Cheryl Sew Hoy is our guest today and she is the founder of Tiny Health; a company that specializes in at-home gut health tests for moms and babies. I use this company with my own son and with my patients. My only regret is that Tiny Health wasn’t around sooner!
In our conversation, Cheryl explains what the word microbiome even means. Some of you may be very familiar with that term, but for those of you who are not, she has a great way of explaining the importance of the makeup of microbiome and the role it plays in preconception, pregnancy, baby and childhood years.
If you are a parent worried about your baby’s start - maybe they spent some time in the NICU, were on antibiotics, or had an inability to breastfeed - Cheryl shares her top recommendations on what you can do to optimize their first 1000 days in order for them to develop the healthiest gut health.
Cheryl also shares how the Tiny Health tests can help those of you whose first child was at a high risk for atopic diseases like eczema, allergies, or asthma in subsequent pregnancies. You also might be wondering if there are benefits to testing moms vaginal microbiome in pregnancy and if that is something that can affect her Group B Strep status? Well, Cheryl gives us an answer to that question as well.
The future of microbiome in medicine is an exciting one. Tune in to this episode to learn about all things gut health!
