Caption: Caesarean section scar. A scar from the horizontal cut just above the pubic bone six weeks after a Caesarean birth. The scar is not very noticeable and comes below the 'bikini line'. In this operation the baby is delivered through incisions in the abdominal and uterine walls. The mother is given an epidural or a general anaesthetic. Caesarean sections are performed if the baby is unable to fit through the mother's pelvis or shows signs of foetal distress (lack of oxygen) before the cervix is fully dilated. Other reasons for this procedure include a placenta that is lying close to the cervix, and unsuccessful induction of labour.
