I got to know that I am pregnant and I have a 9 months old daughter from C section. My concern is if it is OK to have a 2nd c section in a gap of 18months. 1st c section was on 23rd December 2016. Now I am 7 weeks pregnant. Please advice

remember how long it takes to recoverfrom a caesarean. You probably felt exhausted and sore at first. And you may not be back to all your day-to-day activities if it wasn't that long ago. So make sure you give your body a really good opportunity to recover before your next pregnancy.   In most caesareans, a cut is made just along the top of your pubic hair. This is called a bikini cut. It usually heals by three months after your baby's birth. But waiting at least six months may be particularly important if you want to try for a vaginal birth next time. This is called a VBAC, which is a vaginal birth after caesarean.   There is a very low risk of your caesarean scar tearing with a VBAC. This is called uterine rupture. Even though the risk is low, it may increase if there is a short gap between your pregnancies. A small gap also increases your risk of having alow-lying placenta (placenta praevia) or that the placenta will separate from your womb (uterus). This is a serious complication known as placental abruption. don't worry everything will be alright u carry on wit tiny creature n enjoy... This may sound frightening, but all these risks are very low. The most important factor is that you and your partner feel ready for another baby.
