Are C-secs easier the 2nd time around?

I had a c-sec with my daughter because she was breech . That was a year ago. We are expecting #2 in March. I'm wondering if c-secs get easier the more you have? Not sure if I will need one, but does it heal faster, or less painful than the 1st??

  • Unless you had some sort of complications the first time, the second time will probably be about the same, but at least you know what to expect this time,

  • the only thing i can think of that may make it a little easier is knowing what to expect and some of the nerve damage form the previous surgery might make it less painful

  • I think it was a little easier... I'm going for my third in march, that's scarey for me.
