I was thinking the exact same thing about the mother’s that require C-sections may be more likely untreated gluten intolerants, then they pass that on to their children.  It seems logical to me.  Obviously not all untreated gluten intolerants require C-sections (I had four normal vaginal deliveries), but it does stand to reason this could be a contributor in the rise of C-sections today.  I honestly would hate to think doctor’s are prescribing unnecessary C-sections.
