I have never heard this in almost seven years on this board. What increased risk? It's not a colon disorder. I think she knows nutting! B)

You should choose your method of birth. I can't see a reason where having Celiac would be a concern in your delivery. But as always, check with your doctor.

Is there a natural childbirth instructor available at your hospital?

I personally hae heard the exact opposite. i googled c section & celiac & the research shows a higher incidence of celiac WITH a c section because the baby doesn't pass through the natural flora of the mother. definitely research that before you so what that nurse told me to do

I'm calling total BS with that one!

And good luck with your labour and delivery. I refused any pitocin... but after six days of labour did give in to having an epidural ( for my sanity... and my husband's lol) ;)

I lbet she's thinking of Chrohns. Not sure if that's a real require reccommendation for them either, but would make more sense.

AFIK, it's not even recommended with Crohn's. My sister has Crohn's and has had two natural deliveries with no complications and a section was not ever recommended to her because of it.

Jeez, you beat my 4 days of labor. I finally accepted pit and epi after I stalled @ 3 1/2 days. Baby was fine but I was exhausted and was afraid I'd end up with a c-section (and since we were sure I had Endometriosis we were all wanting to avoid that).

I do want to add, for all the pregnant ladies, that it wasn't 4 full days of hard labor. It was start and stop till the last 36 hours. No one will make you go any longer than you want without an epi, I promise.

That's sounds crazy! And like the other poster. I read the exact opposite. More babies who are born by c-section have celiac disease due to not going through the birth canal. (Of course I had both mine the reg. way and she has it anyway!)

I've delivered all 5 totally natural with a midwife -4 out of the hospital- the only questionable problem I had which had nothing to do with delivery was my 3rd had meconium when his water broke at home while I was asleep so the midwife wanted me to deliver in hospital do they could suction his nose and mouth. He was fine but he is my only diagnosed celiac child!
