I thought I'd replay one of my most popular (and fascinating!) episodes for you this week since we're right in the middle of the holidays. I learned so much from Dr. Sarina Pasricha in this interview, and I found even more gems when I re-listened.
Dr. Sarina Pasricha is an adult gastroenterologist and an expert on our human gut microbiome. This is still an emerging area of study, and we learn more about our gut microbiomes all the time. There is some especially interesting research on the microbiomes of pregnant women, and that's what we focus on in this episode.
Dr. Pasricha and I start off talking about what exactly the gut microbiome is, why it's important, and what you can do to support it before, during, and after your pregnancy.
We also talk about the importance of your baby's gut microbiome and what you can do to help them develop a healthy one right off the bat. Dr. Pasricha shares tons of practical tips in this episode, including how many fruits and veggies you should aim to eat, why breastfeeding is great for baby, and how to help your baby build up their immune system.
