Pregnancy, for any women is an exciting and daunting time when taking care of yourself has never been more important. It’s a natural but strange realisation that your body is now giving life to another and that your baby depends on you for it's health now and in later life. There will be overwhelming advice on all the do's and don’ts however staying healthy during pregnancy depends on you, so it's important to arm yourself with information about the key ways to keep you and your baby as healthy as possible. There are numerous different types of beneficial probiotic bacteria that can support you through your pregnancy, many with unique health benefits:
• Enhances the immune system which may reduce the risk of illness
• Contains five species of beneficial bacteria to support healthy balanced vaginal microflora
• May lower the risk of baby developing an allergy such as eczema
• May reduce the frequency and severity of constipation
• Supports optimal breast feeding health
• May lower the risk of recurrent lactational mastitis infection
• Supports the optimal absorption of essential minerals such as iron & calcium
• Helps with the maintenance of healthy vaginal micro-flora and avoid the growth of yeast and bad bacteria that can cause vaginal infection
• Supports optimal health during Pregnancy and when breastfeeding.
One of the key benefits of a Pregnancy Probiotic is to provide the various types of live probiotic bacteria that are found in a healthy vagina. This ensures that baby born through the birth canal will be exposed to a range of beneficial bacteria that are required to start the development of baby's immune system, which in turn can provide for a life time of good health. This is very important as a baby is essentially sterile until it enters the birth canal, at which point the bacteria start to arrive — and they don’t stop. From a mother’s vaginal bacteria, hugs and kisses from relatives, to eating dirt in the back yard, the exposures of newborns and toddlers in their earliest years is critical to the development of the immune system. Clinical studies have shown that a 6 Billion daily dose of Lactobacillus rhamnosus from week 34 of pregnancy, and then for 6 months when breastfeeding reduces the risk of children from developing allergies such as eczema or hayfever by up to 44% (K. Wicken's 2013). When breastfeeding, probiotic supplementation will help both mother and baby as certain probiotic bacteria have been shown to be present in breast milk, while also providing a protective shield against lactational mastitis. Providing your baby probiotic bacteria is also important for your baby once he/she arrives, with preliminary studies supplementation now known to have a positively influence the development of baby's immune system.
