Second C-Section incision

I have one daughter and I had a C-Section because she was breech. I went into labor the day before my scheduled C-Section. I've already decided I will have a C-Section with all my children since I didn't do so great in labor. Now this may be a silly question but I'm lost here and curious as can be. When I decide to have more children in the future, will my doctor just cut me open on my previous incision, or will it be under/above it?

  • The doctor will most likely use the same incision site. I have had two children by C-section and also had two other surgeries as well. My doctor used the same incision and I did not have any complications.
