Baby’s health starts with you

From preconception through breastfeeding, your baby's gut gets seeded with your vaginal and gut microbes. These microbes shape your baby's lifelong health in the first 1,000 days. Beneficial bacteria support both a healthy pregnancy - and your baby's immune development

Evidence-based care for your reproductive health

If you're trying to conceive or experiencing fertility challenges, the answer may lie in your vaginal or gut microbiome. Get personalized and integrative coaching, and reduce your microbiome risk of pregnancy-related conditions like preterm labor and gestational diabetes.

We started our journey with Tiny Health when I was pregnant and immediately took action when I realized I didn’t have some microbes that are essential for my baby’s gut health. Now my baby is 3 months old and we can't wait to do another sample to track how her gut is evolving.
Amy B.
I would 100% recommend this to anyone who is pregnant. I was blown away by how actionable the report was, and it was very reassuring to see those positive changes in my baby’s gut early on.
Ashley B.
As a first-time mom, I didn’t realize the impact my diet during pregnancy could have on my baby’s microbiome. Based on Tiny Health’s reports, I was able to adjust my diet and take the necessary steps to ensure that my baby is healthy. When my son was born, we tested his gut and followed Tiny Health’s recommendations to address his gut health. After 4 months, we retook the test and saw a drastic improvement. We’re thankful to be able to identify and take action to adjust his microbiome early on to make his immune system stronger.

As a mom to a child with allergies, I am grateful for these actionable suggestions to strengthen her microbiome. I only wish I had found it when I was pregnant!

Hear from other people raving about Tiny Health

The first gut test designed with families in mind

Tiny Health was founded by Cheryl, a Mom looking to heal her baby’s microbiome after a C-Section birth. Unable to find clear, reliable answers anywhere she quickly realized that the only gut microbiome tests on the market were designed for grown-ups, not babies, leading to inaccurate results. She set out to create the first ever test to measure the microbiome health of babies during the critical first 1,000 days of life

Frequently asked questions

During the first 1,000 days of a baby’s life, a type of programming takes place. This programming helps to determine a child’s lifelong health and has been directly linked to a wide range of metabolic and immune mediated disorders that fit under the umbrella of chronic disease, sometimes referred to as noncommunicable disease or noninfectious disease. And because of something called epigenetics, programming can even be carried from one generation to the next.

No pressure or anything.

During a baby’s first 1000 days, you have the opportunity to make a big impact in everyday ways, like simple lifestyle or diet shifts.

As a baby grows, their gut matures and their immune system gets a little more skilled at identifying friend versus foe. Gut maturity is marked by diversity. After birth, the first major leap we see is when a baby begins eating solid food.

Parents have the biggest impact on a baby’s gut health during pregnancy and a baby’s first 12 months. As a toddler, there are gradual shifts towards a more diverse and adult-like microbiome that stabilizes between 3 and 5 years old.

Factors that affect baby gut health include vaginal birth or C-section, breastfeeding or formula feeding, and the use of antibiotics.

Please visit our Help Center for any question we may not have answered here.

We use a stool test collected with a lab-certified sampling swab from soiled tissue paper.

The process is simple and unlike other tests on the market, Tiny Health doesn't require gloves, a spoon-like collection device, or that you handle stool at all, other than on a regular tissue paper.

The sample is then stored in the included container and zippered back and mailed back to us on the prepaid envelope included with your kit.

In short, it’s never too late to test. The sooner you have a baseline sample, the better.

Keep in mind that the gut is still developing until the age of 3 - 5 years old. Up until this point, you have an opportunity to check in on your little one’s gut health and make changes, if needed.

For older children, testing can reveal a lot about their gut health. Including levels of hidden gut inflammation, levels of bacteria that make anti-inflammatory short-chain fatty acids, microbiome diversity, and biomarkers for immune health and fiber digestion.

Even if your child’s gut has reached adult-maturity, there’s still an opportunity to influence their dietary, supplement needs, and lifestyle choices.

Please visit our Help Center for any question we may not have answered here.

Conventional medical practitioners don’t get training for microbiome health and as such, are not always familiar with the latest research and recommendations in this field of medicine. However, our tests are developed by a team of leading pediatric scientists and physicians who are on the cutting edge of this impactful field.

Often, it’s up to your doctor to keep up on the latest research and most don’t have the time. In addition to this, it can take 10 - 15 years for academic research to be put into medical practice. So it’s possible that your doctor hasn’t heard about the gut microbiome.

But that doesn’t mean that it’s something to wait on. Especially during pregnancy and the first few years of life.

Recent studies show just how important the microbiome is to your baby’s immune development. You can use microbiome testing to make sure your baby has bacteria that protect health.

It is not possible to detect specific allergies or sensitivities through any gut microbiome test.

But we can show associations between your baby’s gut microbiome and their symptoms of eczema or allergies. Or the potential risk of these conditions developing.

How do we do this?

We use something called biomarkers. Microbial biomarkers are bacteria associated with a higher or lower likelihood of developing a particular condition.

Our microbial biomarkers are developed from research.

The Tiny Health Bioinformatics Pipeline uses a custom built database of over 120K complete microbial genomes. We sift through the research surrounding the microbiome and use this information to develop a list of bacteria that we feel are important to track in early life.

Beyond the gut, there are a lot of other factors that can contribute to these conditions. Like genetics, lifestyle, and environmental exposures. If your child has eczema or food allergies, Tiny Health can show whether or not biomarkers for these conditions are present. And how to best support gut health.

Emerging microbiome research has shown the importance of gut health to our overall health. The science links 80% of our immune system to the gut. So, taking steps to improve gut health supports lifelong wellness.

There are many tools and strategies to help improve your gut health. These include eating the best foods and taking supplements for gut health, or working with a gut health coach. Yet there is no one-size-fits-all approach to gut health. For example, taking a probiotic for the gut may be beneficial for some individuals. In others, it could do more harm than good. Imagine there’s already high levels of a beneficial microbe in your gut. Taking a probiotic could boost those levels to a point where they are too high, resulting in low diversity in the gut microbiome.

Taking a gut microbiome test is the best way to determine if there are any imbalances in your gut that need course correction. Testing helps educate you on the best actions for your unique microbiome. And you can retest to track if dietary changes and gut health supplements or probiotics are having the intended effect.

With a database of over 130,000 genomes mapped out, we’re able to provide:

  • A comprehensive list of all bacteria fungi, parasites, viruses, and archaea found in your baby’s microbiome
  • Your baby’s Tiny Health Gut Type
  • Key Insights about your baby’s microbiome and what this means for their health
  • Condition Biomarkers, which may give you clues about what’s happening in your baby’s body and the risk for specific conditions
  • Associations between any symptoms your baby might have and their microbiome
