HMF Maternity Probiotics, 30 Capsules by Genestra Brands
Probiotics for Mom
Probiotics are beneficial forms of bacteria that can assist your body in preventing and treating many types of illness and disease. We have these beneficial bacteria in our body naturally, but supplementation can greatly support the body. While nearly everyone can benefit from consuming probiotics, using probiotics is especially important and advantageous during pregnancy and once the baby is born.

During pregnancy regular use of probiotics can help lower risk of:
❤Illness (colds and flu)
❤Urinary tract infections
Probiotics are found lining the mucous membranes of your digestive, urinary, and vaginal tracts. The latter is particularly important in pregnancy, because healthy vaginal flora is crucial to baby’s health. Babies are born with a sterile gastrointestinal system. Exposure to mom’s vaginal flora is their first exposure to the bacteria that will colonize their systems. Fostering healthy vaginal flora helps give the baby’s immune system a good start.
HMF Maternity Probiotics by Genestra provides 10 billion CFU of probiotics specifically designed for pregnant women to support a healthy pregnancy.
Healthy intestinal bacteria are just as important to infants as to adults. Modern living may inhibit gut flora balance post birth. Therefore, the acquisition of a beneficial flora (good bacteria) potential in the newborn can be significantly enhanced if the mother also takes a probiotic during pregnancy. Additionally, probiotics will help support the intestinal function of the mother during the pregnancy period.
❤All HMF probiotic strains are research-driven and clinically proven. They are all made from non-pathogenic human-sourced microflora bacterial strains rather than animal or dairy strains. Human strains work faster, adhere better to the gastrointestinal tract and have a naturally high tolerance to stomach acid.
❤HMF probiotics are made in the UK and are the only product line of their kind in North America.
❤The capsules are 100% pure vegetable-sourced. Product ideal for vegetarians.
Women: Take one capsule daily with a meal, at least two to three hours before or after taking antibiotics, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. The antibiotics you are given during surgery can wipe out the healthy bacteria in your gut. Talk to your provider about taking a probiotic supplement which can help restore healthy gut flora that can prevent diarrhea and improve immunity and overall health.
TIP: Start taking the probiotics right away, if you are able to. Depending if you feel nauseated or not, it may be difficult to swallow pills in the first 24-48 hours; but if you are able to then start taking it. If you are unsure or have concerns, please consult your qualified healthcare professional first. Follow dosage instructions on the bottle.
Risk Info: If you have an immune-compromised condition, do not use. If you are experiencing nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea or severe abdominal pain, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. If symptoms of digestive upset occur, worsen, or persist beyond three days, discontinue use and consult your healthcare practitioner.
