Hi doctor. This is my third pregnancy and will be my third caesarean. May I know the suitable time (week) for this procedure? Is 38 week is too late?
Hello and good morning.
Thank you for your question.
Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about your problem. I will try to help you.
For your information, delivery method and time is usually discussed with your obstetrician or doctor based on your condition and indications for Caesarean section. Generally, caesarean section is not always indicated to prevent further delivery scar, and for your information, mothers with previous caesarean deliveries are more prone to postpartum bleeding, longer recovery period and abnormal placenta for future pregnancy. Pros and cons of vaginal birth and Caesarean section should be discussed with your doctor to make the best choice based on your condition.
You can also contact our doctor online for further information and management.
I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
