A Caesarian, or C section, is the medical term for the intervention of childbirth where the baby is cut and removed from the womb of the mother by doctors.
It is believed that there is only one known case of a woman giving herself a caesarian section without a doctor, where both the mother and child survived. On March 5, 2000, in Mexico, Inés Ramírez performed a Caesarean section on herself and survived, as did her son, Orlando Ruiz Ramírez. She was tended to shortly afterwards by a nurse and was taken to hospital.
