VIDEO: Cesarean section: The surgical operation

Cesarean deliveries are performed by Obstetricians for various indications. In the 5:08 long video that follows, one such surgical operation is done. There are two ways in which surgeons cut through the tummy of the pregnant mother. One is through the midline incision, and the other one--which is my favorite--is the Pfannenstiel method or more popularly called the 'Bikini cut'. If you're an expecting mother, watch this and hold no fear, the surgical team will always be at your best interest.
