World Prematurity Day Is Coming Up on Nov. 17

Kirkman® Offers Before Baby™ Supplements to Help Expectant Parents Stay Healthy

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - November 14, 2014) - According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 15 million babies are born prematurely every year. World Prematurity Day is Monday, Nov. 17 and organizers hope to raise awareness about the striking problems associated with prematurity.

In the U.S. one out of eight babies are born premature. It's a fact that the health of the parents can influence the health their newborn. Kirkman® offers a proprietary line of supplements called Before Baby™, formulated to help develop strong nutritional profiles for parents-to-be. Science indicates that the healthier parents-to-be are, the better chance their newborns have to be healthy

More and more evidence is emerging that negative environmental exposures may be a contributor to health problems related to pregnancy, birth and childhood development. Kirkman® is the only nutraceutical company that tests its supplements for more than 950 environmental contaminants. Including fungicides, pesticides, herbicides, biocides, endocrine disruptors and other harmful chemicals. 

Because potential problems associated with premature birth can be so consequential, Kirkman® has made an effort to keep parents as healthy as possible by providing nutraceutical supplements to take during preconception and the prenatal period in its Before Baby™ line that includes the following products:

  • Before Baby™ Natural Cleanse: A special blend of natural ingredients that help detoxify and cleanse the system specially formulated for parents and parents-to-be.
