  • It'll be done through a small incision in your belly button - and chances are it won't be done til at least a few hours after you deliver. I had it done 3 years ago - all parties involved knew that after having baby vaginally my tubes would be tied, but of course it all depended on the time of day, when the surgery would happen. I ended up delivering at 10pm, so I was added to the surgery rotation for the next day - surgery was around 2. I had a 1 inch incision along the bottom of my belly button. They don't do that stuff vaginally to anyone! My SIL had the small belly button incision plus 2 tiny incisions in her ovary area. Most likely you'll just have the 1 small incision in your belly button. Best of luck mama, the recovery isn't the easiest when you've just had a baby too - at least mine wasn't!

  • IT will be your belly button.
