WEDNESDAY, Oct. 25, 2017 (HealthDay News) The U.S.’s leading group of obstetricians and gynecologists is warning against a new trend where babies born by C-section are “seeded” via cotton swabs with vaginal microbes from the mother. ‘Vaginal Seeding’ — obstetricians and gynaecologists warn expectant mothers against the new trend The new trend sees mothers who have cesarean births “seeding” their babies. 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”. Other moms eat their baby’s placenta.

Add this trend to the list: vaginal seeding. It’s when newborns delivered by C-section are swabbed with their mother’s vaginal fluid soon after birth. The.

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.

List of related literature:

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.

  • 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.
    1 Corinthians 1:27 (DBY) But God has chosen the foolish things of the world, that he may put to shame the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world, that he may put to shame the strong things;

  • 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.

  • Ok, I don’t know how professional these gynecologists are, but eating smoked salmon has a HIGH risk of listeria especially when store-bought and vacuum packed (not home-smoked and eaten fresh, hot). And as listeria is very harmful to the fetus I think eating such a product would be an unnecessary risk to take for pregnant women.

  • This is really helpful, I wish I had seen this video earlier! You two ladies are so kind and knowledgeable, thank you for making such a nice video for us:)

  • This is really helpful. Im not pregnant or will be anytime soon and I aslo dont have my own but knowing this before hand is really helpful. I know very little about this topic so it’s nice to learn about it

  • to all people who’s asking why the hell they still watch this video although it has nothing to do with them: there’s nothing wrong with getting yourself educated and well-informed. you can share this knowledge with your relatives and that would be totally helpful. ��

  • @MamaDoctorJones I know this video is old.. new subscriber here ����☺️ but I found the “egg” by the plant it’s a grey elephant?? I thought it was writing on the pot at first lol I’m sure someone else found this long ago but I was given a challenge and want to see if I’m right lol I love your channel and you! So happy I found you!

  • If I was ever in this situation I would have done exactly what this mother did. I have the mindset that I would rather die than let my baby die. I don’t have children but I really want to have one in the future. I love babies and am interested in becoming an ob/gyn! Love your show Mama Doctor Jones!

  • OMG, our brains don’t stop developing until we’re in our 20’s. Then we have organizations that exist who say it’s ok for pregnant moms to drink. Hideous
    Anyway, do something good for yourself if you;re pregnant and get your birth recovery box early! nurseinabox.com they might have discount codes somewhere but its decent value still

  • It’s astonishing how people will just believe any stupid thing you tell them if you present it like a fact.
    Btw did you know you can’t handle tarantulas while pregnant because their hairs can get into your uterus and hurt the baby?

  • Lmao walk outside? What if your pregnant during a summer in Las Vegas? That’s a no go for me at this point.I only go out for important things but it gets way too hot for me and it’s agonizing ��

  • I have 3 brothers with fetal alcohol syndrome (mental retardation due to exposure to alcohol in the womb). It is NEVER ok to drink while pregnant!

  • I’m 7 months pregnant and this was really helpful but a little late on some lol. I’m also very thankful that I’m having a very easy pregnancy. Cx

  • I had to pause for a sec when I heard Plymouth as thats where i live. Turns out she gave birth in the same hospital I had my daughter lol.

  • The smoked fish part is also abt listeria. Usually smoked salmone is sold and stored and served as cold deli and so it can have growth of listeria. It’s fine to use in cooked dish though as long as it is heated enough.

  • as somebody being pregnant and hearing medical advises from 3 different european country gyns i feel that american gyns have a very different “evidence” O.o there were some myths in here that these two completely debunked but where i (or my friends) live, doctors do tell you that it’s not recommended. for example smoked salmon is considered risky as any other “not completely cooked meat” and should be avoided because of possible bacterias, but if you prepare it with heat (steamed, cooked, baked, fried etc) salmon is ofc recommeded but not more than 2-3 times a week (same goes for all the other “healthy” fish during pregnancy. that’s legit written in every book pregnant women get from doctor O.o spicy food and labor i am not sure but they tell you to avoid spicy food because it an induce miscarriage (so if you are late in pregnancy it might induce labor i guess?) and more like a third of those myths here that they debunked totally is considered actual medical advices here, not a myth O.o can somebody explain me how can european and american doctor have so different “evidence” to go by? for example here they will recommend you to avoid coffee. it’s not the end of the world if you have a cup here and there (not as problematic as wine) but it is still recommended to stay away from it (and teas and any other drink with caffeine) unless it’s a decaf, then it’s not really limited:D
    are american pregnancy that much different from europeans or what O.o

  • It is in fact safe to drink while breastfeeding. The alcohol percentage will be so low in the actual milk, it’s basically non-existent. However, you should not be drunk while you take care of a baby, regardless if you are a man or woman.

