Seeding Your Baby's Microbiome - Ensuring Health and Vitality For You and Your Babe

  • The Light Cellar 6326 Bowness Road Northwest Calgary, AB, T3B 0E5 Canada (map)

Whether you are a soon-to-be parent; contemplating starting a family; or even if it is your first or seventh, this is a class designed for you.

The health and vitality of your own microbiome has the biggest influence and sway on that of your baby's microbiome. Your microbiome is that population of 100 trillion bugs and fungi that live on all of your skin surfaces, inside and out including your mouth, intestines, uro-genital areas and the skin on our bodies. Your little one's microbiome is planted or seeded through your own bacterial community via the placenta, the birth canal, via skin-to-skin contact and through breastmilk. These microscopic beings play a complex and essential role in your baby's overall health, right from birth. They are so essential as they play a dynamic role in setting up a strong immune system and can help lower the susceptibility to a variety of diseases, from asthma to diabetes, cancer to autoimmune disorders.

The best time to enhance your microbiome health and therefore that of your baby, is pre-birth. Taking care to balance your own microbiome before baby's arrival is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your new babe, setting the stage for them to have a long, healthy and happy life.

I will be demo-ing how to make your own creme fraiche, and how to turn it into fermented iced cream. We will all pull up our shirtsleeves and get into making our own fermented dilly carrots! Every participant will get to take home their own hand made batch. I will have samples at the class as well so you can anticipate what the flavours will be.
