I saw a five-year-old boy today with constipation. His mother related that in his c-section, the cord was tightly wrapped around his belly two or three times. In CFT he showed severe fascial strain in his small intestinal area. From our newborn research two issues may be presenting. First is the obvious pressure of the wrapped cord. Secondly, the wrapping may have created a pulling strain directly at the navel into the small intestine. We often saw small intestinal/digestive issues with our short cord babies. It is all connected. 🙂
