Data from records of 2,560 premature babies that were small for their gestational age born between 1995 and 2003 showed that those born via cesarean section before 34 weeks of pregnancy had a 30% higher risk of having respiratory distress syndrome than vaginally born babies. The study was presented at the meeting of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine.
