    Just passing by.Btw, you website have great content!

    Did you know that over 94% of personal computers have hidden corrupt dangerous files with over 150 hidden errors and bugs on them?

When you look at all the amazing scents and colors that you can find in places like the rainforest or the sea floor it makes you wonder why we need to instead keep going back to the laboratory using toxic chemicals instead. Pregnant or not these are BAD things. We need to go organic. Organic Foods and Cosmetics are what we need!

    When I was pregnant I was addicted to caffeine based drinks, they are supposed to be bad for the baby, my baby thrived, I couldn’t help the craving although many health visitors and midwifes told me to steer clear of them.

  6. Go with organic cosmetics certified by Nature et Progres in France, and you will be fine! Does it make sense to avoid hairsprays altogether while being pregnant?
