Caesarean baby (Image 13 of 14). View of a member of surgical staff weighing a baby following a caesarean section birth. The baby has a clamp on the remains of his umbilical cord. Caesarean sections 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. Babies are weighed to give an indication of overall health. This baby was delivered by an elective caesarean section. This view is part of image sequence M810/282-295.
