There may be nobody as vulnerable to manipulation as a mother worried about her child’s health. The question of whether we’re doing right by our kids cuts straight to the maternal heart. The problem is that in this age of marketing vs. activism, we’re overwhelmed and paralyzed by the debates about what’s best. It’s not surprising, then, that there was an uproar when the New York Times reported on July 8 that the Trump Administration had tried to dilute a resolution at the World Health Assembly this spring that called on all nations to “protect, promote and support breastfeeding.” T...

Antibiotic use during infancy alters gut microbiota and immune development and is associated with an increased risk of childhood asthma. The impact of prenatal antibiotic exposure is unclear. We sought to characterise the association between prenatal antibiotic exposure and childhood asthma. We performed a population-based cohort study using prescription records, hospitalisation records and physician billing claims from 213 661 mother–child dyads born in Manitoba, Canada between 1996 and 2012. Associations were determined using Cox regression, adjusting for maternal asthma, postnatal antibiotics and other potential c...

Global antibiotic use has risen 65% worldwide and 114% in low- and middle-income countries between 2000 and 2015 [1]. During pregnancy, anywhere from 20% to over 40% of women may receive a course of antibiotics [2, 3], and antibiotics account for 80% of medications used by pregnant women in the USA [4]. Although antibiotics in pregnancy can treat many infections, including bacterial vaginosis and urinary tract infections, they may also have unintended adverse consequences [4]. Given the ubiquitous exposure to antibiotics in pregnancy, even a small adverse effect of maternal antibiotic use on health outcomes in the mother o...
