  • When they decide your uterus is no longer stable they will do a partial hysterectomy (just the uterus). If this pregnancy holds and I have to have my 4th c I want them to do it.

  • You can have a vba4c if you really want one.
    You're damaging your body each and every time you have a section.

  • I agree with liyoness, but yes it is possible although you are adding that much more scar tissue to your body and making recovery harder and longer.

  • wow! I would bet that after having 4 there is a reason why they wouldn't even consider you for a vbac... Have you read up on repeat C-sections and what damage they can cause to your Uterus?

  • You really should look into VBA4C. There is A LOT of information on vaginal birth after muiltiple c-sections. It is much SAFER than continuing with major abdominal surgery.
