Ask your question

  • 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



  • I was always under the impression that twelve months was the time it was recommended before trying to give the body time to recover. I would ask either your maternal child health nurse or an obstetrician and give them the specifies of your birth etc.



  • Worth talking to your gp about or obstetrician about.



  • I thought it was 12 months+ depending on how your body is doing.



  • check with your doctor as to what they think and if you are healed nicely and feel well than I do not see why you could not have a baby. Every one is different and you your self will know when you are ready
