  1. I figure there might be something to the obesity/c-section connection if only because there are links to other things like ability to handle stress and the amount of stress the mom was in while the baby was in utero…you know, hormones are crazy things.

    • I like the proposed mechanism of gut flora, too. I’ve seen a few studies where they test the surface bacteria of the baby after either vaginal or caesarean and there is a consistent, measurable difference. With as much influence as we’re learning that gut health has on overall health, it definitely seems viable.
