About Microbiome Courses (Microbirth School)

We are Toni Harman and Alex Wakeford. We love to make films, write, create, speak and teach!

We are professional filmmakers (DOULA!, FREEDOM FOR BIRTH & MICROBIRTH), we are also book authors (THE MICROBIOME EFFECT & YOUR BABY'S MICROBIOME). We speak at international conferences and we are also course creators and the founders of this school.

Within this online school, we offer evidence-based courses featuring world-leading professors from elite universities to explain the wonders of the infant microbiome - the science explored in our award-winning film MICROBIRTH. CLICK HERE to view all our courses.

Over the past 7 years, it's become our passion to explain the critical microscopic events happening during pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding. We have interviewed about 30 world-leading professors about their research into the infant microbiome and our goal is to bring the science to you in a way that is easy-to-understand and easy-to-digest.

After all, the infant microbiome is a field of science that strongly supports vaginal birth (when possible), immediate skin-to-skin contact and exclusive breastfeeding. This enables the optimal training of the infant immune system to benefit a child's lifkelong health. If we can spread the word about the wonders of the infant microbiome, then we believe we can change the health of the next generation.
