You probably mean a sterilisation. Hysterectomy is not necessary to prevent you falling pregnant again. This can be done the day after the birth of the baby, or at the same time if you have another caesarean. Breastfeeding will not be affected.

Why don't you just have a sterilisation done. That's what I'm going to do after this one as this is my 3rd.
About the breastfeeding, I'm hoping will still be able to after sterilisation, going to check with my gynae.

Good luck and God Bless
