Andrea shares the number one gift a mom can give to her baby
is a healthy gut. 75% of the immune system is housed in the gut
(microbiome). Join us next week for episode 14 and learn even more
about the microbiome and how it impacts overall health. I'll be
talking with Toni Harman, producer of the documentary Microbirth.
Toni will share more
about the microbiome and the impact on your baby and ways that you
can create a healthy foundation that can impact your child's health
for the rest of his or her life!
