What would be the correct CPT code for a D&C required after Neuraxial labor of a term live born delivery due to a retained placenta without hermorage?

Postpartum uterus has been already dilated during delivery of the newborn, so dilation is not required for this surgery. Postpartum curettage will be coded. So I am leaning towards 59160.
