vaginal birth and hernia operation

Hi doc
I am 18 weeks pregnant and would like to know if a normal vaginal birth would be possible after a hernia operation. I had a "laproscopic hiatus hernia" (not sure of spelling) operation in 2004 and am under the impression that a normal delivery might put too much strain on the affected area.

I would think that a normal delivery should be okay.

Best wishes
