Maternal probiotic intake during pregnancy and breastfeeding complications - project description

Published

This project will study the association of dietary intake of probiotics during pregnancy and breastfeeding complications.


Summary

Recent studies suggest that breast inflammation may be caused by an imbalance in the bacterial flora of the breast rather than a mere infection with pathogenic bacteria.

Probiotics have been shown to be as effective or even more effective than antibiotics in treating lactational mastitis. The preventive effect of probiotic consumption on the incidence of lactational mastitis has not yet been studied. Our theory is that the probiotics, through an anti-inflammatory effect and stabilisation of the healthy breast flora, might reduce the risk of mastitis.

In this project we want to study the association of dietary intake of probiotics during pregnancy and breastfeeding complications.
