In brief: Smarter?

No adverse outcomes for the infant after c-section! several studies have found that infant born via c-section are more intelligent than those born via vaginal delivery, although some of this effect may be due to socioeconomic differences between families who can afford a prelabor cesarean section and those who cannot.

In brief: None to speak of

Although we look for some transient neonatal issues/vulnerabilities there is no long term issues i can think of after doing this for 3 decades.
