    Default How long do you wait?

    How long do you wait before trying for baby number 2 after a Caesar? My ob said 2 yrs but my GP said to fall pregnant after 12 months. We are ready to start trying but Im unsure of the consequences so soon after a Caesar. DS is ) months.

    I had an emergency caesar with DD. My Obs said wait 2 years if you want to try for a VBAC and 1 year if you don't mind another caesarian. A friend of mine got pg when her son was 8 months old. She had a caesar the first time and wasn't given a choice the second time. So it all depends on how you want things to go I guess. After 2 caesars, you can't try VBAC so keep that in mind if you want more than one. Good luck!

    I think there are a few mums on here who had vbacs with their second with a fairly small age gap between babies. I am hoping for a vbac second time around and we are ttc now (dd is 15 months). I have heard that at least 18 months between births is ideal but I've also heard that it doesn't really make a difference - once the tissue has knitted together the scar is not necessarily going to get stronger. It might be worth looking into a bit more. And there are certainly a lot of mums out there who have had a vba2c

    Thanks so much for the replies. They all make sense and I hadn't really considered a VBAC. I'll definitely research it further. I had an extremely positive emergency Caesar experience so at the end of the day, although I would rather a VBAC, I really don't mind. Just want to the right things for me and bub
