In Labor and Birth Care

Two-Minute Medicine summarizes a study finding that administering antibiotics during labor alters bacterial colonization in the infant’s gut  compared with babies of mothers not receiving prophylactic antibiotics and that differences can persist for as long as 1 year. Babies who weren’t breastfed were more likely to have long-term differences, according to the study’s abstract. The effects of the differences are unknown.
