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.
