The normal incision into the uterus made by an obstetrician to deliver a baby during a caesarean section is across the lower part of the uterus a couple of centimetres above the cervix. This is called a Kerr Caesarean incision and causes fewer long-term problems to the woman than any other form of incision into the uterus as it heals very well.
