Third module: Reducing excessive blood cell turnover by nurturing strong maternal circadian rhythms
Learn how the circadian rhythm controls timing during pregnancy and early infancy, and what the strength of the mother's circadian timing can do for baby
Circadian science is new(ish) frontier that may have the answers to pregnancy problems that have puzzled scientists for decades (such as preeclampsia, genetic expression, hormonal cycles, and more). The circadian rhythm is how our bodies know what to do, when. It controls things like the sleep/wake cycle, but also things like cell creation/destruction timing.
The current paradigm says babies don’t have a circadian rhythm of their own.
It says babies grow using their mother’s circadian rhythm in the womb, and then are born without a rhythm of their own at all. After birth, they are thought to slowly entrain to their environment.
