What is MICROBIRTH?
MICROBIRTH is a 60 minute award-winning documentary that reveals the microscopic events that happen during childbirth and breastfeeding.
MICROBIRTH looks at the latest science that shows that vaginal birth and breastfeeding are critical for the optimal "seeding and feeding" of the infant microbiome.
The microscopic events happening during birth and early infancy could have life-long consequences for the health of our children and potentially could impact the future of mankind.
MICROBIRTH reveals the latest scientific thinking on how best to “seed” a baby’s microbiome in order to build the strongest possible immune system.
This cutting-edge science has the potential to not only improve the health of our children across a lifetime, but also across many generations still to come.
