Why are some incesions up and down? I have had three and all have been side to side. Just curious because we will be having another baby.

The vertical and t-incisions should only be done in emergency situations where that type of incision will get the baby out faster.  They do them a lot in preterm delivery but it isn't always needed.

I googled it and this is what I found...Hope it helps some

  • The classical Caesarean section involves a midline longitudinal incision which allows a larger space to deliver the baby. However, it is rarely performed today as it is more prone to complications.
  • The lower uterine segment section is the procedure most commonly used today; it involves a transverse cut just above the edge of the bladder and results in less blood loss and is easier to repair.
