Questions for Discussion
How do the hormones released (oxytocin/endorphins or adrenaline) in labor effect the microbiome colonization of the vaginal secretions during birth?
Do the hormones sent to baby through the placenta impact how baby’s immune system receives the microbiome and what long-term effects will that have on baby?
Does a similar biofeedback mechanism happen between vaginal microbiome and hormones as there is in baby saliva and breast milk composition?
