The Swansea 'Safety in Newborns' Study

Dietary Supplementation with Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria is Well Tolerated and Not Associated with Adverse Events During Late Pregnancy and Early Infancy

(Allen at al. 2010)

The probiotic formula that is used in GENESTRA BRANDS HMF Baby B and HMF Baby F was found to be safe for use by pregnant mothers at 36+ weeks of gestation and in infants aged 0-6 months. Probiotic supplementation did not impact adverse event incidence, number of visits to the doctor, or mothers’ assessment of infant health. Based on these findings, the authors concluded that usage of the probiotic formula was safe during pregnancy and infancy.

  • No increase in adverse event incidence in pregnant mothers
  • No increase in adverse event incidence in infants
