I have had 2 c-sections and both were cut on the same line. I was advised that my 3rd will be cut along the same line as well. The only time they would need to do a classical incision would be if there was too much scarring from your previous c-section or if they could not get to the baby for some reason.

My first scar was a bit wonky, i'd had an infection and staples.. so as i was just getting prepped for my section i asked her to give me a new neater scar and not to staple (it was the same surgeon) and she did as i asked

Leame224, Nope and i found my recovery better Both were EMCS, although first was more rushed to due baby in distress and second was planned but baby wanted to come early so still classed as EMCS but not so much as my first.

I think my 2nd was easier than the first. Maybe it's because your more prepared and know what to expect

They did the incision in the same spot for 3 of my c-sections, my 4th c-section they had to cut a new incision. They didn't do a vertical (or classical), they just cut a little bit below the old incision. The reason for the new incision was that there were complications during my 3rd c-section due to scar tissue- they couldn't stretch the skin open and had trouble getting the baby out. I am not sure how they will do my 5th c-section.

As far as recovery, for me- the 2nd and 3rd c-sections were easier than my first to recover from. But I had labor with my first as well...I also had labor with my 4th- which makes a big difference. Going into a scheduled c-section is much easier in a sense because your body isn't wearing itself out with labor. The anxiety of the surgery itself seems worse when not in labor though, lol.
