In brief: Hernia recurrence

First and foremost, a prior hernia repair is unlikely to interfere with your pregnancy or delivery.
However, the location of the hernia and the method of repair may have some impact if mesh was used and a c-section is necessary. Be sure and review this information with your obstetrician early in your pregnancy.

I would wait at least 6 months.
