Want natural birth!

Hi Doc

In December 2007, I had a laparotomy cut when my gynae removed an ovary that was damaged by recurring cysts. No cut was made into my uterus.

I am expecting to deliver my first baby in January 2009, and would dearly love to have a natural birth. Will it be safe after having a cut only 13 months before I give birth? Or will I be forced to have a caeser?

Many thanks
Natasha

You would only need a caesarean if there was a cut on the uterus. this was not the case with you, so natural birth is possible.
