SweMaMi - Do you want to help us to understand how our bacterial flora affects 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. Our hope for the future is to be able to improve the prevention of preterm births and other complications of pregnancy.
