  • I've not had a C-section, but my best friend has, and so have other women I know. The scar is usually minimum. My best friend can wear a midriff or sports bra and you'd never know she had two C-sections!

  • If all you are worried about is a scar and not the complications that can arise from a c-section than I'd say you are a little warped. Think of it as a birth kiss that you got from the miracle of your child

  • It's not too bad. My scar is probably 8 inches across, and it's so low that almost every pair of underwear covers it. Mine healed smoothly, and I was out walking after just two weeks (as in, 4 mile walks).

  • Take an ink pen and draw a line on yourself and that's how thin my scar is. No biggie. The pain afterwards was the problem. And my scar is low, below my bikini hair line so no one ever sees it. Actually, if you take into account nipples and a navel, it looks like a big smiley face ;)

  • Mine is so small and in my hair line that if you didn't know that I had a c-section you would not even know it's there.
