When it comes to pregnancy and health, many mothers, mothers-in-law, grandmothers, your neighbour aunty would have a lot of advice and opinions on how to take care of yourself and your baby.

Some of the advice is rather true, but some are just folk tales. Hence, when it comes to probiotics, a lot of people may have misconceptions on:

What they are and what they do — are they safe for pregnant mothers?

What kind of impact would they have on their child?

Would it cause heatiness?

Later miscarriage how?

And many more.

How Do Probiotics Work During Pregnancy?




Probiotic helps in restoring your gut microbiome to a healthy level while prebiotic acts as fuel for your probiotics.

Once your gut microbiome is restored, it would greatly improve your general digestion health, but with different strains, they have different benefits and support for consumers too. Probiotics that are mentioned in this article are safe for most healthy individuals of all ages.

Research has shown that a mother’s gut microbiome can not only provide benefits to the mother but also the baby as well. Especially during the birthing process.

If the infant was delivered through vaginal instead of caesarean section, the infant would have been exposed to millions of microorganisms which is important in improving the baby’s immune system and health.

Having enough gut microbiome from probiotics could ensure the microbes exposed by the infant are at their best. During lactation, breastfed infants still get the probiotic’s benefits through breastmilk from their mothers as well which has been proven to greatly improve an infant’s immune system, reduce the risk of allergies, and promote better growth.

Furthermore, throughout pregnancy, mothers tend to experience a lot of difficulties in terms of digestion, constipation, big appetite or lack thereof, and bowel movement. Consuming probiotics and prebiotics during pregnancy could greatly aid gut health and digestion.

Is Probiotic Safe For Pregnant Mothers & Breastfeeding Mothers?


This is probably the first question that comes to mind when pregnant mothers are advised to eat more probiotics.


The short answer is YES, they are completely safe to consume.


The probiotics strains that are mentioned in this article are highly recommended as they are well researched and can give the mother and infant many benefits.


But a general rule of thumb for people who may not be suitable in taking probiotics, including pregnant mothers are:


People who are immunocompromised or have autoimmune disorders (eg: cancer, lupus, multiple sclerosis etc).


Known allergy to certain bacteria or yeast in probiotics.


Pancreatitis (they do may worsen the infection duration)


Critically ill or recovering from major surgery.


If you wish to consume probiotics, you are more than welcome to discuss with your doctor or your OBGYN (Obstetrician and Gynaecologist).


You can find out more about probiotics and their respective strains on Probiotic Database.


How Often Should I Consume Probiotics?


Generally, it would be recommended to consume once a day and stay consistent.


Probiotics can colonize our gut after 3-4 days of consumption and will die after 2 weeks of not consuming it. Different strains of probiotics may have varied dosages or CFU to be consumed.


Furthermore, most probiotics are required to be refrigerated or have a shorter shelf-life as probiotics tend to denature and die if exposed to heat or left too long.


For YourGutt Prebiotic + Probiotic Malaysia, we recommend consuming one sachet a day for the best of your gut health with no worries in storage and dosage as our probiotics are heat resistant and encapsulated, guaranteed 99% of survival of 1b CFU of probiotics in your gut.

What Foods Should Be Avoided During Pregnancy


Aside from the mother-in-law’s list of food to avoid, some food may be more scientifically and clinically found to be harmful to pregnant mothers and are advised to avoid:


Deep-sea Fishes


They contain heavy metals such as mercury which is harmful to an infant’s neurodevelopment. You can still consume them but at a minimal level.


Uncooked, Partially Cooked, Raw Meat/Food


Any form of undercooked or raw food has a higher risk of food poisoning, contamination, and bacterial/viral infection which could harm the baby. It is highly encouraged to eat food that is cooked thoroughly and that is clean.


Mould-ripened Cheese


Similar to raw or undercooked food, mould-ripened cheese contains fungus and bacteria which may cause food poisoning and contamination which could harm the baby.


Alcohol


Consuming alcohol during pregnancy will cause the baby to develop fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). Alcohol would cause the baby to be unable to develop properly and result in poor brain development and cognitive skill.


Caffeine


Limit your caffeine consumption to 200mg a day, which is about 1 cup of coffee a day. There are contradicting papers that suggest it may cause miscarriage if consumed too much but are not conclusive yet. However, consuming too much caffeine does impair nutrient absorption as well as causing digestive issues, which is important to have a healthy gut and healthy baby development. Caffeine can be found in chocolates, teas, and carbonated drinks as well.


Takeaway


All mothers want nothing but their growing babies. It is always important to practise moderation in diet, and commit to a well-rounded eating plan consisting of all essential nutrition. Seek professional advice from health professionals any time should you have doubts. If you would like to understand your gut health, feel free to get a quick free assessment and advice from us.
