We are a registered charity supporting a vital project that is harnessing the emerging science of gut bug health to create a safe, personalised and proven therapy to reduce common, potentially avoidable, complications
and diseases for pregnant women and their babies. These include preeclampsia, diabetes, premature birth, asthma, eczma, autism and allergies. Professor Emad El-Omar and his team at the Microbiome Research Centre at St George Hospital, part of the UNSW clinical research campus, are developing this therapy. Studying and understanding how gut bug imbalances contribute to common diseases is a global scienti c phenomenon currently changing the face of modern medicine. This therapy holds the potential to change the future health of mothers, babies and children in Australia and will be at the forefront of preventative medicine worldwide. We owe it to humanity to support the development of this evidence-based therapy.
