Research output: Contribution to journalAbstract

Abstract

Planned caesarean section (CS) comprises over 10% of UK deliveries. By avoiding natural birth processes, CS may compromise natural immunity and hormone balance in children. Studies suggest that these children may be at increased risk of asthma, inflammatory
bowel disease and obesity. This study explored the relationship
between planned CS and offspring health problems.