  • Would she even be able to give birth vaginally? Since its on the outside of the bowel and not close to an opening like the vagina, wouldn’t they have to preform a c-section?

  • I love how a good portion of the comments here are from men, who felt the need to let us all know; they’re not pregnant lmaoo you guys are awesome XD

  • There’s actually new research that suggest the food you eat might actually impact their palate but in the last trimesters and breastfeeding.

  • For myth 24, i was going to get an epidural but then my mom told me what that they had to put a needle in my spine and if i moved i could become paralyzed. Natural birth was good and the worst part was actually the labor.

  • 2 years ago i had scar ectopic twins, where they attached to my csec scar. I had to travel to a specialist hospital at 14 weeks where i had emergency surgery to save my life. Sadly i lost my babies

  • but, for this to happen, how did the little bugger escape the ovaries/tubes/uterus/etc in the first place? how can an egg escape the system without popping a hole in somewhere?

  • People keep telling me to eat more because I’m pregnant and I’m like no it doesn’t work that way…My husband also said my stretch marks are dark because I don’t moisturize enough but little does he know there’s no magic anti stretch mark cream aha, it’s because I’m 9 months pregnant you donut!

  • My latina mother bother me so much be cause my 2 cats I need this video in Spanish

    Lemon is the best thing

    My morning sickness is the whole day:(

  • Doctor Laura Riley is so beautiful and she seems to really want to explain and teach pregnant woman this info, I can see she loves her jobb��

  • I know of a major YouTuber who had this happen. Both of the babies died and she almost did as well. She was given Methotrexate as well but I don’t follow her closely and this was a few years ago but she’s now pregnant with her second child. Her name is Shannon Rose I believe. FYI, she did conceive through IVF with her first (girl) and also again with her second (boy). I think she was pregnant with twins in the beginning of this pregnancy but lost one early on. She has quite a history but seems to have turned her life around.

  • I think they look for to much evidence and dont look at common sense?!? Your telling me that if i was to go dye my hair witch lets say its a blonde hair dye that contains bleach in it.. That the smell of chemicals will not harm a baby the size of a pee? Cuz last time I checked I am a grown woman and the smell of hair dye bothers me…?? Use common sense not things that are not studied….

  • I’ve only been induced. (3 times) I’d love for this time my body go into labor on it’s own ��. I was told induction is more painful, I’m glad you cleared that up. I’d like to experience both for myself though.

  • Watching this while pregnant and drinking my coffee. I drink half-caff so I can still have two cups instead of the recommended one.:)

  • I know this is a video from 2019, but i think the Easter egg is the rhino, or elephant that’s in the background. Can’t tell what it is exactly but its there

  • I was born premature and weighed 2lbs 3oz (a teeny bit heavier than the baby in the video) and could fit in my mom’s hand. iirc, my hospital band was about as big as a quarter (I haven’t seen it in a while, so I could be wrong). my biological mother made some extremely poor choices when she was pregnant with me, and according to her, she had some heavy bleeding one day and talked to two different doctors(…?); one supposedly said she had a miscarriage while the other said she didn’t.

    I’ve been told that when I was born, I was constantly shaking and crying due to withdrawals. my adoptive grandma was afraid to hold me because I had so many wires(?) and tubes attached to me.

    a few years ago I had a neuro/psych exam, and it turns out that my anxiety and depression were caused by the choices my bio mom made. according to the doc who was in charge of my exam, I will always have depression and anxiety to some extent for the rest of my life

  • My in my sisterinlaws pregnancy she started eating fast food during breast feeding and.my niece was constipated..there’s just no way around this shit…��

  • Fetal alcohol syndrome baby happens when a pregnant woman drinks alcohol and causes facial deformities and brain damage to the fetus

  • Why do they keep telling me these thoughts are myths? Isn’t that the whole point, that they are reading myths? Like we know what we signed up for

  • I’m barely 2 months pregnant and my gynecologist said I could not dye my hair or even paint my nails during my pregnancy. I need to change my doct.

