microbiome rebirth incubator

The Microbiome Rebirth Incubator is an art installation that addresses the problem of seeding the vaginal microbiome to children born by emergency Cesarean section. Vaginal bacteria and a sample of breast milk essential for infant growth are grown in a glass incubator. This probiotic cocktail can be used to seed children born by C-section, either by immersing the newborn in it, or by soaking a sterile compress, which is then used to wash the newborn.
