A Twitter first is happening this Wednesday at Women's Memorial Hermann Hospital at Memorial City Medical Center.

A local couple will "deliver" Twitter's first Cesarean section baby and it will be live. The hospital says it's all about educating the public about what happens during a C-section.

You can catch the action this Wednesday starting at 7:30am by following hashtag #MHBaby. They will use live, up-close video, still photography and play-by-play tweets.

The patient has given consent to the Twitter broadcast of her surgery, but for her privacy the hospital says it will not disclose her identity.
