Mother's abdominal problems, a pregnancy hazard?

Mother's abdominal problems, a pregnancy hazard?

Question:

- I am operated by omphalocele at the age of 1 day, 1 month, 1 year and one after the other and intestinal occlusion at 14 years. I am 27 years old, I have had no problems and I am pregnant in the 5th month. Do you think it is a risk or how to give birth better, naturally or with caesarean section? What can I do as my mother or child?

Answer:


At 27 years it is considered that the abdominal wall is sufficiently restored to be able to allow and sustain both a vaginal birth (I mean here the contracture of the abdominal muscles when this contracture is allowed and requested), but also a birth by operation. Caesarean section (I refer to the subsequent possibility of re-abdominal wall recapture).
The opinions are divided in this sense, being doctors who consider a birth by Caesarean section beneficial in such conditions because they do not subject the chest cavity to an increased pressure and because they can correct within the same intervention the physiological hiatus performed by the right abdominal muscles. during pregnancy. The doctor remains the sovereign over the decision.
Good health!
