    In one of the articles I read it suggested that autistic babies may not trigger the body to go into labour (in some cases). So autistic babies could mean an induction, not the other way around.

    Either way I think the stats weren't very convincing.

    Default Link between Autism and Induction of Labour

    I was just discussing this study with my mum because my older brother has Aspergers Syndrome. She said that he was due on Nov 25 but she was eventually induced on Feb 3rd!! (Thats not a typo - he was two months overdue! This was back in 1972) But that induction was by ARM. She said she had to be induced with me too and that was with oxytocin (i dont have any ASD).

    Still, its a very interesting study...

    My son was an emergency c section after going into labour naturally . He has autism .

    My daughter was a scheduled c section , at this point I * think * she is developing typically but I'm not 100% sure yet .

    Oh wow! 2 months!!!!! Gosh, my boy was 4.554 I'd hate to think how big he would be 2 months over due.

    I agree, it is very interesting. The more studies the better, IMO.

    I can't answer the poll properly - I was induced, 3 times, but it never lead to labour.

    DD has *something* going on which makes her different, but it could just be that she's quirky. As far as we know, she's not got autism... and if she does have it, she's very high functioning.

    I think that's very interesting. I read that once too.

    I was induced with both boys due to their size and because of having to travel such a long way to birth at the private hospital we chose. I had a long labour with ds and had the works but with ds2 my waters were broken straight away so I didn't have the gel nor the syntocin as labour progressed very quick.

    I just believe Autism plays more of a genetic part.

    Talk about scare mongering. Way to go to make mums even more fearful about child birth and heaven forbid an induction.

    I was induced with DS1 and he is "quirky" but very bright and has lots of friends etc.

    I wasn't induced with DS2 and he is the one with Autism.

    I guess this is just another thing to could one day be added to the massive list that is "environmental triggers" - which lets face it, could include just about anything.

    There is a higher risk of Autism where the dad is older, just so many variables.

    Well that certainly fits with both my Aspie DD and my Aspie older brother. Very interesting...

    Scare mongering?!?! Researchers do these studies to find answers, not to "scare mums" !!
