How To Give Your Body’s Friendly Bacteria A Boost

There are so many wonderful things about being pregnant!

Feeling that little life growing within you, your maternal instincts to protect your little one making your heart burst with love.

But your heart isn’t the only part of your body which pregnancy impacts upon – and let’s face it, pregnancy can really take its toll on some parts more than others!
We all know the obvious changes, from your growing bump to bigger boobs, but for many women, their digestive system can be affected more than they may have thought.

With the pressure from your growing uterus, your digestive system can get really squashed in there!

With constipation, gas, bloating and diarrhoea common for most women at some point throughout pregnancy, it’s no surprise to learn that the balance between your body's ‘Friendly’ and ‘Unfavourable’ bacteria can fall out of sync, leading to a whole host of other conditions.


To help rebalance your delicate digestive system, you could try a supplement to replenish some of that “friendly” bacteria.

Loved by Irish families for 20 years, Udo’s Choice® Super 8 Microbiotic is a blend of eight specific strains of “friendly” bacteria.

Each daily capsule contains an amazing 42 billion “friendly” bacteria.

It’s particularly helpful for any mom who is recovering from a Caesarean Section, who may be feeling run down while recovering from major surgery. Antibiotics and painkillers are all perfect for helping you recover – but can be harsh on your already delicate digestive system. Choosing a top quality good bacteria may help you avoid a common problem while on antibiotics – thrush!

What about your babies digestive system?

“Friendly” bacteria can also really help give your new baby’s digestive system the start it needs to begin taking all the goodness from your milk. Suitable from birth to five years, Udo’s Choice® Infant’s Blend Microbiotic helps support a healthy tummy from day one.

Practice shows that B. infantis was found in approximately 60% of full-term new-borns that were born vaginally but only 9% of babies born by caesarean section. Babies pick up these friendly bacteria from their mothers during their passage through a clean and healthy birth canal.

Udo’s Choice® Infant’s Blend Microbiotic contains six specially chosen strains of ‘good’ bacteria, including bifidobacterium infantis, the most important microorganism in the large intestine of babies and toddlers.


These strains are present at a volume that is both very safe and highly beneficial for their tiny, brand new digestive systems. It is an easy to use, tasteless powder formula that can be added to breastmilk.

With Udo’s Choice® Infant’s Blend Microbiotic you know you are giving your little one a great helping hand, something all moms know is so important for a happy healthy baby!

Here's to happy tummy’s for all!
