Q.

ADD

I want to know, is there a differeance between a baby born naturally and a Baby born via C section. Do you think that the over flow of Adrennalin flowing through a babies body during birth when not used because its born via C section causes an increased chance of haveing add or adhd?

Dear Chase,

There was a belief hat the exposure to the anaesthetic during a cesarean could be linked to learning difficulties. This has since been disproven. Regarding your query on the affects of the adrenalin, I cannot confirm or deny as I am not a medical doctor; however, I have not to date heard of any supporting research on the matter.

Kind regards,
Delia
