QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hello, I just had a baby who's about a week old. When I first learned I was pregnant-3 months, I had my gallbladder taken out.

After I gave birth to my daughter I'm getting the same pains I was experiencing with my gallbladder but I have no gallbladder.

What can the pain be? Also, I noticed a foul smell in my vagina area?

Please help.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I was scheduled for a Hysterectomy in the summer and then found out that I am pregnant.
