Can I have a baby normal after a c section?

Can I have a baby normal after a c section?

Yes, but concerns: Vaginal birth after C-section = vbac, is often medically possible. After a c-section, the uterus has a scar from healing, that is the major concern. Even though the scar may not look bad before the uterus stretches, as your uterus expands for the growing fetus, the scarred area may become thin, with higher risk of tearing during contractions. Some hospitals decide that the legal risks are too high. ...Read more

You will need to talk to your doc about all of the risks and benefits of attempted vbac in your own situation. ...Read more

How soon after a c-section can I wear heels?

Not to mention, you may not fit the heels you used to wear prior to the pregnancy. ...Read more
