Foetal exposure to the maternal microbiota

A new study is challenging the understanding that a baby’s gut is sterile until birth, demonstrating that a foetus has its own microbiome or communities of bacteria living in the gut. This study suggests that this foetal microbiome is transmitted from the mother during pregnancy and the findings suggest the potential for interventions during pregnancy to stimulate the fetal microbiome, particularly when a premature birth is a possibility.
