Background: Increasing rates of Caesarean sections worldwide has raised concerns whether this could increase the offspring’s risk of developing mental disorders, potentially through alterations of the gut microbiota. However, no prior study has investigated the risk of all mental disorders.
Methods: In a nationwide Danish cohort study we identified 2,196,687 births between 1980 and 2015, resulting in 38.5 million observation-years. Exposure was ‘Caesarean Section’ and outcome the child’s risk of any mental disorder. Absolute and relative risk contrasts were estimated using inverse probability weighting to adjust for age, calendar time, and confounding while accounting for the competing risk of death.
Results: will be published
