Moms-to-be may want to consider having a natural child birth whenever possible.
That's because a new study shows babies born by c-section may be at higher risk for developing childhood obesity.
Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital believe it boils down to the bacteria in a newborn's stomach.
They say there's a difference between that bacteria in babies born by C-Section, compared to natural birth.
However scientists say they must do more studies to confirm these findings.

    I had my 3 children naturally. No shots or anything and that last one like to have done me in, 10lbs he was. It hurts soooo bad. But they are alright. That is the main thing, is that your child didn't sustain any injury and you didn't involuntary let them be exposed to any harmful drugs.Why would you do everything right during your pregnancy then get shot up full of pain killers that may harm your child when you are fixing to give birth ? The child is worth every ounce of suffering. Mine are, they are my sunshine.
