Caesareans Sell Probiotics

An Age story titled caesareans-take-toll-on-babies makes positive claims about causal links between caesarian babies’ health outcomes and whether they were exposed to vaginal bacteria. We should certainly like to know if it turns out there is strong evidence that widespread application of pro-biotics could save lives, but I wonder how strong it actually is. Found a few powerpoints but no current directory listing at UNSW BABS for Conway. Most likely their directory is out of date. Is Kate Benson a natural birth campaigner? Is there anything to the beneficial vaginal bacteria theory?
