First performed by German gynecologist Ferdinand Adolf Kehrer in the early 1880s, a Caesarean section procedure is a surgical operation made when circumstances require an urgent delivery of the baby, via an incision made in the front wall of a woman’s abdomen. Nowadays, almost one in three children is delivered by C-section in the United States. According to a new study, C-section babies could face a higher risk of obesity, than those born by normal vaginal delivery. Learn more about the cesarean delivery and its impact on children’s health in this book.
