The Maternal-Child Microbiome Or: The “Oro-Boobular Axis”

Did you know that a mother who breastfeeds her child is more likely to "match" as an organ donor than a mother who does not breastfeed her child? How does that happen? The answer may lie in the Maternal-Newborn Microbiome, AKA "The Oro-boobular" axis. The scientific world is exploding with excitement over the discovery of the microbiome. While it appears clear that a suckling infant's intestinal microbiome communicates with the mother's lactocyte and perhaps beyond, little is known about the effects of this communication in practical terms. This presentation will review what is known and attempt to explain what it means, both now and in the future.

This lecture was originally offered at our 2017 GOLD Lactation Conference.

The Maternal-Child Microbiome or: The “Oro-boobular axis”

Tom Johnston is unique as a midwife and lactation consultant and the father of eight breastfed children. Recently retired after 27 years in the US Army, he is now an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Methodist University where he teaches, among other things, Maternal-Child Nursing and Nutrition. You may have heard him at a number of conferences at the national level, to include the Association of Woman’s Health and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), the International Lactation Consultant’s Association (ILCA), or perhaps at dozens of other conferences across the country. In his written work he routinely addresses fatherhood and the role of the father in the breastfeeding relationship and has authored a chapter on the role of the father in breastfeeding for “Breastfeeding in Combat Boots: A survival guide to breastfeeding in the military”.

Objective 1: Identify the Maternal-Newborn Microbiome
Objective 2: Discuss the value of the microbiome and its effect on wellness
Objective 3: Identify implications of the microbiome and dysbiosis
