Pregnant Again After Cesarean Section 1 Year Ago?
… now my son is 1 year 3 months old. my first child had cs surgery, and now my guess is right that now i am pregnant again, is it risky for me and my baby? I read on the internet that just after surgery, the max age of a child is 2 years old and can only get pregnant again. I’m so scared
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A cesarean section is a delivery procedure by making an incision in the abdomen. So that the baby is not expelled through the vagina, but through the stomach. Cesarean section is usually an option when there are conditions that make normal delivery impossible, such as for babies who are too big, babies with certain abnormalities, breech positions, and so on.
In your case, it's true, it would be better if after a cesarean section, you wait about 18-24 months to get pregnant again. This is necessary none other than to give your body a chance to fully recover and be ready to conceive, as well as reduce the risk of complications that may occur.
But of course, it's impossible for you to abort your pregnancy. So our advice, you should immediately consult a gynecologist by telling your history, so that your doctor can immediately provide optimal treatment with your current condition.
Meanwhile, what you can do is limit physical activity, avoid stress, eat balanced nutrition, take folic acid supplements and report any conditions that you think are doubtful or even dangerous to your obstetrician. Hope your pregnancy and delivery goes well.
So, hopefully useful.
