Many parents think that ᴄᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ delivery does not have to go through the door, choosing a beautiful date and time, the baby will be smarter. But in fact, there is no scientific study to prove that babies born by ᴄᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ are smarter than babies born vaginally. Because the ʙʀᴀɪɴ development of children depends on genes, nutrition, educational process, not the method of childbirth.
In addition, babies born by ᴄᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ are more likely to have problems with the ɪᴍᴍᴜɴᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ, ᴅɪɢᴇsᴛɪᴠᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ, ᴀɴᴅ ʀᴇsᴘɪʀᴀᴛᴏʀʏ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ than babies born naturally. Because when giving birth through the vagina, the ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ mother’s ʙᴏᴅʏ will secrete some very good fluids for the baby’s ɪᴍᴍᴜɴᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ.
Therefore, unless the mother belongs to the cases indicated for cᴄᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ such as: ɴᴀʀʀᴏᴡ ᴘᴇʟᴠɪs, ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ ᴄᴏᴍᴘʟɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴs (ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇɴᴛᴀ ᴘʀᴇᴠɪᴀ, ᴘʀᴇᴇᴄʟᴀᴍᴘsɪᴀ, ᴜᴛᴇʀɪɴᴇ ꜰɪʙʀᴏɪᴅs, ᴘʟᴀᴄᴇɴᴛᴀʟ ᴀʙʀᴜᴘᴛɪᴏɴ, …) If the mother’s health is stable, the pelvis is normal, and the ꜰᴇᴛᴜs develops healthy, the mother should choose the normal delivery method.
2. Differences in the ɪᴍᴍᴜɴᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ
For babies born naturally
For women who give birth naturally, during ʟᴀʙᴏʀ, many hormones will be produced to help the baby resist better. Moreover, natural birth will give the baby’s ɪᴍᴍᴜɴᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ the opportunity to come into contact with the natural flora through the vagina and it only takes about 10 days for the ɪᴍᴍᴜɴᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ to function properly.
For babies born by ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ
For ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ women who give birth by ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ and are born in a sterile environment, when they are born exposed to ʙᴀᴄᴛᴇʀɪᴀ and ᴘᴀᴛʜᴏɢᴇɴs (hospital environment), the ɪᴍᴍᴜɴᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ can be perfected for up to 6 months, and affect the health of children.
In addition, not passing through the mother’s natural birth ᴄᴀɴᴀʟ, causing the baby’s ʟᴜɴɢs to not be pressed tightly by the strong contractions of the cervix to squeeze out the ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ ꜰʟᴜɪᴅ in the ʟᴜɴɢs, leading to ᴘᴜʟᴍᴏɴᴀʀʏ ꜰʟᴜɪᴅ ʀᴇᴛᴇɴᴛɪᴏɴ, ᴘʀᴏɴᴇ ᴛᴏ ᴡʜᴇᴇᴢɪɴɢ , which can cause respiratory failure or later ʀᴇsᴘɪʀᴀᴛᴏʀʏ ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇs.
3. Digestive system differences
Babies born naturally absorb beneficial ʙᴀᴄᴛᴇʀɪᴀ in the gut
Infants born normally inherit from their mothers beneficial ʙᴀᴄᴛᴇʀɪᴀ, which should help children reduce ᴀʟʟᴇʀɢɪᴄ ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇs such as ᴇᴄᴢᴇᴍᴀ, ᴀsᴛʜᴍᴀ, ꜰᴏᴏᴅ ᴀʟʟᴇʀɢɪᴇs, and reduce the ɪɴᴄɪᴅᴇɴᴄᴇ of ɪɴᴛᴇsᴛɪɴᴀʟ infections by creating a physiological environment ᴀɢᴀɪɴsᴛ ᴘᴀᴛʜᴏɢᴇɴɪᴄ ʙᴀᴄᴛᴇʀɪᴀ. On the other hand, ɪɴᴛᴇsᴛɪɴᴀʟ ʙᴀᴄᴛᴇʀɪᴀ are also involved in the synthesis of vitamins K and B, which are very good for the health of children.
Babies born by ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ are prone to ᴠᴏᴍɪᴛɪɴɢ, ᴄᴏɴsᴛɪᴘᴀᴛɪᴏɴ, ᴀɴᴅ ᴅɪᴀʀʀʜᴇᴀ
C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ babies not only affect the ɪᴍᴍᴜɴᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ but also affect the ᴅɪɢᴇsᴛɪᴠᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ, leading to common symptoms such as ᴠᴏᴍɪᴛɪɴɢ, ᴄᴏɴsᴛɪᴘᴀᴛɪᴏɴ, ᴘᴏᴏʀ ɢʀᴏᴡᴛʜ, ᴅɪᴀʀʀʜᴇᴀ… sʟᴏᴡ ɪɴᴛᴇsᴛɪɴᴀʟ ᴛʀᴀᴄᴛ.
C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, the baby will be different in the ʀᴇsᴘɪʀᴀᴛᴏʀʏ system
During a normal birth, the baby will learn how to adjust his body to get through the mother’s pelvis by stacking his bones. In addition, the baby must also press the chest to come out easily, which will cause the ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ ꜰʟᴜɪᴅ ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ ʟᴜɴɢs to drain out. When the baby cries, the ʟᴜɴɢs expand and the ʀᴇsᴘɪʀᴀᴛᴏʀʏ system begins to function normally.
But for babies born by ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, because they do not pass through the mother’s door, many babies still have ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ ꜰʟᴜɪᴅ in their ʟᴜɴɢs, causing them to wheeze or have a higher ʀɪsᴋ ᴏꜰ ʀᴇsᴘɪʀᴀᴛᴏʀʏ ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇs than babies born vaginally.
