QiaraTV News – C-section possible links to breastfeeding problems and infant health

This episode of Qiara TV news discusses research findings relating to caesarian section births and the incidence of subsequent infant hospitalisations and breastfeeding problems following C-section. The study analysed data from 626,700 births in NSW between 2001 and 2008. It found that women who gave birth by caesarean were 70 percent more likely to be diagnosed with a complication affecting breastfeeding.

Babies of the women with breastfeeding problems were then 30 percent more likely to be hospitalised with gastrointestinal problems. Website: https://www.qiara.com.au
