Cover Story (view full-size image): Pregnancy ongoing and the labor setting are related by physiological changes of the mother and the placenta microbiota through different mechanisms. Even, the classical belief of the sterile fetus is under discussion. In addition, the newborn progress and child development are also influenced by their microbiota. New molecular methods complemented with metabolomics and proteomic analysis will complete the whole metabolic picture of the microbiota and its influence in the perinatal period, taking into account different factors such as the diet, ethnicity and geographic location of the mothers. This knowledge may help predict possible complications that could occur during pregnancy, childbirth and subsequent child growth, that might be prevented. View this paper
