The substances in the gut seem to be a big deal. I read that formula fed babies have a high chance of getting child hood cancer because how formula changes the gut. I wish I could remember the article name. Things like this raise eyebrows and makes you wonder about certain things.

I feel like my experience was stolen from me....like I am missing out on something huge that all women were designed to do. I hate how people are just like well be glad the baby is healthy!! I am glad my baby is healthy...but I am mourning for the loss of our birth experience...that is important...our feelings about our birth are incredibly important

2 emergency sections.
2 autistic free babes.




I agree with a previous poster.... everything is linked to autism or cancer.

Great, but the article was not implying if you have a c-section your child is going to have autism. All they said was that they found the same bacteria in the guts of children born via c-section as in children with autism.



You all need to... I don't know... not be so... defensive.



Or read more carefully...

It's really, really difficult not to get defensive when someone is implying that something a mother did or didn't do, through no fault of her own, caused or could potentially cause her babies to be sick. Especially when there is already SO much judgement towards women when it comes to how they birth their babies, etc. I really get that your intentions are totally pure and you're really, genuinely just interested in the science, but being on the other side of it sucks.



And at the same time, a lot of people don't want to put a lot of weight behind a theory that hasn't been studied extensively and really doesn't seem super organized, yet. *shrugs*



If I jumped at YOU, that wasn't my intention at all. Jerk reaction, and I apologize.

I mean I know articles like this werent meant to make women who needed c sections or who physically were unable to BF feel bad. I didnt take it that way...this is info that mothers who are electively choosing ought to read.

How was what I said in any way defensive? Maybe you should try NOT to assume what I am doing with my post and worry about yourself?

In OP's defense, she was kinda sand-blasted by a lot of defensive people. Myself included. And I think she was just frustrated. :oops:

I guess. But I honestly wasn't being defensive at all. I was merely saying that I have had both my pregnancies end in emergency c sections and both my children are OK.



And I do believe that Dr.'s are so desperate for answers they try to link the smallest similarities they may or may not equal a possible cause.



That is my view on it, not my defensive stance.

I just felt like all you were focusing on was "well, I had two c-sections and my babies are autism free!" and that that somehow debunked the entire article or something. :?



And if you weren't coming off as defense previously, you certainly are now. -_-
