  • I had c-section and got pregante 11 months later. I've heard that it was safe to have another one after a year or to let your body rest for at least a year.

  • In my experience (c-sections 10/02, 06/04, 07/05, and 06/07) everything went just fine. the recovery was much easier each time, also. I have a very experienced OB that works w/ high-risk pregnancies(I was high risk for an unrelated thing) and he was not at all concerned about their spacing.

    You don't have to have a repeat c/s, though, lots of moms have successful VBACs.
