Pregnancy, for any women is an exciting and daunting time when taking care of yourself has never been more important. It’s a natural but strange realisation that your body is now giving life to another and that your baby depends on you for it’s health now and in later life. There will be overwhelming advice on all the do’s and don’ts however staying healthy during pregnancy depends on you, so it’s important to arm yourself with information about the key ways to keep you and your baby as healthy as possible. There are numerous different types of beneficial probiotic bacteria that can support you through your pregnancy (& when breastfeeding).
To enhance the immune system to reduce the risk of illness during pregnancy, that may also harm your baby.
Avoid constipation, which is otherwise likely during pregnancy.
Increase nutrient absorption (such as Iron, Magnesium & Calcium).
Maintain healthy blood glucose levels & avoid gestational diabetes.
Prevent yeast overgrowth infections caused by hormonal imbalance.
Prevent lactational mastitis when breastfeeding.
Maintain optimal energy & vitality throughout pregnancy. One of the key benefits of a Pregnancy Probiotic is to provide the various types of live probiotic bacteria that are found in a healthy vagina. This ensures that baby born through the birth canal will be exposed to a range of beneficial bacteria that are required to start the development of baby’s immune system, which in turn will provide for a life time of good health. This is very important as a baby is essentially sterile until it enters the birth canal, at which point the bacteria start to arrive — and they don’t stop. From a mother’s vaginal bacteria, hugs and kisses from relatives, to eating dirt in the back yard, the exposures of newborns and toddlers in their earliest years is critical to the development of the immune system, which in turn will set up baby for a life time of good health.
Clinical studies have repeatedly shown that a 6 Billion daily dose of Lactobacillus rhamnosus probiotic from week 32 of pregnancy, and then for 6 months when breastfeeding reduces the risk of children from developing allergies such as eczema or hayfever by 44% (Wicken’s 2013).
When breastfeeding probiotic supplementation will benefit both mother and baby as probiotic bacteria are passed to baby through breast milk, and these same probiotic bacteria also prevent the painful symptoms of lactational mastitis.
Providing your baby probiotic bacteria is also important for your baby once he/she arrives, with supplementation now known to reduce the incidence of baby colic, promoting healthy bowel movements and to maintain a protective shield against allergies such as eczema.
