Elements of an Optimal Pregnancy
As every mother knows, pregnancy is one of the greatest stress tests of the human body. Achieving an optimal pregnancy depends on many factors:
Square Roots dedicated years and millions of dollars championing public health efforts to improve pregnancy outcomes for moms and their babies; including passing the first maternal health resolution at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in 83 years.
We eventually realized that our greatest challenge was the lack of a gold standard for pregnancy well-being.
How could the most important function in life not have clear best practices? We knew we needed a standard, beyond just surviving pregnancy. We needed a pregnancy flourishing roadmap.
So, we teamed-up with the Harvard Chan School of Public Health and other leading maternal health and wellness organizations to create a new blueprint to holistically define and provide an optimal pregnancy for all women.Download our White Paper
We then asked ourselves
