  • Sorry, I don't know anything about it. I did bump you, though. Have you asked your doctor about it?

  • I would call your doctor or midwife to discuss your concerns. Presumably they would not recommend a vaginal delivery if they thought that there was danger with the hernia. My sister had a hernia and ended up having a c-section because of it. Perhaps it is based on the placement and severity of the hernia whether it's safe to deliver vaginally or not. But definitely call your doc's office to discuss it--it is a legitimate concern. Good luck to you.
