pregnancy after a ruptured uterus

First of all I'm so glad I've found this website. And here's my sad story:
I began having consistent cramps/contractions at 32 weeks pregnant and soon after i began bleeding. After 4 long days after steroids and magnesium i began to dilate. Once they took me to the delivery room everything that could go wrong went wrong. Out of no where my contractions kinda went away and I began having this extremely painful sharp pain down there and along with it some bleeding. My baby girl was in distress and her heartbeat could not be found on the monitor for about 10-15 mins soon after i was rushed to the operation room. At this point i was blacking out and i was sweating so much. When I woke up in the recovery room they told me i was given a second chance at life. To be honest I was too scared to ask about my baby girl but the pediatrician came in to tell me she had lost oxygen in her brain but she was alive. The next day my doctor came in to tell me my uterus had ruptured and my baby was found in her sack in my abdominal cavity. And that i had 3 blood transfusions. He was in shock because he said that he had never came across this in his years of practice especially someone like me. You see i had 3 prior pregnancies all vaginal and between 3 and 4 years apart. And with this pregnancy it had been 6 years since i had my youngest son. My baby girl passed away 2 weeks after she was born. My doctor who delivered me advised not to get pregnant again that I would need a really special team. At my clinic they told me to wait a year. My daughter's death was extremely painful and I'm obsessed with trying one more time. My question is has anyone had a pregnancy after a ruptured uterus with a c section(I had an emergency c section)? All this happened in April 2016😢

I personally wouldn't even try after all that had happened.
You doctor even advised against it. You should really be talking to medical professionals before even falling pregnant to see what advice they have. You can go and see different doctors but I would say your life is more important than having another baby.
