In medicine, few things are more amazing than the birth of a baby. Approximately 33% of pregnant women give birth to children by what is known as a Cesarean Section instead of natural birth. More commonly known as a “C-section,” this procedure extracts the baby from the mother’s abdomen in cases where natural birth may be a danger to the health of the mother or the baby. In this interactive surgery, you will learn why a C-section may be the preferred method for delivery, the surgical steps taken to perform a C-section, and the details for recovering after a C-section. So scrub in, and let’s see if the mother is having a boy or a girl! When you’ve completed this surgery, be sure to check out our interactive Natural Child Birth!
