Were you looking for information about Cesarean Section? Ceasarean is a common misspelling of cesarean.
A cesarean section, also known as a C-section, is the most common surgery performed today. This is a surgical procedure that involves removing a baby from a mother's womb. During the surgery, an incision is made in the abdomen (stomach) and uterus, and then the baby is removed through the opening. Although a cesarean section is typically safe, there are some rare complications that can occur, such as infections or minor bleeding. It can take approximately four to six weeks to recover from this surgery.
