Caesarian section in medieval Spain
Until modern times, caesarian sections usually resulted in the death of the mother. Therefore they were usually performed when the mother was already dead or considered beyond help.
We know that the Queen was cared for by French court doctors, and perhaps not by a midwife, and maybe a midwife would not have performed a caesarian. However that does not mean her life could have been saved.
