Default No complication with umbilical hernia

This is because the indirect inguinal hernia put the baby at risk of developing infertility, infection, and obstruction.
While in the case of umbilical hernia you don't have any of these risks. Therefore you wait for the baby to grow up and there's a good chance it will reduce by itself and if not you can then do surgical repair just for cosmetic reasons.
