In brief: Hmmm

Depend on how big it is, how painful it is, circumstance how you develop it.
The urgency to repair it rest on those factor. Seek ur doctor advice at your early convinience.

In brief: Benefits fetus

It helps a fetus to have loose belly muscles.
Otherwise the blood passing into the belly button from the placenta would have a hard time at that tight area.After birth, the strap muscles of the belly remain loose until baby begins to sit up, pull up & otherwise tighten them.At that point, most pooched out bb's go back in.If still out after walking a year, i'll have them evaluated for surgery.
