On March 5, 2000, Ines Ramirez Perez went into labor but was unable to get any medical care to help with the delivery.

Find out what happened afterward and stories of other self-cesareans.  Also, learn about a toy made from Zectron, a man who had the ultimate solution for a sore throat, a doctor who removed his own appendix, and another man who washed his intestines under the kitchen faucet.
