Education on the effects of environmental chemicals has been slow to catch up with the research. ACOG has recommended that all pregnant women receive information on how to avoid many chemicals known to cause fetal harm. Numerous organizations are providing research and education for families to reduce their exposure to unhealthy toxins but mainstream paths of education have been slow to add this information to curriculum. Childbirth educators have a unique opportunity to educate pregnant and new families about the concerns and also provide safe, healthy alternatives for care of families.
