    Note: SFTAH transferred this from old data base when site was updated, thus date and name lost, all dates 2006 & 2007 changed during changeover to odd dates.HiI have a little boy who has ASD symptoms, not officially diagnosed, but we are pretty sure he is somewhere on the spectrum. I am also (almost)a craniosacral therapist,and have chosen to do my diploma project on this subject. I am particularly researching any connection between ASD and birth issues.  (My ds was for example born extremely quickly, and seemed to be in shock/stressed for some months afterwards). I would love to hear from any parents out there who's children had difficult or remarkable births.  If you are interested in helping me with my project, and could answer some questions, I would love to hear from you. Any replies, please send me your email address, and I will send you a wee questionaire.  With much gratitudeDee

    Hi Deejane, Well I had an emergency C-section at 34weeks, as I was carrying twins, and twin 2 wasnt growing. Twin 1 (boy), Twin 2 (girl). I had the choice of whether to carry on with the pregnancy, or have c-section there and then. Two consultants of which neither could convince the other to there way of thinking, so was left to me. Both obviously had problems when born, my daughter was little weighing in at 2lb11, and my son they say was not ready to be born weighed 5lb9. All through life my son (they are 9 now) is the one who has had the problems, and has finally after a very long wait been diagnosed with Autism, Tourettes, Sensory Intergration Disorder and Dyspraxia. My daughter other than being very ickle when born has had no problems whatsoever. So was this due to not being ready to come out of the womb???? Who Knows?? Hope this helps!!! By all means send me a questionaire if this will help x clarisa
