Why pooping during childbirth might be a good thing

Pregnancy and childbirth are such a beautiful thing but there are also those aspects that can stress us, moms, out.  OMG, I remember how scared I was about pooping during childbirth. I know that sounds funny and all and some women feel embarrassed about pooping during childbirth, but it’s actually a very natural process.

As a matter of fact, did you now that modern science now proves that pooping during childbirth is actually healthy for both mommy and the baby?  Yes, it has an important purpose which is to strengthen a baby’s gut microbiome.

Check it out, here is a little bit more info about the science behind this taboo topic:

When babies are born naturally (vaginally) and they make their way down their moms birth canal, they are placing pressure on the colon.  Yes, this is what often causes mom to poop and serves a very specific purpose, which is to transfer an important and good bacteria strain that only lives in the colon.  This can only be passed from mom to baby.  This transfer allows babies to get a much needed and beneficial bacteria to help their gut develop.

This strain of bacteria is known as B. infantis.  Which is responsible for helping to strengthen a baby’s immune system as well as their metabolic function. However, did you know that due to modern medical practices such as antibiotics, and a rise in C-section births since the 1980s (including our own obsessive methods for trying to prevent pooping), B. infantis is no longer transferred from mother to baby?

Yes, as a matter of fact, only one in 10 U.S. babies today are born with this very important B. infantis strain.  This is important because when an infant’s gut isn’t populated with B. infantis, the baby is greatly susceptible to developing colic, eczema, allergies, asthma and diabetes.

What Can Parents Do To Ensure Their Children Are Receiving B Infantis?

Evivo Breastmilk Probiotics is a once-daily baby probiotic intended to restore baby’s gut with the good bacteria it needs to thrive. Evivo Breastmilk Probiotics is clinically proven to restore B. infantis to baby’s gut while reducing the potentially harmful bacteria linked to colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity by 80%.

    That makes sense even if it sounds a bit gross! Guess the idea is a stress for the new mom. At list I am thinking about!
