A new study published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences finds that babies born via cesarean section (C-section) have different bacteria on their skin, noses and mouths than those born vaginally which may have an effect on the development of immune-related troubles later in life.

There seem to be a lot of benefits of natural birth, I honestly wouldn't be surprised. However the numbers of babies in this study are far too few for any sort of conclusion in my opinion.

^ I agree. For most women and babies a natural birth is best. But some will require a c-section, medication, or other interventions.
