Moms of kids on the Autism spectrum, I have a random question.

I saw this article and am wondering if any of this makes sense to you. Did you have a traumatic birth or csection? Or any trauma while pregnant?

This is just an informal poll just for my own curiosity. This is in no way meant to offend anyone.

  • I had a C-Section, and I'm the mom of a kid on the autism spectrum. I find the article interesting. In my case, I had the C-Section because my son was breech.

  • All 3 of my kids were born by C-section and I did have a few 'issues/complications' with each delivery. However only 1 of my boys (my oldest) has autism.
