Questions for Discussion

Questions for consideration and discussion, future WARM workshops and CEU's. Please consider this an invitation for members and the public to submit articles with answers and information relating to these questions.

On the Microbiome: by Eudine Stevens

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?
