Hi. I have 2 kids the one is 3 years and my baby is 6 months. I had my son at 35 weeks dues to complications so i had to have an emergency c section. After my son i went back onto the pill and about 2 months ago i found out that i am expecting my 3rd. We were first very dissappointed as we didnt plan to have a another baby so quick. I am really afraid as ive heard that you should atleast give your boday a year to heal after a c section. My son will be 14 months old when the new baby is born. Can anyone help with regards to the c section as i am terrified having another one

Well, talk with your doctor. One of the reasons they say to wait is so your body has a chance to fully heal. The sooner you get pregnant after a c section, the more likely you will be to have one. The big fear is rupturing your uterus during birth. Your doctor will know your health status and will monitor you closely. Talk to them about your chances of a successful vbac.
