We're so excited to invite you to our upcoming Keynote Presentation by the wonderful Penny Simkin, PT, BA! Titled "Maternity Care Practices and their Impact on the Microbiome," Penny's talk will offer valuable information on the development of a healthy infant microbiome and the lifelong effects on the child's health. She takes us on a microscopic journey that discusses the transfer of microbes between the mother-baby unit when looking at the method of birth (vaginal birth vs. caesarean delivery), feeding practices (breastfeeding vs. formula feeding) and during skin to skin contact.
