SweMaMi - How does our bacterial flora affect our health during pregnancy?

There is an immense amount of bacteria found on and in our bodies, which scientists have only recently been able to map with the help of new research techniques. Most bacteria have been found to be beneficial for us and are believed to have an important role for our health and wellbeing. Our aim with the SweMaMi project is to investigate how the balance of bacterial flora during pregnancy is related to the health of expecting mothers and their child.
