The Distance Of Pregnancy Is Too Close After A Cesarean Section?
Good afternoon .. I want to ask My wife became pregnant again after giving birth to a cesarean. My child is still 5 months old, thank God my wife was given the mandate again to get a second pregnancy. Here my wife was immediately stressed because of that because the distance was too close let alone giving birth first by cesarean. What I want to ask is whether it is safe to give birth again ?? Then what should we prepare so that the pregnancy goes smoothly, is it safe to get pregnant again for my wife, please ask for a solution, thank you very much HealthReplies.com
Thank you for the question.
The recommended interval between pregnancies for women who have given birth by cesarean is not less than 2 years. With this time interval, the reproductive organs can have enough time to return to normal as before.
The distance between pregnancies that are too close (less than 1 year), risks causing the mother and fetus to experience various complications, such as:
Complications of the mother: a higher risk of miscarriage, placental abnormalities (eg placenta accreta, increta and percreta), heart problems, prolonged labor, greater likelihood of cesarean delivery, premature rupture of membranes, massive post-saline bleeding
Complications of the fetus: higher risk of developmental obstacles in the womb, born prematurely, born with LBW, fetal distress, until death in the womb or immediately after birth
Especially for women who previously gave birth by cesarean, the risk of uterine rupture (uterine tears) will be greater if the distance between pregnancies is too close.
However, despite the many risks, if the pregnancy has already occurred, as a wise adult, you and your wife should be responsible for the mandate that God gave. The trick is to take care of the pregnancy as well as possible through adequate rest, consumption of a variety of balanced nutritional foods and drinks, do not exert physical activity too tired, stay away from cigarettes, also do not consume alcohol and drugs. Do not forget the regular control of your wife's pregnancy every month to the doctor or obstetrician. Get rid of all forms of excessive anxiety or fear, because this will not solve the problem, but instead complicates it. Pray a lot and give thanks to God so that he gives the best to his wife and fetus in the womb.
Hope this helps ...
