A Caesarean section was a medical procedure in which an incision was made through a mother's abdomen to deliver a baby, sometimes in an urgent emergency situation.

In 2367, Beverly Crusher referred to the spaceborne entity named Junior's birth as a Caesarean section. The baby was too weak to break through its dead mother's shell on its own, so using a narrow ship's phaser beam as a scalpel, an incision was made into the dead creature, just big enough for Junior to break free on its own. (TNG: "Galaxy's Child")
