Picture shows New mum and Xposé presenter Michelle Doherty who, with help from new baby Max ,has today launched the First 1,000 Days Awareness Week, taking place from the 1st to the 7th of September. Over the course of the week, the First 1000 Days team will be driving a series of activities which aim to highlight the importance of good nutrition during the first 1,000 days of life, from conception right up to two years of age. 
A growing body of research has shown that the first 1,000 days of life, from pregnancy up to two years of age, offers a unique window of opportunity that can have a profound impact on the long term health and development of an individual. Parents are encouraged to get the nutritional balance right during this time, as it is extremely important in helping intellectual development, whilst reducing the risk of obesity, Type II diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis at later stages in life.

Michelle landed the coveted Xposé presenting gig late last year, beating off stiff competition from hopefuls including Pippa O’Connor and Daniella Moyles.

The Donegal brunette was enlisted to replace Aisling O’Loughlin while she left on maternity leave.

Now, Michelle, a former Aer Lingus air hostess, will focus on being a doting mum to Max for the coming months.

She recently said:

“You can't put your life off because of jobs. I just always wanted to be a mum and I thought: 'Whenever it's the right time I'll take my blessings'."

The former Phantom radio DJ was vocal about her “amazing” pregnancy, revealing she never got sick and was rarely tired:

“I was more worried that I wouldn't be lucky enough to get pregnant, because so many people struggle to,” she told the Irish Independent. "Some people do take it for granted and I was never one of those because I love children so much. I would've died if I couldn't have had a baby so yeah, that was my priority.”
