A planned cesarean....mom lost her first daughter at 8 days of age due to severe genetic problems after an emergency cesarean. She and her doctor decide on a repeat cesarean for this, mom's second daughter, out of mom's for the baby's health after their previous experience.

Mom is all ready for surgery, and dad sits by her side.

Here comes the head!

It's a girl!

Doctor's clamp and cut the cord.

The baby is then moved to the warmer to get checked while mom's abdomin is repaired.

The baby is checked...a healthy 7 pound 4 ounce little girl with apgars of 8 and 10!

Dad holds his daughter as mom meets her for the first time.
