This is the second part of the series "A Vegan Pregnancy is Selfish: You will kill your baby." (go here if you didn't see the first one: wp.me/pzDsy-it)

In this video I try to dispel the myths surrounding plant-based pregnancy diets and share the benefits of chia seeds as well as offering moral support for those who want to do not just want vegan and vegetarian pregnancies but home births as well. I want to convey that vegan pregnancies will not 'kill your baby' when properly planned and under the right care provider.

I also talk about how chia seeds are excellent for hydration, labor, calcium, and other minerals, as well as Omega 3-6-9 that outshines flax seeds.

Lastly, I am hoping my video blogging and research have benefited you. I would like to ask a favor. My PhD/dissertation fellowship was not renewed for 2011-2012 academic year. I am a PhD Candidate at UC Davis trying to finish my dissertation which is a pro-vegan project and advocates anti-racist and critical race engagement. This project's goal is to create a manuscript that can help folk build more coalitions and solidarity within veganism and those potentially interested in plant-based dietary lifestyles. Thus far I have gotten $3200 out of $10,000 in contributions.
