MothersBabies Newsletter:

The Consequences of an Imbalanced
Gut Microbiome

The more we learn about the impact that our gut microbiome has on our overall health, and the health of our babies, the more we understand the importance of caring for it from ALL angles…

This means eating well, exercising, managing our stress, using medication only when appropriate, not drinking too much alcohol and not over-sanitising our environment…

Any large, sudden changes in the abundance, composition, or diversity of gut bugs can have significant health consequences for you. For example, an imbalance (aka dysbiosis) may lead to failures to regulate and restore appropriate immune and inflammatory responses. This can then contribute to chronic inflammatory conditions such as IBD and asthma, and may even play a role in the development of conditions such as autism spectrum disorder, depression, and neurodegenerative conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease.

Since the communication between the brain and the gut microbiome axis is two-way, our mental states can shape the composition of our gut bacteria. One study even showed that infants of mums who were chronically stressed during pregnancy had markedly different gut microbiome compositions, and subsequently, more health issues, such as gastrointestinal symptoms and allergic reactions.

Your physical health, mental wellbeing, energy, fertility, and the health of your future babies is all influenced by those minuscule little microbes, so don’t forget to take good care of them!

If you’d like to learn more about the implications of your gut health, sign up to our online course ‘Healthy Gut, Healthier Baby’, which is currently free!
