Pregnancy can be a daunting experience, particularly if it’s your first. Your body is changing, you are craving things you never even considered consuming and you’re starting to forget what your feet looked like.

Of course when you’re pregnant you want to focus on the good stuff – glowing skin, great hair and the excitement of what lies ahead. So keep those positive vibes rolling and read on to learn how probiotics can support your general health and wellbeing during pregnancy.

Life-Space is the probiotic specialist and it has a formula designed specifically for pregnancy and breastfeeding. As Australia’s number one pregnancy probiotic*, Life-Space Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Probiotic is formulated based on scientific evidence and contains 15 strains of premium quality live bacteria.

What do pregnancy probiotics do?

Probiotics help maintain the healthy bacteria that live inside the digestive tract and on the mucous membranes of the vaginal tract. The Life-Space Probiotic for Pregnancy & Breastfeeding helps support your immune system and may assist in maintaining healthy vaginal flora.

It also contains Lactobacillus fermentum CECT 5716, which may help to relieve or reduce breast pain and discomfort associated with mastitis.

You can find out more about Life-Space probiotics and order them on their website.
