The baby is delivered through an incision made in the mother's abdominal wall, and then through the wall of the uterus.

A caesarean section is usually performed when it is safer for the mother or the baby than a vaginal delivery. Other times, a woman may choose to have a caesarean section rather than deliver her baby vaginally. A caesarean section is needed if a vaginal birth isn't possible or safe as in the baby's head is large for the mother's pelvic, baby is presenting bottom or feet first or is lying sideways, cervix is blocked by the placenta, placenta is no longer providing baby with enough oxygen, multiple babies, dangerous maternal conditions such as high blood pressure, umbilical cord is prolapsed, (fallen through the cervix and into the vagina) or mother had 2 or more C. Section. Prior to surgery pre-existing illnesses are discussed as they may influence decisions on surgery and anaesthetic. Possible risks and complications also should be explained.
