Caesarean baby (Image 11 of 14). View of a member of surgical staff giving a caesarean baby respiratory gases including oxygen through a face mask. This is to ensure that the baby has sufficient oxygen in its tissues. Caesarean section births are usually performed when it is impossible or dangerous to deliver the baby vaginally. The baby is delivered through an incision in the walls of the abdomen, uterus and amniotic sac. This baby was delivered by an elective caesarean section. This view is part of image sequence M810/282-295.
