He was right with all he said about how having poor levels can effect the baby when a women is pregnant BUT it does not matter if the baby has PKU or not. Weither the baby has PKU or not if the mother has poor blood levels it will basically limit the blood and oxygen flow to the not only the mothers brain but the baby aswell. So it will effect the baby weither they have PKU or not because the mother is where the baby gets their blood and oxygen until they are born and PKU or no PKU babies need blood and oxygen to survive.
