Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Caesarean birth. Surgeons holding open the abdominal incision during a Caesarean section to deliver twins. A second incision will be made through the uterus (womb, centre) and the babies will be delivered through both incisions. This procedure is performed when it is too difficult or dangerous to make a vaginal delivery. An epidural anaesthetic can be taken to numb the nerves that supply the chest and the lower half of the body, allowing the mother to remain conscious during the delivery. Alternatively, the operation may be performed under general anaesthetic. Photographed at Arras Hospital, France.
