource.  I check it all the time, and I have found it to be incredibly helpful!  All you do is search any product you use, and they give you the results of their research and the product’s safety rating.  Product safety is something to consider for everyone, not only those who are trying to conceive or carry a child.
Have a look, and see how your products compare!  There may be a cost-effective and easy change to make, to improve the quality of what you put both on and in your body.
Best of luck!
