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?

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,
