C-section or Vaginal Delivery -- Should Your Kid’s School Know? Photo: SHUTTERSTOCK/THE BUMP
When your baby gets ready to start elementary school, will the way he was delivered play a role in whether a school accepts him? That’s what parents filling out an application form for Dry Creek School District in Roseville, California, wondered when they came to a surprising question on the form. It asked whether the child was delivered by c-section or vaginally -- and for the c-section option, it asked why the procedure was performed, according to CBSSacramento.com. From the news report, it’s not clear why the school even included that question. And we can’t think of a good reason. In fact, we don’t see a difference between the babies we know who were delivered by c-section or vaginally, let alone the five-year-olds.
Can you think of a good reason why a school would want to know how a child was delivered? Or is this totally ridiculous?
