  • There is nothing you can do.. The doctors and nurses will watch you closely. Just because it happened the first time does not mean it will happen again.. As for the c-section, If I remember my OB/peds rotation, a c-section can increase your risk..

  • If they know about it ahead of time they can have preventative measures in place when you deliver. I had the same problem first time around and had three more no problems.
