Yes. As a matter of fact, the Oaxacan Indian Inés Ramírez had her C-section. Alone, without the help of her husband who was getting drunk at the time and the nearest center eight hours away, she had to face the birth alone.

Knowing that she was at high risk, she decided to have a C-section herself. To date, she is the only woman on record to have undergone this procedure alone (and to have survived). This is it is necessary to emphasize that all pregnant women deserve quality and dignified health services.
