The paper reviews literature devoted to dysbacteriosis likely to occur as a result of moth‑er’s antibiotic treatment and its effects on foetus. First a newborn comes in contact with ambient mi‑crobial flora intranatally, when the foetus passes through the maternal passages. The quantitative and qualitative features of the genital microbiocenosis in a woman in labour are considered to be ones of the crucial factors known to have effects on the formation of baby’s microecological health. The in‑nate dysbiosis is not easy to deal with, and results in an increase of children, and then adults, who suf‑fer from chronic infectious inflammatory diseases. Therefore, it is of high importance to perinatally prevent newborn children’s dysbiosis using new symbiotic drugs that prove to efficiently restore mother’s microbiocenosis.
