What do people think of our courses?
“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
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

Why does the microbiome REALLY matter?
"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.
That can lead to production of disease later in life."
- Prof. Rodney Dietert, Professor Emeritus of Immunotoxicology, Cornell University
Who is Toni Harman
and why did I create these courses?
When I was pregnant, I wanted a home birth
and I wanted to exclusively breastfeed.
Like many mothers, I had an emergency C-section
and struggled to breastfeed.
After the birth, I was left with many questions.
As a filmmaker, I went looking for answers.
I have interviewed over 100 top scientists and experts.
I made the award-winning documentary MICROBIRTH
which has had over 1,000+ public screenings around the world.
Now I want to share what I have learned with YOU,
so you can better support parents with informed choice.
The science of the microbiome STRONGLY supports
✅Vaginal birth (when possible)
✅Immediate skin-to-skin contact
But if vaginal birth, skin-to-skin or exclusive breastfeeding
is not possible (for whatever reason), there are still many things
parents CAN DO to support the development of their baby's microbiome.
If YOU understand the science by taking our courses,
YOU can better support parents with informed choices
for all situations for optimal long-term health.
I hope you enjoy learning about the microbiome.
