The Empowering Mothers To Be Project
Learn more about the campaign
MothersBabies is seeking support for its ‘Empowering Mothers-to-be Campaign’ to progress its mission to empower mothers-to-be with evidence-based science to transform their health pre-pregnancy, during pregnancy and at birth so that their health, and the health of their babies, is optimised for life. In so doing, the campaign will significantly contribute to disease prevention and in turn reduce the burden on our community and healthcare system.
The emerging science about the microbiome – or gut health, is showing that the microbiome and its interaction with both our DNA and our environment, plays a crucial role in the creation of health or disease in humans.
MothersBabies is currently engaged in two major initiatives:
1. Conducting the Empowering Mothers-to-be Campaign
2. Raising funds for the MothersBabies Study – this study will examine the link between the state of the microbiome that a baby acquires from its mother and the potential for diseases to arise.
