MODEL RELEASED. Caesarean section. Baby being delivered feet first during a caesarean section. One of the surgeons has his fingers in the baby's mouth. 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.
Model release available. Property release not required.
