Nothing: It is genetic. If anyone posing as a health care provider has offered you some pill, food, or potion to cause your unborn child to have a lighter skin (or whatever), you should contact your local district attorney. I hope you'll love your baby, yourself & your baby's father totally without regard to skin color, just as the world is moving toward colorblindness.
