Giving birth is a cosmic phenomenon. Many fears arise in every woman who is on the verge of motherhood. Uncertainty is frightening, and anxiety increases as the appointed date approaches.
A cesarean section is the surgical procedure by which a baby is delivered through an incision in the mother's abdomen. This is one of the most ancient and complex operations, surrounded by myths and legends.
In ancient Rome, the "Caesarean Law" prescribed to extract the child from the dead woman's womb by dissecting the abdomen. For most of the time since the 16th century, the procedure had a high mortality rate, mostly because the uterus was yet not sutured, which left the woman dying in pain. Above all, the operation wasn't intended to preserve the mother's life.
It was not until the nineteenth century that such a possibility really came within the grasp of the medical profession. It was the century, when the technique of removing the child out of mother’s womb by incision with the use of anesthetic was introduced. Still, the operation remained one of the most difficult and dangerous for a woman and her child.
Looking back, no one can count the exact number of women who have been dying for centuries in the birth pangs.
This work is an appreciation to all the brave and strong Women who dreamt of giving and gave he gift of life.
