Spotlight on: ACOG Committee Opinion on Vaginal Seeding @acognews

According to ACOG, vaginal seeding refers to the practice of inoculating a cotton gauze or a cotton swab with vaginal fluids to transfer the vaginal flora to the mouth, nose, or skin of a newborn infant. The intended purpose of vaginal seeding is to transfer maternal vaginal bacteria to the newborn.

I try realllllly hard to look for guidance from people and organizations that know more than I do 😃  As a healthcare professional, I always try to defer to what our professional organizations say when I consider whether I’ll verbally support a practice.

Here is ACOG’s committee opinion regarding vaginal seeding.
