MothersBabies was born from a passion for helping women and babies live a life free from preventable disease and ill health. 

Just over 10 years ago, Catherine Oates Smith, founder and mum herself, became obsessed with the impact that the gut microbiome could have on immune health, after her daughter became life-threateningly ill with an autoimmune disease…

What ensued was a journey of discovery for Catherine as she researched, spoke with experts across a range of medical and health fields to find the underlying reasons that caused auto-immune illness.

Her quest brought her to many experts in women and children’s health, including Professors and Doctors working at the Royal Hospital for Women and University of NSW. 

Catherine realised through the emerging science of the microbiome that the lifelong health of a baby is impacted by the baby’s mother’s pre pregnancy and pregnancy health and that the baby’s immune system is the key determinant of the baby’s health for life.

She has since worked tirelessly, alongside her team of experts and writers, to bring this research out into the public forum through her charity, MothersBabies.



One of the most important resources that MothersBabies has provided to almost 1500 people, is its online course, ‘Healthy Gut, Healthier Baby’. This course addresses the influence of microbiome health on the pre-pregnancy period, pregnancy, and post-birth period and includes numerous interviews with experts ranging from obstetricians to nutritionists.

Our ‘Healthy Gut, Healthier Baby’ course is currently FREE and we would love you to sign up and share this offer with as many friends and family as you possibly can.

We hope to reach as many people out there as possible with this amazing offer…
