When/if Stephanie has another child, I wonder if it will have to be born born by Caesarian as well?

Also King Louis II of Hungary (Jagiellon, 1506-26) was born premature; the court doctors kept him alive by slaying animals and wrapping him in their warm carcasses as a primitive incubator.

There was concerned about her age , early problems with the pregnancy and the fact that Edward was small and had weak lungs. An ambulance stood by to take mother and child to hospital if needed. Side note - although Edward is now way into his fifties - the Queen is always reminding him of his weak lungs - which I am pretty sure you grow out of.


My brother was born by emergency C-section (all three of us were; although my youngest brother was a non-emergency) at 28 weeks weighing only 1 pound 12 ounces and also had weak lungs; he was on oxygen for the first 10 months of his life, and to this day (he’s 27 now) he still carries a puffer around with him as they’re still a bit twitchy. He was hospitalized for a severe chest infection when he was 6, and had to move out of his apartment last year after only being there for a few days as the tenants above him were smokers. Thank God for surfactant otherwise none of us would be here! (all three of us were born ~3 months early)

eugenie's son august was born by C-section.

zara's lucas was born at home, so naturally and probably without much (or heavy duty) pain relief as i doubt midwives who assist home births can give you more than gas and air and the usual pain killers such as paracetamol.

I recall reading in a bio of Queen Margrethe where she said that Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark was born by caesarean, while Joachim was natural.

I wouldn't want to doubt her word, but that would have been exceptionally unusual for the time. Back then once you had one child by caesarean you had all your subsequent ones (usually just one) that way, and that didn't change until decades after QM had her kids.

That's not always the case.Eliz II was a caesarain in 1926, and her mother had Margaret in a normal labour in 1930. That's well before Q Margrethe.

Is there any proof Margaret wasn't born by caesarean, as logic and overwhelming custom of the time would have seemed to dictate? They don't tend to change these things just because you're royal.

As far as I know there is a report that there was a 6 hour labour, so its unlikley that they would have let her go into labour naturally for so long, if a caesarian was planned.

"Premature" and "Caesarean" can happen independently, though. Full-term babies have often been c-section births.

And there have always been and still are cases of premature babies born naturally.

P.S. I started the Thread "Royals born premature" and it was merged with this one.

Albert Victor/Eddy of Wales, famously so. People who thought they were being funny referred to as him "All-but-on-the-ice". I feel like Eddy's prematurity was likely a significant factor in his health and demeanor and learning issues, but no one has really managed to look into it yet. Speculating that he was Jack the Ripper is too much fun, I guess.

Queen Louise of Sweden née Battenberg/Mountbatten was premature, and I think it was said to play a part in her health her whole life, including her heart issues and somewhat early death.

So was her brother-in-law Andrew of Greece, afaik an even earlier baby, and also not a Caesarean. (Also heart issues and an early death. I want to say it was responsible for his bad eyes as well, but I don't know for sure.)

And Emperor Claudius suffered reportedly from cerebral palsy due to prematurity.

Cant see how people's health probelms in relation to thier being premature, can possibly be worked out now at this late stage.
