Results you can actually trust

Most gut microbiome tests, even those prescribed by doctors, only detect a limited set of microbes. Others rely on lower quality screening technologies, like 16S. Tiny Health uses metagenomic sequencing, the gold standard in microbiome research.

Start making precise, data-driven decisions for your child’s health today.

“When you get health information, people tell you to check with your provider. But often times the providers don’t have the type of knowledge about the early life gut microbiome that Tiny Health does.”
Lauren B.
”After so many formula changes, we weren’t sure how to interpret the results. The Tiny Health Team did a real time review of the formulas we’ve used and how they could influence our baby's microbiome.”
Lillian H.
“My baby has a lot of symptoms and her gut had many items that needed support, so I wasn’t sure what I should prioritize. I was really grateful to speak to a qualified pediatrician who studied microbiology at Tiny Health, and that really clarified the approach and protocols that I would take to start improving my baby’s gut health. I will definitely resample after each step, so that I know what’s working and what’s not.”
Natasha L.
“It was so reassuring to learn that the actions I’ve been taking are helping my children have good gut health. Encourages me to keep them up.”
Paige G.
“My husband and I did the test together (I’m currently pregnant) and I really loved that Tiny Health’s membership came with special discounts to supplements. We received really tailored advice based on our lifestyle and were blown away by how much time the team took to research whether our current supplements were good for us. We’re excited to test frequently with our baby.”
Abby B. 
“Talking with the Tiny Health Team we were able to get specific recommendations about options for probiotic brands and dietary change and guidance on how long we should try them before re-sampling.”
Mallory J.
“The super detailed report analysis went through all my baby’s symptoms, made connections to his gut results and also analyzed all the probiotics he’s been taking to give me clues on what may have worked or not worked. It made me feel 100% heard. Just getting this level of reporting itself is worth the membership price alone.”
Elizabeth Y.
“Speaking with the experts at Tiny Health helped me to prioritize the actions I could take to improve gut health and to make decisions around re-testing based on the actions I was planning to take.”
Brittany O.
“The biggest takeaway from my consultation call was to focus on strategies to increase beneficial bacteria rather than get rid of unfriendly bacteria. We’re often so focused on getting rid of bad stuff, that the opposite might work better! I don’t think I would’ve come away with that on my own.”
Alyssa F.
“Wonderful service - I had such an informative conversation and guidance from Cheryl and Kim. I've ordered all the recommended supplements and will be working with my naturopathic doctor to follow up with some issues we identified. I love that I’m learning about upcoming pregnancy tests and can already start taking action to improve my health rather than to wait for a negative test to show up later. Thanks for providing this essential knowledge to help moms and families navigate gut health!”
Mary B.
“I have found that it is very rare for a pediatrician or even functional medicine practitioner to be on top of the details of specific bacteria within the gut. My doctors do not have such information. While the written report had lots of information and some suggestions, the reasoning and tradeoffs behind the recommendations came alive by talking to you about it.”