  • Would you recommend pregnancy with someone with brain injuries, epilepsy, and hormonal/emotional triggered non epileptic seizures? I had period triggered episodes, so secer I had an iud implanted to end my periods.

  • When i Miscarried at 8 months.I didn’t experience bleeding or neausea.There was nothing.I didnt even know i miscarried until i went into my appointment and they told me he didnt have a heart beat.Then after i delivered him.I ended up loosing his brother or sister whom i didnt even know existed until i took this thing to my obgyn and they ran test and told me i had miscarried twins.

  • This is an amazing story. God bless them and their little boy. I’m so glad mother and baby came through it alright.:)

    Religion says look at yourself. Grace says look at the Lord Jesus Christ. Religion says look at your works. Grace says look at the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ for our sins. Religion says you must give God your life. Grace says God gave you his life, just receive. Religion says you must love God. Grace says God loves you. Religion says God comes and goes based upon your behavior. Grace says once saved I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Religion says sin can remove you from salvation. Grace says once saved you are a purchased possession sealed by the Holy Spirit of God. Religion is dead and cannot give life. Grace is the Lord Jesus Christ and all he gives is life! <3 Salvation is not an earned reward but a free gift from God <3 we do not deserve Ephesians 2:8-9 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 1:18, KJV <3 ✝<3 It's not what we do, but what Christ has done for us that saves us. If you’re trusting in anything other than the finished work of Christ then you’re trusting in yourself instead of trusting in Christ alone. Salvation is not based on what we're doing for God, but what God has done for us. Our performance doesn't merit salvation. No amount of works can contribute to salvation. Satan tricks people into thinking that they're saved based on their behavior, the problem then becomes is that people trust in their ability to save themselves or keep themselves saved. No one can keep themselves saved, only Jesus does. Many people want to play a part in their salvation by trying to do their best, when in reality, our best could never be good enough. It comes down to this, either you trust in Christ's finished work, that He died to pay for your sins by shedding His blood was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures for your justification or you trust what you’re doing. What Christ did was enough. IT IS FINISHED the question is. Will you receive it? Believe the gospel ALONE. Romans 4:5King James Version (KJV) "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Titus 3:5King James Version (KJV) "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" Ephesians 2:8-9King James Version (KJV) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Galatians 2:16King James Version (KJV) “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 King James Version (KJV) 3 “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 1:18 King James Version (KJV) “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”

  • So according to an article I just read about this pregancy/birth (google Derriford Hospital abdominal pregnancy, dated August 2008) it WAS a sandwich bag! From Tesco (one of the main supermarkets in the UK) I guess if you can buy a box of those and they work why pay more for something ‘special’!

  • I can’t tell you how much I appreciate how careful you are with your language, especially regarding sensitive topics. Your videos are incredibly educational. Thank you.

  • Given the life-threatening severity of this situation (this couple sound like they’re in the UK ����?), I would have thought that an air ambulance (helicopter) or at least an advanced paramedic team (usually a trauma doctor & an experienced medic) could come out to them. The advanced paramedic teams can do RSI anesthesia in the field, and many teams carry blood as a part of their equipment (probably not common 10 years ago).

  • My grandmother had a couple ectopic pregnancies, all in the fallopian tube, she struggled with carrying a baby to term and suffered 7 miscarriages between my aunt and my mom. Possibly more. It is something that threatened her life, but she was a survivor.
    Very scary stuff.

  • 1. In the UK if you call an ambulance you often have to wait a LONG time. My friend delivered a baby at home and lay hemorrhaging for 45 minutes waiting for the ambulance.
    2. On our neonatal unit the plastic bags really were like plastic sandwich bags, not sheets or blankets.

  • I love your t-shirt!
    I worked at Derriford Hospital it covers a huge mainly rural population. I absolutely agree they should have called an ambulance

  • There is scientific confirmation, that the newborn are getting there first bacteria for their skins and their gut flora in the process of a natural birth in the vaginal tract. Its even so nesassary that in europe in unavoidable c-sections, they put a cloth in the vaginal tract and rub the baby with it.

    Those bacteria in combination with the breast milk, protect the newborn from harmful bacteria and colonize the gut to help them process food and much more.
    Its even proofed that c-sections child wo dont get those vaginal tract bacteria are more prone to allergic disease, asmathic and more.

