Hernia and Second Pregnancy

(1 Post)

Has anyone had a hernia in their groin due to pregnancy? This is my second pregnany (30 weeks) and I have just been diagnosed with having an inguinal hernia (lump in my groin). My first birth was forceps with a bad third degree tear. I was really hoping for an active and as natural as possible birth this time - My logic was that as everything is so "loose" this time, labour would perhaps be easier? My midwife is speaking to the consultant about whether a c-section is now more desirable, and less risk (as I don't want a bad tear again or to make the hernia worst). Has anyone had a similar exprience or any advice? Thanks!
