Welcome to babyMed
Most of us do a lot of preparations when we start cooking our favorite meals such as Thanksgiving dinner. We have a list and purchase all the ingredients, measuring carefully, and stirring consistently to cook that meal to absolute perfection. And we usually start early even weeks in advance. We follow dinner recipes to a tee. Not so with a pregnancy. Most pregnancies follow the "just do it" principle, get pregnant first, then figure out what to do next. This is not the optimal way to have a healthy pregnancy.
babyMed teaches you all the ingredients and tools you need for a healthy and happy pregnancy.
babyMed wants you to get ready for your pregnancy in the pre-trimester, the preconception period before your pregnancy. Getting ready in the pre-trimester will help ensure that you get pregnant faster in optimal shape and have a healthy baby.
Getting pregnant, experiencing the ups and downs of pregnancy, and delivering a healthy baby involves a steep learning curve for most people. After all, most of us took sex education classes in high school and college that taught us how to not get pregnant, but not many of us took any classes on how to get pregnant! In addition, when we first decide we want to try to get pregnant, there aren't too many reputable resources available.
Over the last few decades, women have been having their first child at an older age which makes it more difficult to get pregnant. babyMed has helped thousands of couples get educated about fertility, trying to conceive (TTC), and pregnancy.
Couples that are trying to get pregnant often look for online support such as forums and groups, or they simply use Google. However, the answers they find online are often unscientific and don't address their main concerns. Unfortunately, many websites are incorrect and lead couples in the wrong direction. babyMed is the only site that gets it right. babyMed was conceived and nurtured by Dr. Amos Grunebaum, an OB/GYN with decades of experience in helping couples get pregnant and have healthy babies. He is among the world's leading authorities on fertility and pregnancy. Over his 40+ years as an OB/GYN in New York City, Dr. Amos has delivered more than 5,000 babies and has supervised more than 20,000 deliveries.
