It is becoming more and more common to choose the date of birth based on convenience considerations, but this has many drawbacks.A study examining the risks of first-born babies revealed that first-born babies have a higher probability of conceiving and have a higher average loss of time.
"If an intervention is done, it must be more rewarding than risk," the author of the article explains, Dr. Christopher Glantz, professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Rochester, conducting the examination. "If parenting has no medical benefit, it is difficult to justify why we are expecting a higher maternal and fetal risk."
Birth control is increasingly considered a routine part of the birth process. The decision is not without consequences, because the induced births take place in a different way, all naturally started spontaneously. The analysis of the birth of 485 first-time mothers was conducted in 2007 by the University of Rochester's Center for Health. It turned out that one-third of the births were completed with cesarean section, as opposed to 20% with natural births.
Cesarean section is considered to be a large-scale infection, and more frequent infections and recurrent operations may be warranted. In the case of births, the hospital stay was extended by 88 days for all my babies. Newborns born from such births were more likely to need oxygen after birth or to be placed in a neonatal intensive care center. Similarly, negative effects were not detectable in multiple birth mothers.
"Once a mom is born, your organization learns the process and can repeat it," says the professor. Glantz and colleagues reported their results in the February issue of the Journal of Reproductive Medicine.
