MothersBabies Newsletter:
Nurture Your Microbes to Fuel Your Fertility


To view the newsletter, click here

For so many of us, having babies is something we’ve dreamed about since we were young, and imagining our future selves has always involved a family of some description.

It seems crazy then, to think that more information is not made readily available to help empower us with knowledge of how to best prepare our bodies for a successful conception, pregnancy, and baby…In fact, sometimes it seems like all the education surrounding pregnancy is about how NOT to get pregnant!

The topic of this newsletter is all about how nurturing our various microbiomes can help increase our chances of successfully falling pregnant.


In this newsletter, you can:

  • Read an article written by nutritionist Clare Carrick, focusing on practical methods to help nurture your vaginal, gut and seminal microbiome to best support fertility.

  • Read a research summary, written by Dr Fathalla Ali, outlining the pre-pregnancy microbiome and its impact on successful conception.

  • Watch Natural Fertility Expert Leah Hechtman discuss the role of the male microbiome when it comes to conceiving healthy babies.

The information in this newsletter is provided for general educational purposes only.

Statements or opinions expressed in the newsletter should not be taken as fact, but as opinion on the current state of evidence based science. The content is not (and should not be taken to be) medical advice or an endorsement or recommendation of any specific product or treatment.
