I am a doula and frequently tell my clients (prenatally or during an induction or during labor) about the benefits to the baby of going through the labor process vs. having a scheduled cesarean. Reading another thread I realized I don't know what the research says about whether those benefits (lower risk of breathing problems, specifically) are more evident in spontaneous labor than in induced labor. I.e., if I say to someone facing induction "well, at least your baby will have the advantage of going through labor!" is that accurate?
I'm interested specifically in studies rather than anecdotal evidence. Thanks!
