Live C-Section Delivery

Live C-Section Broadcast This Morning on The Today Show

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Though some families consider their birth of a child a private affair that only a select few should witness, others are happy to share the photos and videos with everyone they know. One Boston family decided to share the experience with an entire nation this morning as their son's scheduled c-section birth was broadcast live on The Today Show. The moving segment – which brought many viewers to tears – provided many viewers with their first glimpse of an actual c-section birth.

Did any aspects of the c-section birth surprise you?

Wow Anon #4! 5 c-sections! Did you find it harder to recover after each one? With my second baby I hope to be able to deliver naturally (my daughter was a c-section), but if I can't, I'm worried about the recovery from a second c-section. Nope, not surprised. All births bring me to tears no matter how the baby arrived into the world!

i cry at most births i see. this one, not so much...yawn. congrats to the family, but, you can see c-sections on TLC/Discovery Health all the time. and i totally agree w/ above poster. any doc who says c-section is necessary based on weight alone hasn't read enough medical literature.

The only part that surprised me was someone saying on camera that the c-section was a good choice since the baby was 10 pounds. Ugh. I am loving watching the vaginal birth advocates getting in arms about that on twitter.

Having had two c-sections, nothing about the segment surprised me, but I will admit that it brought me to tears! When they pulled the baby out - and when they showed the mother crying - I was a ball of mush!

I've seen enough of the on A Baby Story. I don't really get why they had this on the Today Show.
