A study conducted in South Australia claims an emergency C-section can lead to more inflammation in the placenta than natural birth.
An emergency C-section is performed when the baby is needed to be delivered quickly to prevent harm to the mother or baby.
The research suggests that labor is an inflammatory process, and emergency C-sections can cause more inflammation than planned or pre-labour Caesarean delivery.
The scientists found that inflammation was more common in the placentas of baby girls born through emergency C-sections, which could affect their long-term health. However, more research is needed to verify these findings.
The study highlights the need to monitor the health of babies exposed to higher-than-normal inflammation levels during birth.
