Watch: Nature vs. nurture – how the first 1000 days affect lifelong health

Building a healthy baby isn’t just about genetics. 

These first 1000 days of life offer a window of opportunity to create a healthy future for your baby.

Watch a recording of the sold-out Health Matters event (from Wednesday 11 April 2018) where an expert panel discussed the latest developments in preconception and IVF, the implications of events at birth, societal impacts on children’s health and what you can do to help prevent disease and disability before it occurs.
