C-section births are hard for your baby's gut

It means your baby missed the very crucial "seeding moment" that happens during vaginal birth, where mom transfers the beneficial microbes that jumpstart the baby's microbiome.

Their immune system may need a little help

Fussiness, sleep issues, reflux, eczema, food allergies, and even some long-term conditions like asthma, and type 1 diabetes link back to this early moment on their microbiome journey.

Fortunately, the right interventions during their first 1,000 days can help your baby to course correct.

Starting at 1 mo, my baby had several GI issues and we couldn’t pinpoint the cause. Tiny Health gave me a real look at what was going on and provided targeted advice. She is a whole new baby who is thriving and happy!
My 1+ month son had bad colic and gas. Colic drops didn’t work. Through Tiny Health’s tests, we got to the root of his fussiness - his gut health wasn’t great. After following some recommendations, his sleep and fussiness went away

The first gut test designed for babies

Tiny Health was founded by a mom who wanted to test her baby’s gut trajectory after her C-section and couldn’t find a straight answer in the market. Our test is the first to measure what matters most to babies. Other gut tests use “adult reference ranges,” which are entirely different from babies' ranges and lead to incorrect conclusions.

How do we look at the microbiome?

Highest resolution analysis

We use deep-shotgun metagenomics sequencing, the gold standard to get a comprehensive analysis you can rely on to make informed decisions

Breakthrough insights

We use functional profiling to check what microbes are present, how much of them are there, and what they’re actually doing

Targeted suggestions

We use species-level identification and precision science to detect and confirm microbes' transference, probiotics impact, and more

The Tiny Health team has 7 PhDs, 106 scientific publications, 5,875 citations and 5 provisional patents

Frequently Asked Questions

If a baby has high levels of unfriendly bacteria in their gut microbiome for prolonged periods of time, especially in the first 1,000 days, it can elevate their risk for developing eczema, food allergies, asthma, and a host of other chronic conditions later in life like metabolic and autoimmune conditions. While only one piece of the puzzle, the microbiome plays an important role in the developing immune system and immunological conditions.

Thankfully, studies have shown there is a window of opportunity for intervention, and by acting early to restore your baby’s gut microbiome can reduce their microbiome risk for developing these conditions.

Tiny Health’s Root Cause Assessment and Baby Gut C-Section Recovery program, are designed to support you with your baby’s gut microbiome needs. Our baby gut test will be able to detect any microbiome imbalances that need to be addressed.

You will receive a personalized Action Plan and help from our microbiome coaches so that you can act quickly to course correct your baby’s gut before inflammation sets in.

Yes! By restoring your baby’s gut microbiome and reducing their “C-Section Signature” by the age of one, can help you reduce their microbiome risk for developing these conditions.

For example, this is an expert from one of our White Papers regarding C-Sections and asthma.

“Studies have shown that C-section-delivered infants are at more than double the risk of developing asthma later in life[30]. However, the risk of asthma can be mitigated after a C-section birth if the baby’s microbiome restores to a “healthy range” by 1 year of age [1]. Children who retain a C-section gut microbial signature at 1 year old have a 3 times increased risk of developing asthma by age 6, while C-section babies without the microbiome signature have the same risk as vaginal born babies.

This suggests that appropriate maturation of the gut microbiome mitigates the risk of asthma linked to C-section birth and provides a window of opportunity for intervention.”

Tiny Health’s Root Cause Assessment will provide you with a comprehensive report that flags any imbalances or dysbiosis in your baby’s gut, and a personalized action plan including dietary, lifestyle and supplement recommendations. You will also receive one coaching session to review your baby’s report and feel confident in the steps you should take to optimize your baby’s gut health.

A Root Cause Assessment includes:

  • One gut microbiome test
  • An in-depth microbiome report and personalized Action Plan
  • One coaching session with a microbiome expert

The Baby Gut C-Section Recovery Program, includes everything from the Root Cause Assessment, plus 4 coaching sessions with a dedicated microbiome specialist and a second gut test to track your baby’s progress. The program will allow you to take the guesswork out of whether or not your baby’s gut has been fully restored. Throughout the program, your microbiome coach will help you update your Action Plan. The second gut microbiome test will determine if the actions you’ve taken have corrected your baby’s gut imbalances, or if additional action is required.  

Baby Gut C-Section Recovery Program includes:

  • Two gut microbiome test (C-section)
  • In-depth microbiome reports and personalized Action Plans for each test
  • Four coaching sessions with a microbiome specialist
  • Unlimited text and messaging support
  • A gut microbiome course (via e-mail)

If you join the program you are committing to a 6-month subscription. While you may cancel and stop your coaching sessions, you will be charged an early cancellation fee for the remaining balance of the program. If you are unsure about committing to a 6-month program, we recommend starting with the Root Cause Assessment (C-Section) to determine if your baby’s gut requires extended support and testing. If so, you can then opt into the Baby Gut C-Section Recovery program for additional support.

Tiny Health’s Root Cause Assessment and Baby Gut C-Section Recovery Program are great tools to use in conjunction with your provider’s services. There is no one-size fits all approach to gut health. Tiny Health’s services will be able to give your provider a clear view of what is happening in your baby’s gut so that a personalized plan of care that addresses your baby’s specific needs can be implemented. We also offer guidance to your practitioners at no additional cost, to help them best understand your results and utilize them in your care plan.
