I was wondering how long my body needs to recover from a delivery to be able to become pregnant again.
I lost my baby due to a blood clot in the umbilical cord.
Is it easier to become pregnant right after a birth?
Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss.
Most caregivers suggest waiting a few cycles before attempting to conceive again. How far along in your pregnancy did you lose the baby? What did your caregiver suggest? Do they know what caused the clot in the umbilical cord? I have recently met two pregnant women that have had repeat miscarriages due to clotting caused by anti-phosphilipid (sp?) syndrome. You may want to schedule an appointment with a perinatologist since they specialize in high-risk pregnancies. I strongly encourage you get a second opinion before you begin to try to conceive.Remember, I am not a doctor, midwife or a nurse so these are just suggestions from a doula. Please seek medical advice.
