with Martha V. Douglas-Escobar, MD, FAAP

Martha V. Douglas-Escobar, MD, FAAP
Natividad Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Director

Up to 90% of all disease can be traced in some way back to the gut and health of the microbiome; More than 10,000 different microbe species have been identified living in the human body; There are 10 times as many outside organisms as there are human cells in the human body: The maternal microbiome is recognized as a key determinant of a range of important maternal and child health outcomes, and together with perinatal factors influences the infant microbiome. Dr. Douglas-Escobar will be presenting this activity on the Maternal-Fetal Microbiome.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Strategies to protect and restore microbial diversity;
  • Assess medical consequences of an altered microbiome;
  • Discuss influences of the early establishment of the microbiome:  Maternal-Fetal environment and Ex-Utero determinants.
