  • I don’t think it’s any different to a “normal” birth, unless you suffered some specific birth injuries as a result.

  • How quickly are you planning on having another baby? I had a breech with my first. There were a few extra stitches involved but I wasn’t told there was a time limit on when to have my next baby

  • My breach baby turned into a C section I was warned to wait 2years I waited 1 and had my last baby natural no issues

  • I think there’s no reason to wait any longer then usual, but if you’re concerned I would talk with a professional.

  • Should be the usual time as if you had a normal delivery, as long as there were no other issues

  • I’ve had a breech birth and it was never suggested that I wait for any time before my next baby

  • My first was a breech. There’s 3 years between him and my next one. No probs

  • 12 months I would say minimum. Let your body recover.

  • good luck on trying again

  • probably as long as you would wait with a normal birth as long as there are no complications and the doc gives you the all clear. try to wait until that six month checkup

  • Breech itself is no reason to suggest you should wait to fall pregnant again. Especially if it was a natural birth, no complications and recovered well.

  • Every pregnancy is different my first was natural my second was a breach emergency c section; it’s when you feel ready, relax no stress

  • Thankyou everyone. Its for my daughter. I love your advice

  • I’ve had two children one natural then a breach that was a ceazer I was to scared to go through that again, but I would say about 18mths were all different and so is each pregnancy if you feel ready then you may be.

  • That’s something I would check with your OBGYN, don’t mess with your body
