Caesarean preparation. Midwife preparing for the delivery of a baby by Caesarean section. During this surgical procedure, a baby is delivered though an incision made in the mother's abdomen and uterus. A Caesarean is performed when it is difficult or dangerous to deliver the baby vaginally. A midwife is a specialised nurse who cares for women during pregnancy and childbirth, as well as in the postnatal period. The gown, cap, gloves and face mask that the midwife is wearing will help to maintain sterile conditions in the operating theatre.
