I stumbled upon a great blog on Psychology Today about pre-maternal green guilt:
“The problem is, once you know it’s out there, you start to see advice everywhere: all these things you really should be doing to go green before a pregnancy. The craziest among the green-guilt-mongerers have been known to suggest more than a year of cleanses, diet changes, furniture replacement and generally ridding one’s life of all things chemical-laden. Why? If you don’t, you will not create the healthiest possible embryo/fetus/baby! What about environmental factors and epigenetics?! And once you have kids? There’s no end to it.”
