Mothers facing C-sections look to vaginal 'seeding' to boost their babies' health

Abby BlockComment

"Dominguez-Bello, a microbiologist from NYU, has been studying the microbiome for several years. For the past three she’s been trying to determine if C-section babies can reap the benefits of a vaginal birth through the process of seeding with gauze that’s been incubated in its mother’s vagina. So far, the results are very promising."
