Root Cause Assessment (C-Section)
Who is this for?
Babies from 0-12 months old.
How does it work?
The Root Cause Assessment will help you determine if there are any imbalances in your baby's gut microbiome that may be contributing to inflammatory conditions, or if your baby has a microbiome risk for developing inflammatory conditions in the future.
After you place an order, your baby gut sample collection kit will be mailed to you and arrives within 3 - 5 days. Sampling is easy. It takes less than 5 minutes and can be done at home. Follow your sample collection kit instructions and register your test, then mail your sample back to our lab.
Once your sample is processed, you will receive a comprehensive microbiome report with Key Insights and a personalized Action Plan that may include supplement, dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
When your results are ready, a microbiome coach will meet with you to thoroughly review your baby's results and help you to determine if your baby's gut microbiome is contributing to any inflammatory conditions your baby is currently struggling with. They will also discuss whether or not there is an increased microbiome risk for developing future conditions, and the best action to take to course correct and optimize your baby's gut.

About the test
Tiny Health’s baby gut report gives an overview of your baby’s gut microbial environment, which is characterized as one of seven Tiny Health Baby Gut Types. Your baby’s gut report shares information about beneficial bacteria, baby gut dysbiosis, and disease associations.
Baby's gut sample, 7-day after birth: These are the first microbes that colonize a baby’s gut and will leave an immune imprint that will last a long time. This early sample can show you how to positively change the gut microbiome.
Baby’s gut sample, at 3 months and 12 months: These samples can shed some light on whether a baby has biomarkers associated with eczema, allergies, and asthma.
Baby’s gut sample, at 6 months: This sample can explain how a change in diet may impact a baby’s microbiome. For example, how breastmilk, formula, or solids change the microbiome.
Our evidence-based reports include actionable recommendations that are customized to your baby’s Tiny Health Gut Type.
