Microbirth is a multi-award winning documentary exploring the latest science about the ‘seeding and feeding’ of a baby’s microbiome during pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding. The film features scientists behind the ground-breaking research that reveals the critical role of mothers’ microbes for optimal training of the infant immune system and lifelong health.
Following the success of the film, we’ve produced a book aimed at parents and healthcare professionals: The Microbiome Effect (UK edition) and Your Baby’s Microbiome (US edition).
In Spring 2017 we launched continuing education resources aimed at healthcare professionals including online courses and one-day workshops.
Microbirth is an award-winning landmark feature documentary about the microscopic events happening during birth and breastfeeding that shape the lifelong health of our children.
Featuring 12 world-leading professors, Microbirth highlights an urgent public health issue: medicalised birth and formula feeding could be impacting the future health of our children.
