Wait time of healing for a classical c section. How long should one wait before trying to get preganant after having a classical c section?
Thank you for this question. There are many different answers that can vary for each patient. Depending on how the healing has occurred and even what type of C - section was completed, so it is important to know many different variables. For that reason, it is vital that you speak with your doctor about this question rather than getting answers from other sources, as you need to have information that is specific to you to make sure that you are fully healed and that both you and your new baby will be able to be healthy throughout the duration of another pregnancy and child birth. There are also emotional and family factors that should be considered as well, and so you should definitely discuss all of these with your doctor to make sure that you are fully recovered and ready to become pregnant again. Please speak with your doctor.
