Pregnancy after c-section

Kt • 👼

I had a c-section the first week of May 2019 due to my daughter/first child’s slow growth (4weeks behind) and breech position. She passed away 4 days later after her brainstem abnormalities were realized.

My OB recommended waiting at least 12 months preferably 18 months before getting pregnant again.

I feel this is too long to ask me to wait. I am 25, physically fit, and the c-section/recovery had no issues. I do have hopes of attempting a VBAC (I dream of a big family).

Any recommendations? Has anyone gotten pregnant soon after a c-section and had a successful VBAC?
