Caesarean section. Close-up of a baby being delivered feet first during a caesarean section. The baby's head is still in the mother's abdomen. The umbilical cord is seen running down the length of the baby's chest. A caesarean section involves making an incision through the abdomen and uterus in order to remove the baby. Caesareans are usually performed when a vaginal delivery would lead to complications, although some women choose to have their baby delivered this way. Photographed at the Hospital Robert Debre, Paris, France.
