Question: Is there a difference between children who come into the world through Caesarean section and children who are born through natural childbirth?
Answer: A Caesarean section is very damaging; it is desirable to use it as little as possible and only when necessary. Birth is a serious process that a newborn goes through, a dangerous process that is accompanied by much stress, which is very necessary. In natural birth the newborn receives a kind of special immunization which he is deprived if a Caesarean section is done.
There are situations in which it is necessary to perform a Caesarean section, but in general it is certainly desirable to have a regular birth.
Comment: But now many women have Caesarean sections.
Answer: I would not recommend this. For the sake of the child it is necessary to give birth naturally, to go through the preliminary preparation, light exercise, etc. It is too bad we don’t have midwives as we once did.
It is possible to facilitate birth through massage of the birth canal, and then women would give birth without problems. In our day we rely more on drugs so this is impossible.