  • Did a bit of research on this 36 people involved in the delivery, but genuinely using supermarket sandwich bags to keep the baby warm…I guess the nhs knows where to cut corners for its budget. Really interesting video though. It’s a horrifying the ambulance service is so underfunded though in rural areas. I remember a friend telling me it’s a 4 hour trip to hospital and they only have two ambulances for a really large area. Funding is based on year round population only, which has the oversight of really lovely rural areas attracting usually older tourists in summer, then tragedies happening…

    Would you mind doing a video on why around having a period the immune system is really bad…I feel there’s a connection, but I don’t know if it’s something I have made up??

  • Would realistic foetal viability have been discussed at 26weeks considering there were questions about placenta condition right from the start?
    If mums best chance of survival had been immediate delivery because every movement baby made was risking bowel rupture, haemorrhage and/or septic peritonitis; would termination have been allowed because of the high likelihood that the placenta had been insufficient and in addition to extreme prematurity, the baby would be underdeveloped with insufficiencies and potential toxicities from the having a blood supply from the bowels (blood relatively well oxygenated but in the digestive tract on the way TO the liver, so containing the most waste products from the body as well as absorbed food and all ingested “poisons” before first pass liver metabolism).

  • Just because something hasn’t been scientifically studied, doesn’t mean it is a myth….Unless it has been debunked, it should be called a hypothesis.

  • Coffee can cause a miscarriage in the first trimester ‘but it’s safe to drink for the rest of the pregnancy’, what silly advice. Seriously getting pregnant isn’t easy (only junkies seem to be very fertile) so DON’T DRINK COFFEE AT ALL.

  • Literally anyone who believes it’s okay to drink or so drugs while pregnant should be immediately arrested. It is child abuse full stop.

  • Le sigh. Ambulance or yourself. Yes you will get there a few mins faster. You are worried something will happen while waiting. But at least you are in a home and help is on the way. If you are in transit it would be ten times worse. But I get it. That fear is overwhelming.

  • I currently have a 7w abdominal ectopic pregnancy, it seems baby has implanted on the overie on my right, had 2 scans, want to keep the baby baby is healthy, any estemations on blood n nutrients supply baby cn get? I’m 26

  • My friend’s 3 months pregnant, and since I’m great at researching and remembering information, I’m getting myself informed about this stuff. She’s 15 years old and is keeping her child. Your channel is really helpful.
    My friend will be a great parent. We’re friends because of our weird brains. Despite being kids, we speak and think like adults. This means that she is mature enough to look after her baby.

  • I realized that I was just as premature as the baby when I was born… I did have medical problems, almost all of them are gone but I do have very tight leg muscles. I weighed around a pound at birth, so I’ve been told.

  • I believe in laying on your Left side is the most healthiest bc it was true during both my pregnancies. If I laid on my back my baby heart rate went down. If I laid on my right it also went down but on the left heart rate went back up and stable. All of this was while I was on the monitor at 38 wks pregnant. So I personally will continue to follow that myth then about sleeping on your left side

  • OMG, it gets worse as I watch! ‘Mercury is fish is blown out of proportion’? She obviously has no idea about majority of Fish being factory farmed and literally swimming in their own shit and also our Oceans are so polluted almost nothing is healthy anymore.

  • I just want to snatch that one dangling strand of grey hair out of her head. I don’t know why but it’s freaking driving me nuts. That one strand. LOL! I know… I have issues. LOL! Good myth busting though. Thanks for the info. ������

  • I’m looking at that little rhino thing and trying to make sure I’m right while the camera just completely disregards my wishes by NEVER KEEPING IT IN FOCUS������

  • As someone from the UK, I’m sorry to say I feel he made the right choice driving her. We have long ambulance waiting times for rural communities and whilst I agree at least being in a medical vehicle would have been of best benefit, under the best possible supervision, they may have been waiting an hour for the arrival of one..

  • “just call an ambulance” I don’t think you’ve ever had to pay for an ambulance bill. My step mom paid $200 just to go down the road to the hospital. How much more would it be for a 50 mile ride? You’d have to cut of your arm leg sell a kidney and whatever you can live without just to pay it off!

  • Lol at that OBGYN Lying about the alcohol. I get it, you are covering your asses, but don’t treat educated women like children and lie to them.. Shameful.
