Barry Epstein asked:

The gemara on 40a says that if a woman delivers a baby by Caesarian section she does not get childbirth tumah. Is her bleeding tahor?

Barry Epstein, Dallas, USA

The Kollel replies:

There is an argument between Rebbi Shimon and the Rabanan (41b) whether or not the blood which is present in a Caesarian section birth makes the person who touches it Tamei (see Rashi ibid., DH "Rabanan Savri").

All the best,

Yaakov Montrose
