I want a third baby, but I have previously had two c-sections, then a tummy tuck and then an umbilical hernia repair too! Is it possible? I'm not too fussed about how the tummy looks afterwards, my main concerns are really if baby would be okay and if I would be okay to go and have another c-sections? Any help and guidance would be great.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the possible pregnancy outcome after previous C-sections and other surgeries without examining you. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to see if you can go ahead with your pregnancy plans. If the previous scar tissues are healthy (and if there are no other problems associated affecting other factors governing chances of pregnancy), your doctor might consider giving you a clear check to proceed with your pregnancy plans. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
