    Nevertheless, definitely something for people to keep in mind if they arent sure which way to go.
    Unfortunately some women don't have a choice and need to have a c section for the safety of mother and baby. I have had a few c sections in the past and had no problem breastfeeding at all.

    Much more common with prems, but I know a couple of people who have developed CP from birth trauma at full term.

    CONCLUSIONS: Cesarean delivery can reduce the risk of adverse childhood neurologic outcome for those born with myelomeningocele, and may reduce the rate of brachial plexus palsies and neonatal herpes and HIV infections. However, children born by cesarean have no documented reduced risk of other childhood neurologic problems or cerebral palsy.

    and the odds of baby getting an infection are lower...

    CP must be more common than I have realized. 5/10 of the people I know with it was caused by birth.

    I hope I've made it clear that there are many reasons for planned c-sections?

    However, if someone is not sure which way to go, (as opposed to having a clear medical indication for c-sec), then this info should be helpful or at least something to consider.

    I myself have had a c-section (emergency)

    Just thought I should point out that you've seriously misunderstood the statistic.

    The statistic is not that 1% of babies born naturally get CP, the statistic is that events during a natural birth account for the causes of the less than 1% of all cerebal palsy. Do you see the difference?

    Of the babies born that have CP, birth is the cause of less than 1%

    The increased incidence of infection after c-sec is much higher
