Cesarean Section Day

Cesarean Section Day

This important surgery has saved the lives over 200 years of millions of babies and women. National Cesarean Day is a celebration of the lives of women and babies who have had to undergo this crucial surgery. The mortality rate for mothers and babies in ancient times was much higher than it is today. C-section births were used in order to save the baby who was still in the womb after the mother died during childbirth. Although it is possible to save a mother with surgery, some Jewish texts suggest that this was not the case. In fact, the first American doctor to perform a cesarean section on a woman who had lost her child during childbirth. A few decades later, in early 1800s, the first successful Cesarean Section surgery performed by a woman surgeon was done in Britain. This is the day to show gratitude for the mothers and babies who live happy, healthy lives. Although surgery isn’t the preferred method for babies to enter the world at birth, National Cesarean Section Day recognizes the medical advancements that have saved so many lives. This day is for those who have a friend or family member who has had this experience.

The event is ongoing.
