Another myth about cesareans debunked
When it comes to discussions around how we give birth, women who have cesareans are not often included in the conversation. There remains an amount of judgment around the way we give birth. Some of those judgments come from an understanding of what is best for the baby. Now research from the Murdoch Children's Research Institute has found that one theory - that an increase in childhood allergy was linked to an increase in the rate of cesareans- has been disproved. Associate Professor Rachel Peters was the lead researcher on the project. She explains what they found and why this particular theory about cesareans has been proved wrong.
