Fascinating read as a midwife
I was really interested in this book, it held lots of brand new information to me about our bodies and how the bacteria in our bodies can affect us for life. This book focuses specifically on this in relation to the newborn, both during the birth process and during feeding. It is written by the filmmakers of 'Microbirth' to accompany the film and, having not seen the film, I found it very interesting to learn the findings of the studies so far. It contains QR codes after each section so that you can watch interviews and see more visual aspects, which was a great feature. The book, whilst complex in content was written in a way which was understandable for most people and not too scientific. I sometimes found it a bit samey and I felt that it could easily have been condensed into a good article, rather than stretching it into a whole book, hence the 4 stars. But a fascinating read and very thought-provoking in my career as a midwife.
