Caesarian Section

Caesarian Section

Dr. Kennedy
A Caesarian section is an obstetrical procedure, also referred to as a C-section, in which a baby, rather than being born vaginally, is surgically extracted (removed) from the uterus. As the name “Caesarian” suggests, this is not exactly a new procedure. It was done in ancient civilizations upon the death of a pregnant woman who was near full term in order to salvage the baby. Julius Caesar (or one of his predecessors) was born by this procedure.
