Can caesarian delivery and respiratory distress syndrome be related?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

Generally respiratory distress following c section is because of fluid in the lungs that can take few hours to clear up , other times it really depends on the reason for the c section.
If the c section is done because of fetal distress it indicates there was some problem already and c section is only incidental.
