During the duration of gestation, the umbilical cord passes through the small opening of the baby abdominal muscles. This opening basically closed just after the birth of the child. In any case, if the muscle doesn’t join together completely in the midline of the abdominal wall, an umbilical hernia can appear at a time of birth or later in life.
In adult too, intense abdominal pressure leads to umbilical hernia. There could be several causes of Umbilical Hernia include:
- Multiple Pregnancies
- Previous abdominal surgery
- Presence of Fluid in the abdominal cavity (ascites)
