    Default Article about C-section..

    http://au.lifestyle.yahoo.com/practi...od-study-says/

    My obstetrician also said this when I had to be induced at 36 weeks as DD was loosing weight and growth restricted. She wanted to attempt vaginal as it would help size bubs lungs and so help stimulate breathing and keep C section as a last resort.

    I've had 3 c/s's so far (no labour), out of the 3 only DS2 has had breathing problems within the first year. None of them have had any other issues. I firmly believe that DS2's problems were due to being roomed with a lady who was a very heavy smoker who's bed we had to pass to go to the bathroom or leave the room, not from the C/s. My family and all those that surround us are non-smokers.

    I can understand the babies born at 34 weeks would have problems due to immature lungs, but to throw full term babies in there, is a bit of a stretch. IMO. There are to many variables

    All of my children were born between 38-41 weeks and all got top/perfect APGAR results

    My DS was admitted to NICU after an emergency c section at 40+6 due to breathing difficulty he required CPAP for two days. Ob and pead both said it was due to c section

    I've been reading a lot of research papers about twin births lately- and many of them have been about the c/s vs vb debate, generally the only difference in outcomes is that twins born by c/s have a significantly higher rates of respiratory issues after birth.
