1) your umbilical hernia is easily corrected by surgery
2)no, it should not interfere with with further successful pregnancies
3)exercise will not correct the diastase of the rectus muscles.
4)after having your last child, you appear to be an excellent
candidate for a tummy tuck which will not only remove a
significant amount of your stretch marks and loose skin while
repairing your diastase recti
I suggest you seek out a Surgeon who is Board Certified in both Plastic and General Surgery.
If you do not get the hernia repaired, there is a higher risk of becoming a bigger hernia and have complications.
But also, if you get the hernia repaired, that navel couldn't be used in the future, in case you may want a Tummy Tuck because the navel circulation is cut completely during the repair.
Also you have to know that during a Tummy Tuck, it is easy to repair an umbilicus hernia.
