Actually, There’s No Way to Know if C-Sections Are Changing Humanity.

Brandy Zadrozny interviewd Dr. Rosenberg in her article Actually, There’s No Way to Know if C-Sections Are Changing Humanity.

"For Karen Rosenberg, a biological anthropologist at the University of Delaware who studies human evolution and childbirth practices, the finding that cesarean births affect human evolution is obvious, even if, she says, Mitteroecker’s mathematical study failed to demonstrate how or why.

'It would never occur to me that cesarean sections would not have an effect,” Rosenberg said. “The idea that human behavior affects our evolution is a central idea in understanding of evolution. All kinds of things—when we cook our food, when we share food, when we build shelters—everything we do as cultural animals has the potential to affect our biology.'

Rosenberg notes that cesareans aren’t the first kind of childbirth advancements likely to prompt an evolutionary upshot and should be considered alongside other, non-surgical birthing practices employed by midwives and doulas that have also made birth easier and safer for women." - An exert from Dr. Rosenberg's interview.
