In brief: Absolutely

Make sure you share you history of a c-section with your obstetrician or midwife.
It can possibly affect your pregnancy, & will certainly affect your delivery. Many women do deliver after c-section with the right care if the incision was of the right type. It is a good idea to get a copy of the operative report for your c-section so that if you go into labor without warning you will have it.

My pleasure! Good luck!

In brief: Yes

Possible scaring can be evaluated by ultrasound or hystersalpingogram. Depending on location and severity treatment may be needed.
