About the test
Tiny Health’s pregnancy microbiome report will help you find out if you have the right microbes to pass on to your baby and how you can take action to optimize microbiome seeding at birth.
Pregnancy gut and vaginal sample: Tiny Health’s pregnancy microbiome report gives an overview of your gut and vaginal microbial environment, including information about beneficial bacteria, inflammation, and disease associations such as preterm birth, bacterial vaginosis, infection and metabolic health.
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.
Because a mom’s health has the potential to impact her baby’s well being, suggestions on how to improve or optimize microbiome health, such as dietary interventions or probiotic supplementation, or target potential dysbiosis are included.
