New this morning, a trend in delivery rooms brings a better birthing experience for moms and babies.    

Joseph Denny Queen was delivered by Cesarean section, and instead of being taken away for medical attention by a care team, he immediately met his dad and mom, right in the operating room.

While operating rooms have bright lights and a cold, sterile environment, Joseph's team creating the same atmosphere you see in this birthing room.     

They call this type of delivery a gentler c-section. The goal is to make it just like any traditional birth for a mom and not think of it as a surgery.

But doctors stress this new type of delivery is only for low-risk c-sections
