Advice Summary

how long after a c-section is it safe to get pregnant again?

The community offered this mom in need a lot of great advice. Read some of their responses below.

“My doctor said 2 years at minimum, but the longer you wait, the less likely you are to experience complications.”

“I had two c-sections 14 months apart, and I would not recommend it. I had a lot of complications with my 2nd c-section.”

“That is 100% a doctor question. Specifically, the doctor who did your C-Section as she/he will know exactly what condition they closed in and what best to recommend.”

“It takes the average body between 12 and 18 months to heal from a pregnancy. Your best decision would be to get a check-up with your doctor.”

“Each of my c-sections were about 3 years apart and my docs were never concerned that it was too soon. I think they say to wait at least a year after to get pregnant again though.”

“After any pregnancy, the recommended time for full recovery is close to 2 years. Any closer and you run many medical risks to yourself and the second baby who is trying their best to grow in a less-than-opportune environment.”

    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited here online on the 22 of MARCH and i saw a marvelous testimony of a woman from United States on the forum about the good works DR BAKABA I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR.BAKABA did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my husband back i just as i read on the internet I was truly shocked when my husband knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR.BAKABA For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of my marriage. Contact him now for any kind of help via Email; [email protected] or you add him on whatsApp number +2347063836098 or call HIM, THANKS DR BAKABA i will always tell the world how you bring my family back
