    Default Beneficial Bacteria Can Be Restored To C-Section Babies At Birth

    Rutgers University
    June 17 2021

    Babies born by cesarean section don't have the same healthy bacteria as those born vaginally, but a Rutgers-led study for the first time finds that these natural bacteria can be restored.
    The study appears in the journal Med.
    The human microbiota consists of trillions of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microorganisms -- some beneficial, some harmful -- that live in and on our bodies. Women naturally provide these pioneer colonizers to their babies' sterile bodies during labor and birth, helping their immune system to develop. But antibiotics and C-sections disturb this passing of microbes and are related to increased risks of obesity, asthma and metabolic diseases.
