Frequently Asked Questions

General Information

What is MaMome?

MaMome is an innovative, non-invasive, at-home test designed to assess the risk of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) based on the analysis of the microbiome. The test is specifically designed for pregnant women and aims to provide early detection and personalized recommendations.

Why does screening for GDM matter?

Early detection of GDM is crucial as it allows for timely intervention, which can significantly improve health outcomes for both the mother and the baby. GDM, if left unmanaged, can lead to complications such as high birth weight, preterm birth, and increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life.

What does MaMome screen for?

MaMome analyzes the composition of the microbiome to identify biomarkers associated with an increased risk of developing GDM. It provides insights into the microbial environment of the gut, oral, and vaginal areas, which are linked to metabolic health during pregnancy.
