Caesarean birth. A nurse looks after a newborn baby after delivery by Caesarean section, whilst the surgical team tend to the baby's mother. Caesarean births are usually performed when it is either dangerous or impossible to deliver the baby vaginally. Instead, the baby is delivered through a surgical incision in the wall of the mother's abdomen and uterus. Photographed in Kaliningrad, Russia.
