Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Delivery (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
What are the types of uterine incisions with C-sections?
For women who have had C-sections, a vaginal delivery in subsequent pregnancies is often possible, depending on the type of incision that was made on the uterus and the reason for the initial C-section. This information is available from the medical records of their initial C-sections. Hysterectomy is the general medical term for an incision into the uterus.
There are three types of uterine incisions.
The direction of the first incision on the skin (up and down or side to side) does not necessarily coincide with the direction of the incision made in the uterus.
