How did the cesarean section get its name?

    There are many possibilities for how the ‘caesarean section’ got its name. The procedure is said to have been derived from a Roman code called ‘Lex Caeseara’ which specified that the baby be cut out of the mother’s stomach if she dies during birth. Other sources say that there is a link between the name and Julius Caesar, as an ancestor of Caesar’s was told to have been delivered in this way.

         Another theory for the origin of the name is caedere (to cut). It’s supine stem is caesum.
