Pregnancy can be the most exciting time in a woman’s life as well as the most daunting, with thousands of questions running through her mind… will my baby be healthy?….what happens if I have complications?….what are the best supplements to take while I am pregnant? and the list goes on.

It is so important that expectant mothers take care of themselves when they are pregnant by exercising, eating a healthy diet, taking vitamins, (plenty of folic acid and calcium to prevent common birth defects) and especially taking probiotics which increases a baby’s overall immunity.  By keeping the gut healthy, pregnant women can avoid pregnancy / birth complications and give birth to healthier babies.

Research has shown that there are a plethora of health benefits by taking probiotics whilst pregnant, including preventing genitourinary infections, which in turn would reduce the risk of pre-term labour. Pregnant women are less likely to experience constipation, while maternal use of probiotics during pregnancy reduce the risk of childhood allergic disease by half. Probiotics positively influences digestive health, maintains intestinal integrity and dampens inflammatory and allergic responses and decreases infant atopic dermatitis and eczema risk.

Studies have shown that by taking probiotics during pregnancy and lactation there is a positive influence on a child’s immune system.  There is a direct connection between the organisms in a mother’s gut and those in her milk and recent research has shown how important breast milk is in establishing a baby’s microbiome. Babies are born with a sterile gut, inheriting their entire microbiome from their mothers in the placenta and the microbes they inherit through birth, breast milk and skin-to-skin contact become the building blocks for the child’s immune system. Because probiotics are rarely systemically absorbed, studies have shown that probiotics do not pose any risk to breastfeeding.

From the first to the third trimester, diversity of the maternal gut microbiota decreases, and the immune system becomes more inflammatory. Supplementation in pregnancy with specific probiotics has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, gestational weight gain and decrease maternal levels of triglycerides and LDL. Probiotic interventions also seem to be most effective for infant allergies if commenced prenatally.
