About the Book

Raising a bright and happy child starts during pregnancy and early infancy, when small changes can have a big impact on brain development.

By taking advantage of this golden window of opportunity—when millions of new brain cells are formed every single day—you can help support your child’s IQ, language development, memory, attention span, and emotional regulation.

Importantly, the same strategies that nurture these cognitive abilities can also help reduce the odds of autism and ADHD, conditions that now impact 1 in 10 children.

Brain Health from Birth is your guide to this new scientific frontier, explaining which key nutrients may be missing from your prenatal supplement, how to reduce the odds of preterm birth, what to look for in a formula, how to support your baby’s microbiome, and much more. 

With contributions from leading obstetricians and pediatricians, the book explains all the latest research on infant brain development, so you can feel confident that you are making well-informed decisions to help your baby thrive.

Brain Health from Birth is now available everywhere!

About the Author

My scientific training is in molecular biotechnology and biochemistry, with degrees in Science and Law from the University of Sydney and New York University Law School. Before becoming an author, I spent ten years as a patent litigation attorney for a large law firm in New York, where I specialized in billion-dollar pharmaceutical patent law suits. Much of my job involved weighing scientific evidence and translating complex science into plain language that judges and juries could understand. I now use that training to help share scientific discoveries I am truly excited about, with the people who can benefit most.

My first book, It Starts with the Egg: How the Science of Egg Quality Can Help You Get Pregnant Naturally, Prevent Miscarriage, and Improve the Odds in IVF has become one of the bestselling fertility books and has helped thousands of women finally conceive after a long history of infertility or recurrent miscarriage.

In Brain Health from Birth, I’m hoping to share all the latest science on infant infant brain development, to give pregnant women and new mothers clear evidence-based guidance on how to raise a smart and happy baby.
