Risk for Mortality and Mental Retardation w/ Maternal UTI
I must admit that this is new info to me, but if this does hold out to be true I do have a strong recommendation for any women prone to urinary tract infections. Probiotic use in distilled water douches is just short of a miracle cure for many women with current or recurring UTIs or yeast infections. As an added benefit, an infant’s first exposure to lactobacillus is typically while traveling down the birth canal and this would ensure that exposure. It might be a good idea as a preventative measure to perform this douching periodically during pregnancy.
