Will pregnancy affect my hernias?

Posted by emsy_wemsy


I have 2 children my eldest is 5 and my youngest is 3, both were born  by c-section, emergency for the first and planned for the second, after having my 2nd child i developed 2 incisional hernias which i have been told i would need surgery to repair, when i went to see the surgeon about a repair i was told to lose weight and i could have a tummy tuck at the same time (was told to lose around 8stone) since then i have lost around 5stone but i would now really like 1 more child, if i was to fall pregnant in the next few months would it affect the hernias and would i have to have a vaginal birth or c-section again as i would really like to have a natural birth this time?
