"We were surprised when we observed the association between fewer Bacteroides and a high-fat maternal diet during pregnancy," said senior study author Dr. Kjersti Aagaard.
She is an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. While the findings do not establish cause-and-effect, more study is needed to show whether changes in women's diets have immediate and longer-term benefit for their babies, Aagaard added in a college news release. "Diet is very amenable to change, and women are highly motivated to make healthy changes during pregnancy," she said.

Kjersti Aagaard, associate professor at the Baylor College of Medicine, is the first researcher to identify a community of bacteria in the placenta. "Unlike what we previously thought, the placenta isn't sterile and seems to have a greater impact on the child's microbiome than the way they are born," explains Aagaard. We previously believed that babies began to acquire their microbiota from their mother at birth, but Aagaard has shown that the mother's diet during pregnancy can change the child's microbiome and propensity to anxiety.
