Welcome to my site about pregnancy and oral health. I strive to give “soon to be” or “veteran” mamas the best, up to date, information and guidance to a healthy mouth, pregancy and baby. Hope you find it useful and I welcome your comments and questions!
I have been a practicing dental hygienist for the last 27 years. I have a strong passion for overall health and definitely how the mouth effects our body’s health. I have 3 adult (ish) children and have been through pregnancy with all it’s challenges and worries about the health of my babies and myself. I want to help women who are prepregnancy, pregnant or postpartem with their dental health. I also want to help them create the best scenario for a healthy baby through taking care of mamas oral health. Yes, it does matter in significant ways!
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
I love helping people. I especially love helping women with their health and the health of their growing children. I know that oral health can be confusing and is often a secondary thought not addressed by doctors or midwives, usually. As a hygienist, I’ve seen many telling signs of sub optimal health in the mouth. Our mouth can be a window into the health of the body and not many physicians look or know what to look for. You can gain overall health with an easy start in the mouth. Let me help you navigate through the world of best practices and products effecting the health of your mouth.
THE GOAL OF MY SITE
The purpose of this site is to give good, current and relevant information regarding oral health, pregnancy and baby oral health. I love giving recommendations for products either I have used or have seen work in my patients’ mouths. I want to hear about your challenges and goals, and act as a guide in your quest for the healthiest start to your baby’s life.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
