Strategies for a “gentle cesarean birth” (video)

allergy babies & postpartum video

A lot of research has been done over the last few years exploring the relationship between cesarean sections and the development of illness later in life.  It turns out that c-sections, while they are sometimes critical, do seem to put a child at an increased risk for certain illnesses like diabetes type 1, asthma, allergy, celiac disease, ADHD, and autism.  A “gentle cesarean” is a new term being given to a cesarean section that is more supportive of health.

In this video I share with you 3 gentle cesarean birth strategies that can lower those increased risks, and also what to do if your child is older.

 

Here is the link to the review study I mention in the video so you can take a look at some of this research.

 

How about you?  Did you have a c-section?  Did you try vaginal swabbing?  Are you planning one?  Tell us your story in our Raising Resilience Community.
