“But, cesarean have a risk for both of mother and her baby. Our finding have prove that the risk of the obesity in kids are the one factor that should be considered,” said Jorge.

However, this study is not included the data why cesarean is needed or other detail about give birth. “Currently at England, the rate of cesarean is about 26,2 percents. The number have increase from last 10 years and it can be explained by few factors which make the birth process have become harder than before like mother age which older or fatter than 10 years ago,” said Daghni Rajasignam.
