MICROBIRTH filmmaker and author Toni Harman explains the microscopic events happening during physiological birth and breastfeeding. When a baby is born, the infant acquires bacteria from the mother’s birth canal, from contact with the mother’s fecal matter, from skin-to-skin contact, from other environmental exposures and from breast milk. The special sugars in human breast milk then feed the bacteria that have come from the mother to quickly colonise the baby’s gut, thus ensuring the optimal training of the infant immune system. However, C-section, antibiotics and formula feeding can impact these natural biological processes with ramifications for a child’s lifelong health.
