They say to wait for two years after having a caesarian. How long did other mums wait between their babies?

  • I had caesars with my children and have four of them. I was fine to go as soon as I started to get my periods so tried after 7 months, got pregnant but miscarried twice before finally getting pregnant again after about 15 months with identical twins. Then tried again straight away, another miscarriage and a couple of years of trying then giving up and I was blessed with my fourth. In the end I had four kids under 5 and was so happy.

  • I know someone who had one less than two years and didn’t have any problems. I think it’s one of those things that is recommended due to higher risks but can be done no problems.

  • I didn’t really have a choice as I was a single mum until I found my now husband, so the gap between my children is 8 years! I was told (as I ended up with another c-section) that I would have to wait 3 years this time otherwise it could permanently damage my body as the scar was weak.

  • Did she have any trouble with the birth

  • A friend of mine got pregnant 8 months after her 1st caesar and then 7 months after her 2nds caesar.
