My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?
At Time of Surgery: If determined to have another pregnancy, the best help would have been at time of surgery with a two layer closure of the uterine opening. Docs argue about best interval time but logically waiting over a year before conceiving appears to decrease risk of rupture. Lastly, the most dangerous thing is beyond your control since an accreta is your highest risk & unpreventable. A good OB - priceless! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm O+, my husband is AB+. What's the likelihood of our baby having neonatal anemia? High risk pregnancy w/ maternal anemia and planned c-section cutting through anterior placenta previa.
Possible: There is some possibility of an A/O or B/O reaction with jaundice and hemolytic disease but that part of this is usually minor and easy to manage.

Is there a tight link between first trimester subchorionic hemorrhage and second trimester preterm premature rupture of membranes?
Can a common cold during the first trimester increase the chance of birth defects? No fever and no medications were taken.
No: The common cold is a localized process i your upper airway.It does not generate a blood phase that would send the virus to baby through your placenta. Similar conditions like strep throat or a UTI that are localized are also no risk. It is the blood borne issues like measles that cause problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes.: Placental abruption is poorly understood and unpredictable. The risk of recurrence has been reported to be 5-15%, compared to a baseline incidence of 0.4-1.3% in the general population. After two consecutive abruptions, the risk of a third rises to 20 to 25%. When the abruption is severe enough to kill the fetus, there is 7% recurrence risk with the same complication. Aspirin could help prevent it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
