Study suggests C-sections pose risk for premature babies

(CNN) - New research shows C-sections could pose a risk for some babies born premature.

Researchers found C-sections didn't reduce the odds of complications for preterm babies.

In fact, premature babies born via C-section had a higher rate of breathing problems.

The March of Dimes has been working to educate people about what it believes are medically unnecessary C-sections, especially before 39 weeks.
