"I learned so much about the infant microbiome and the impact of HMOs on the infants overall health from Microbiome Courses.
It is a fascinating and complex subject, and the course presented the material in a clear and engaging way. The videos were very professionally done. I have already recommended the course to several colleagues!"
Kristina Chamberlain, CNM, ARNP, IBCLC, Clinical Director and Lead Faculty

“I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for Toni's free courses.

The passion is palpable and the science makes sense. My background is hospital-based, and this research is not taught. My private practice is enriched having discovered the Microbiome courses. Plus, the presentations are fun and captivating! They stick with you! I never pass them up!”

Kristan Zylka, BSN, RNC-OB, IBCLC, Oh Eve Motherhood Lactation Education and Consulting.

“Wow. I learned so many more amazing things about breastmilk.

The best thing about the course is that it is easy to follow, and has so many experts featured. There is just enough reiteration of previous modules to reinforce the learning.

The course gave me a deeper understanding about why each mother's breastmilk is the food designed for her baby, and a reminder that formula will never compare no matter what they add to it.”

Why is birth so important for the human microbiome?

= What happens during birth affects a baby's

long-term health.

"If we miss the window at birth then the immune system never matures correctly.

If you upset this process in early life then we may have consequences later and that can lead to production of disease later in life."
