    I did not say all vaginal birthed babies are disgusting!! Maybe re read what I posted?
    My mum birthed my twin bro and I by vaginal birth and I would have had a total natural vaginal birth if possible.
    I didn't mean it to sound like I was attacking you sorry if thats the way you took it......

    Would everyone that had a c -sect allowed the docs to do a vaginal swab then run it in your bubs mouth????
    Or am I the only one who wouldn't want this?
    Everyone has their own opinion on things they would and wouldn't do with their child and should never be judged on it how boring would the world be if we all has the same views on everything!

    My dh has always thought dd's csection contributed to her chest problems as she get the push through the birth canal.
    My bestie who is a midwife said there is no proof of that.
    I think it's hereditary as we have asthma in the family

    Dd was exclusively breastfed and she was self weaned at 14 months. Milk arrived day 2 despite dd being in scn and I only fed 3 times before milk arrived and there was no attachment issues ....

    Babies do come out vaginas though, they drink amniotic fluid and ingest all sorts of stuff...

    I actually think that if an increased risk of serious chest infections or gastro could be so easily fixed as to just do a vag swab for bacteria to help colonise the gut - wow what an easy medical fix!

    I also wonder what the impact then is of ABs for strep b which are routinely given

    I could do a study on that vaginal delivery causes the plague and find evidence to support it! Crock of poo if you ask me! I am over this anti c section media. I will be delivering mine by csection, would rather the child get asthma or gastro than stuck and get cerebral palsy gd forbid!

    Winterbubs1012 (sorry I hope I got your username right) CTM has basically summed up what I would say here I just think disgusting is a little harsh I realize it may not be for everyone but it is a done practice and it does have benefits, each to their own of course, it was just a suggestion as I know it's not well known.

    Yes I understand that but I just don't see how a simple swab can replace all that? I thought all the good bacteria was released during labour?
    And bubs drink amniotic fluid while in the womb.
    You are right though it would be wonderful if it did work and maybe more studies should be done into it.

    Yes disgusting was a bit much, sorry
    Thanks for sharing it! I have never heard of it before and it was never suggested to me by my docs. Do you know if they have done studies into it to find out how much benefit it has?

    I don't think it has to be from labour - it's just that the baby ingests bacteria that is present in the birth canal during birth, which helps somehow to prompt the immune system.

    There's another theory as well, that some sort of huge overdrive immune thingo happens during labour and the baby gets this last chance huge shot of antibodies or something through the placenta *during* labour - so therefore just going into labour or being in labour can benefit the baby (which i guess is something that might be a consideration for ppl weighing up vbac).

    I think there's a lot we don't understand about the whole process.

    Well, I know there's a lot, nobody's given me a good explanation as to why I always have marathon labours at 2 weeks overdue either

    I also thought that babies will usually be exposed to bacteria from the anus being vaginally birthed, (good healthy gut flora), as that is the way they usually face coming out, something else which cesarean babies miss out on.
