Offering women safer options than “vaginal seeding” for infants born by caesarean section

Cunnington and colleagues’ paper raises concerns about the risk of transmission of serious infections posed by the practice of “vaginal seeding” in infants born by caesarean section.1 This practice involves exposing these infants to vaginal fluids post-delivery and therefore exposing them to similar microbiota to that of infants born vaginally. Delivery by caesarean has been associated with problems such …

“Vaginal seeding” of infants born by caesarean section

The microbiota is the community of microbes that colonises our bodies, outnumbering our own cells 10 to 1.1 This complex microbial community varies from one part of the body to another, and from one person to another. Characteristic differences in the microbiota are associated with various diseases.2 As a result interest has surged in the potential for manipulating the microbiota to promote health and treat disease.2

Specialised antenatal clinics for women with a multiple pregnancy for improving maternal and infant outcomes | Cochrane

Women carrying more than one baby are at increased risk of complications in pregnancy, which can affect the health of both mother and babies. 'Specialised' antenatal clinics have been suggested for women with a multiple pregnancy as a means of improving health outcomes for women and their infants. The review found one randomised trial involving 162 women with a multiple pregnancy. For most important outcomes the evidence was not available, or was graded very low quality due to imprecise estimates, the small sample size of the single study providing data and low numbers of events for some outcomes. There were no significant differences identified between specialised antenatal care and standard care in the chance of a baby dying in the first month of life. Women receiving specialised antenatal care were significantly more likely to give birth by caesarean section. Further information from well-designed trials reporting outcomes for women and their infants are required.

'Microbial birthday suit' for C-section babies - BBC News

Those worried about the health impacts of Caesarean sections say babies born that way miss out on the health benefits of a natural birth. Now, as Alanna Collen writes in this week's Scrubbing Up, some experts are suggesting a simple swab could mean that doesn't have to be the case.
