Strategies for a “gentle cesarean birth” (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.
