Get Pregnant Again After A Year Of Cesarean Delivery.?
I want to ask the doctor. The danger is that I am pregnant again, I have been giving birth to my first child for 1 year by Caesarean and now thank God I was given the trust back in my womb the second child was 1 month old. Is it dangerous for my abdomen if my uterus is in the third trimester? What is the impact on my womb? Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
After undergoing a sectio or cesarean delivery, the mother's body (especially the uterus and abdominal wall) needs recovery time to be able to return to function in the next pregnancy. The minimum time is 6 months. So, post-cesarean mothers should postpone pregnancy for at least 6 months.
Besides the maternal body's readiness to get pregnant again, there are other things that should be considered to decide when the right time to get pregnant again. Namely, a plan or desire to be able to undergo normal labor in the next pregnancy. For this reason, it is necessary for mothers to extend the time of their next delivery, which is a minimum of 18 months or 1.5 years, but in certain hospitals actually take a benchmark of 2 years to be able to give birth normally after undergoing a previous cesarean delivery. If the birth interval is not enough for 18 months, then cesarean delivery should be an option. Because, if forced can cause uterine rupture during labor.
In cesarean delivery that has been undertaken 2 times, there is no other choice for the mother to have a normal delivery at the next delivery. Mothers absolutely have to undergo a Caesarean return.
In addition to the two things above, mothers need to consider when breastfeeding their first child. If you want to be able to feed it optimally until you are 2 years old, then you need to consider the next pregnancy after the child is 2 years old. This is because, during pregnancy there is a decrease in milk production so that it cannot meet the needs of children. Although it is true that breastfeeding during pregnancy is not a prohibition.
So, no problem for mothers to get pregnant at a distance like now. If the delivery will take place in a few months and without other problems, the mother can try labor normally.
Thus hopefully useful.
