The leading group of obstetricians and gynecologists in the US has spoken out to warn expectant mothers against ‘vaginal seeding.’ The new trend sees mothers who have cesarean births “seeding”.

Vaginal seeding can inadvertently transfer herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea to newborns, especially since these diseases often go undetected in new mothers. Worse, there’s a real risk of transferring the deadly Group B Streptococcus bacteria, which is responsible for more than 150,000 infant deaths worldwide.

Interestingly, there is an ongoing clinical trial (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier, NCT03298334; 2018–2025) evaluating the effect of vaginal seeding on the newborn’s microbiome development, immune development, and metabolic outcomes over a 3-year follow-up.

Some doctors have expressed concern about ‘seeding’, but it’s important to stress that babies swabbed with the gauze are not being exposed to any more ‘nasty germs’ than they would have been had they made their way into the world via the usual vaginal route.

This is not surprising because viral shedding from the cervix increases from 5 to 15% of the time in the nonpregnant status to as much as 28% at some point in gestation.

There is an increasing practice of ‘seeding’ the neonatal gut by placing a maternal vaginal swab in the newborn’s mouth to promote colonization of the neonatal gut but the research suggesting this is beneficial is limited.

  • I have had an ectopic pregnancy. Fallopian tube implantation. 8 1/2 weeks, and ruptured. But the pain I had for over a month was insane. But because it was so early and I have a history of endometriosis and large ovarian cysts (plus irregular periods) the at home pregnancy test came up negative. My doc thought it was just my regular pain. I also have PSVT so my high hr wasn’t taken into account either. Almost died from that, but the emotional damage was the worst for me. I didn’t care about me. I cared about the child I lost.

  • Are you sure about myth 6? According to this article, they found different taste preferences in babies trying carrots for the first time as solid food. They had different facial expression due to what the mother got during the pregnancy and breastfeeding period.

    Name of article: “Prenatal and Postnatal Flavor Learning by Human Infants” source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1351272/

  • Natural birth is better I had natural and epidural and I choose natural it’s faster and you are back to your normal self after having the baby

  • Beautiful God is Good.

  • Some stuff day say is actualy not true. Induced labor with picotin is often more psinfull cuz your brain is more likly to flush you with adrinalin, instead of all the lovey dovy hormons that act as natural painkiller.

  • All thanks to DR unuayan for helping me with his herbal supplement,after 6 years of trying to get pregnant with 10 years of my tube tied and there was no money for surgery.But finally with the help of DR unuayan herbal supplement i got pregnant naturally just after using it for less than 2 weeks it is so amazing this is my greatest surprise i never believe i will ever get pregnant without surgery,but here i am today with 6 months pregnancy testifying the goodness of DR unuayan herbal supplement. are you having a related problem trying to get pregnant with tube tied,fibroid,PCOS look no further and contact DR unuayan to order your own with his email via: ([email protected]) call or WhatsApp +2348134647497

  • I never would have been able to do it natural. I’m not strong enough to deal with the pain and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I would have died during childbirth if I had a baby before epidurals

  • My mom met a woman who had gotten her Fallopian tubes removed and seven years later got pregnant because her tubes had grown back �� could you talk about this in a future video? I would like to know more information about it and would love to hear what you know about Fallopian tubes growing back ��

  • When I was cooking in a nursing home I worked with a mother and daughter duo. (the daughter was like 40, dont know the moms age) One day Im working with the mom she told me a story about how when she was pregnant with her daughter she was taking a bath and her appendix burst.

  • I am super paranoid about this happening to me. My Fallopian tubes were removed because of tumors. My uterus was sewn shut, but I’m paranoid that a small opening could develop, creating the conditions for an extra uterine pregnancy. I know the odds are virtually nil, but I’ve watched too many of these ��

  • Is the reason that there is no evidence supporting these myths because no one is doing studies or that studies are disproving the claims?

  • The food having impact on a baby’s palette thing is sorta true my mom ate a lot of pizza while pregnant with me and guess what? I hate pizza

  • A stranger who I just met at the post office, who appeared to be a nurse because she was wearing scrubs, asked if I was having a girl (she was right). I have no idea how she guessed. Maybe she was picking up on other subconscious cues like how I was dressed (more feminine, wearing a floral skirt) and how I was touching my belly? Like maybe I subconsciously act more protectively because she is a girl? I would really like to know. She said it was just how I was carrying.

  • I enjoyed this video a lot. This was the first ob reacts that ive watched that she wasn’t correcting things. Her reaction was clearly shock like anyone else not scepticism.
