Autism in children during pregnancy

pregnant women who require drugs to have their labor started or sped up are slightly more likely to have autistic children.

Do you have any actual proof of that? There was a time when people thought the MMR vaccine gave children autism and that was disproved.

If this was the case, more women would be refusing induction and there would be something on the news about it.

It doesn't seem fair going around saying this when pregnancy and labour is a worrying time for any woman.

For the child to be of the autistic spectrum one or both parents would need to carry the gene. If this is the case whether the mother is induced or not she may still have a child that falls on the autistic spectrum.

My step son is on the autistic spectrum and if you were to meet him, you'd think he was a normal child. But he has certain traits that puts him in the spectrum. The Spectrum for autism is huge and ranges so much from mild to extreme.

Hi Keng,
I don't think. You should consult with a professional doctor to know more about Aspergers.
