This video, created by Nucleus Medical Media, shows the common indications for a cesarean delivery, including dystocia, placenta previa, fetal distress and multiple births. A cesarean section (c-section) surgery to deliver a baby in frank breech (feet first) position is also shown. During the procedure, the surgeon (usually an obstetrician/gynecologist, i.e. ob/gyn) makes an incision in the abdominal wall and uterus in order to deliver the baby. The animation also includes information on what to expect before and after the surgery.

Why can't babies just appear out of thin air like they do in The Sims?

My mom had to have a c-section with me and my siblings because she has a balloon in her head from a car accident when she was 18. If she had a natural birth, there would've been too much pressure on her head and the balloon would have popped and she would've died instantly.

I had two c-section with my two adorable babies. The first one was an emergency because I gave birth to a premature baby at 6 months. The second one was when I was almost turning 9 months but it was because my c-section from my first baby was shaped like a T. But everything went fine. Finally the result became that my first daughter passed away when she was 23 weeks old because she had an infection in her stomach, and my second daughter she's my everything now she's almost 4 months and I'm proud of her that she's good and just growing :)

I had a C-Section because the umbilical cord was wrapped around my son's neck. I really wanted a natural birth, but I'm just thankful that my baby was healthy and delivered safely.

For people thinking c section is a nice easy painless way.. You are very much mistaken! You have an injection in your spine which hurts like hell. And the pain you feel for around 6 weeks after is horrendous. I had one 3 years ago for my baby being breech.. And it's the worst pain I have ever felt. There's no easy way to have a baby.. Unless you have a really easy vagibal birth or very lucky and don't feel pain after a section.. Which I rarely heard anyone say and never heard anyone say it about a c section. But if it's a a medical urgency you don't really have a choice. As long as baby and mother are safe at the end of giving birth which ever way it happens that's all that matters. But from someone who has had a section.. This isn't your easy painless route trust me!
