Had a c-section child birth. How long should I wait to have next pregnancy? Will there be a complication in future?

hello, I have just had a baby two months ago. My question is how risky is it to take the decition to get pregnant soon in about six months or so maybe a year? I had a C-section and I understand the risks are to have my insition re-open or have some sort of complication. However id like to get a second opinion. what do you think? My insition looks good and its healed from top layer.

In case of one previous C-section, the next pregnancy would be in a gap of at least 2-3 years to avoid several complication like uterine scar rupture in concurrent pregnancy etc.
In this time period, you can take temporary contraceptive method to avoid unwanted pregnancy.
Avoid stress, take healthy diet with iron & calcium supplements, need proper sleep and care of the baby with proper immunization.
Be well.
