You Can Watch a Live-Tweeted C-Section on Wednesday

Tomorrow, you can watch the miracle of life unfold on Twitter.

Women’s Memorial Hermann Hospital at Memorial City Medical Center in Houston Texas will be the first hospital to live-tweet a surgical birth.

“This is a medically indicated c-section. 39-year-old mom had an urgent c-section before & chose not to VBAC. Our goal is to educate,” says Memorial Hermann. “Patient privacy is of utmost importance. Patient & family have consented & we’ll only disclose age & condition.”

You’ll be able to follow multiple stages of the process: admission testing, anesthesia and delivery of the baby. It won’t be for the faint of heart, as Memorial Hermann promises live, close-up photography and video alongside the play-by-play-tweets.

This is the same hospital that live-tweeted a brain surgery last May.

You can follow all of the action on the @houstonhospital account and the special #MHbaby as well. Everything kicks off Wednesday morning at 7am CST.
