Hi. Please i need some help and advise otherwise i am going absolutly scared. I will tell my story very shortly cause i don't want upset anyone. Basically i had my baby Thomas at May 2014 who born asleep ( stillborn baby at 38 weeks ) and i delivery by c-section. 
However, me and my partner after a lots of conversations decided go ahead with another pregnancy as it was the only way we find for us to cope. I become pregnant 10 weeks later and i am 30 weeks right now and delivery this baby in nearly 6 weeks time. However, in this last stage i am strugling to cope not just because my fear but also because i will have another c-section in 10/11 months apart. I know also i've been checked by doctora every couple weeks by scans and everything but one the end of the day you just worry and i started be paranoid about my next c-section. Please someone here can let me know if you having 2 c-sections in a short time and if everything went well. Please this help means a lot to me. Thank you. Xx

Yes, you can have two c-sections within a year without any complications. I am sorry about your loss and I hope you are looking forward to your new arrival. The risks of a repeat c-section are the same for you as for any other mom. Try not to worry, if you are in the care of a doctor that you trust and have a good hospital nearby, all should be well.
