Healing Time Rss

Hi Alex,

I have a 4 month old - who was delievered by emergency C-section. My husband and I are thinking about trying for another child.

Might sound silly - but after a C-section - how long after can we concieve again - how much 'healing time' is needed?

Thanks.

Hi,

Thank you for your enquiry. There is no set time to wait to get pregnant again, especially if there were no complications with your first birth. Discuss this with your health care providers too in case you had a large blood loss or something that was not discussed at the time of your child’s birth. You also need to look at the reasons for the Caesar and if any investigations need to be attended before you fall pregnant again.

Best wishes,
Alex.
