Beautiful Babies, Fabulous Familes, Wonderful World

By Belinda Barnes


This is a wonderful book for those who wish to have healthy pregnancies and healthy children. In a practical, chatty, accessible style this book conveys the enthusiasm, passion and experience of the charity's founder and author of the book, 'Nim' Barnes. While soundly based on nutrition, the book explores other areas like hidden infection and electromagnetic pollution. It is Nim's fervent wish that all adults have this knowledge and know how to check their nutritional status and correct it before conception.

Whether you have had trouble conceiving or have experienced miscarriages or just want the best for your future off-spring, this book is for you.
Anne Wynne-Simmons, Medical Doctor and Former Head of Children's Dept.The Royal London Homeopathie Hospital

Originally founded in 1978, Foresight's programme is based on the premise that most unfavourable outcomes of pregnancy can be avoided if both parents make proper preparation, ideally beginning at least six months prior to a planned conception. Today's world of increasing environmental chemical pollution and commercial food processing, subtle chemical toxicities and nutritional deficiencies places many pregnancies at a disadvantage from their onsets. Addressing these issues in a comprehensive fashion, Foresight's results speak for themselves in terms of healthy and bright infants being born after a full term pregnancy.
Harold Buttram M.D.

Success Story

"We came across Foresight as we decided to try for our first child (we had previously had a miscarriage). We understood it as a different approach to healthy living and have kept on, despite not planning any more children, a lot of your principles and advice in our daily routine. We get our fresh produce (fruit, veg, dairy, eggs, meat) delivered from local organic farms and have not found our bills going up, as we stick to what we get! I threw aluminium cookware out and replaced it for glass or stainless steel and cut out artificially composed foods. We also did hair analysis and have been filtering our water for almost 4 years now (we have now invested in an osmosis filter) as our heavy metals were quite high.

We got pregnant immediately on both occasions and my pregnancies and births were both very straight forward (one water birth, one natural) and we now have two bright and healthy sparks challenging our existence (you didn't warn us about that!!)

I thank you for the encouragement on breastfeeding as I have a predisposition to hayfever and it seems that, so far, my children haven't got any! This, in my mind, is due to their healthy start in life thanks to your leadership and inspiration."
