How soon can you have another baby after c-section?

Since my period was late this month I thought this question was appropriate. My OB said 12-18 months was ideal after a c-section to make sure that I was fully healed up. Getting pregnant too soon can cause a uterine rupture, among other problems. Always keep up the communication with your OB, even after your child is born. We have opted to do natural family planning, but there are a number of birth control options out there to ensure that you aren't getting pregnant before you should.
