Microbiome, Infant Gut Health, and Breastmilk: What’s the connection?

Time-frame: 60-90 minutes
CERP: yes

Remember when we used to have to whisper to mothers who were struggling with yeast overgrowth, “Probiotics could be helpful”? Now everyone is talking about probiotics and gut health. What is a healthy gut? What is our microbiome? How can we impact our gut health? And, most importantly for us, where does breastmilk and breastfeeding fit into all of this? These questions and more will be answered as we explore gut health from the very beginning of a baby’s life.
