2 C's in One Year?

Hi All... I had an Emergency C with my son in May (he's 6mos. old now) and just found out I'm pregnant again. My practice doesn't do VBACs. Does anyone here have experience having multiple C-sections in under a year/year and a half? I'm a little nervous about it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • A close friend of mine has 2 kids 15 months apart.  She had no problems with either csection.  Hope that helps ease your mind.
  • My two were born fifteen months apart, and there were no issues with the second c/s. Make sure to take good care of yourself after the second c/s though; its hard to remember when you are trying to run after a toddler, etc. :-)
  • My c/s were a year and 20 days apart. Everything was fine. Then again I didn't have a toddler to take care of during the pregnancy or after surgery

  • I did and everything went fine.  My scar did hurt a little bit from time to time, but that's about it!  My second one was planned and I felt my recovery time was a lot shorter!

  • My two are 15 months apart and the only difference I had was i had staples on my incision with the first c-section and dissolving stitches with the second so the second c-section I had a very good recovery. Hope this helps a little. Ask for dissolving stitches.

  • Mine are 15 months apart and both C's; second one was easier recovery, but you do need to ensure you don't overdo it as it would be very easy to do the secondtime more easily.
