Dr. Elana interviews Dr. Gabriela Sheets, a human biologist and mama who has spent over a decade researching the early development of the infant microbiome (how babies acquire important microorganisms in and on their bodies). Her research has earned her numerous grants and awards, yet her passion lies in sharing this information with those who can make the most difference for the next generation: moms! 

In her time away from her deliciously wild three year old, Gabriela consults with mamas, practitioners and companies in all things microbiome. To make this valuable and actionable information more widely accessible, Gabriela is developing a series of online educational programs for young families and practitioners. Most recently, she has teamed up with our friends over at Needed to support their prenatal program and to co-develop their upcoming infant/kids line. Gabriela believes we can support human thriving, one mama and baby at a time!

In today’s episode, they discussed how a mom’s microbiome affects babies, what to look for in purchasing probiotics, how to read the labels, testing microbiome health, and more!

We are so grateful to our podcast partner, Needed, for connecting us with Dr. Gabriela. She is such a wealth of knowledge you will love this episode and want to share it with all the mamas you know!  And please don’t forget that Needed continues to come out with new and innovative products! Not only do they offer our favorite prenatal and pre/probiotic, they also just recently came out with a digestive enzyme that is safe during pregnancy and nursing. Their formula contains 14 clinically-backed types of digestive enzymes that support the optimal digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, as well as sensitive foods like dairy, gluten, and legumes, throughout the entire spectrum of your digestive tract.
