Vaginal seeding (micro birthing) is a practice during caesarean section which involves taking a swab from the mother’s vagina and wiping this over the baby’s eyes, mouth, face and skin immediately after birth. This practice has become popular as it was observed that babies born through Cesarean-section miss out on certain helpful vaginal microbes that might help to shield the infants from allergies, asthma and immune disorders. Studies say that contact with healthy vaginal bacteria helps to prevent the growth of dangerous bacteria, stimulates the infant immune system and regulates the gut. For instance, Dr. Jennifer Wu, a gynecologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City conducted various tests and also came across many patients reading about the benefits of a vaginal delivery and hope to recreate these benefits with vaginal seeding.
