Except in rare cases, modern c-sections are performed by low transverse incision a horizontal scar just along your pubic bone, usually hidden by a bikini.

For those of you convinced that a doctor would only ever have your best interests in mind, I suggest you read articles like this one published in October entitled, "Getting a Stubborn Patient to Say Yes". This article has since been reposted in many VBAC communities to make women aware of the manipulation tactics that may be used against them.
Don't take anyone else's word for it when they say "no one in this town will let you have one". Interview, ask, push and shove - you have the right to the safest birth for your baby.

Myth: It takes two years or more for uterine scar tissue to heal. Fact: Your uterus is just like any other cut that is bound with stitches or staples, and does all the healing it's going to in the first few weeks.
