Did you know?
One of the benefits of natural birth is that the bacteria transferred from you to Your Child when the little one exits through the vagina help to develop their immune system. With a stronger immune system comes lower risks of infections and fewer allergies later in life. Since the effects can only be observed when looking at a large population of babies, it does not mean that if you choose to do a cesarean, Your Child has a weaker immune system. The little one is just statistically a tiny bit better with a natural delivery. On top of increasing, on average, the strength of Your Child’s immune system, natural birth usually means a faster recovery for the mom.
