1. A blood-flow reduction device for Caesarean delivery operations, comprising:
a frame, defining internally an area inside configured for a cut to be made along an incision line of a uterus of a patient giving birth; and
at least one gripping means configured for exerting a pressure with the frame on the patient giving birth, the at least one gripping means comprising at least one first handle with a proximal connection piece and a distal connection piece, the at least one first handle forming an aspiration duct of an aspirator emerging inside the area towards a center of the frame,
wherein the frame is a closed ring and encloses the area so that the pressure of the frame on the patient giving birth reduces blood flow within the closed area inside the frame as a result of the cut.
