When my Husband and I found out that we'd only have children by c-section we initially thought that this might really limit our family size till we found out after our second child from the surgical report and talking to our doctor that I have little to no scar tissue. The doctor's keep talking about us stopping having kids after 3 based on a myriad of risk factors all based on the build up of scar tissue even though they have a report in they're hand on my specific case which says I'm not at risk based on a lack of said scar tissue. I get handed a paper that lumps complications of women having 4th or greater c-sections even though there is an obvious difference between your 4th pregnancy and your 9th(not to mention older mother,grand multipara,etc... with 9th pregnancy).
If they show me excessive scar tissue or bleeding or thinning of the uterus on the surgical report but so far all they give me is a number based on a problem I don't have.
I'm the only c-section mother in my family and most of my friends don't have kids yet so since just asking around is not really a possibility how is a good way to find a supportive Ob/gyn without coldcalling everywhere?
I just don't want to be bugged about supposedly taking my life into my hands and this is only my third pregnancy.

Yes and every subsequent pregnancy and c-section increases the likelihood of such complications occurring whether or not you have excessive scar tissue present at the current time. They are just doing their jobs. Maybe you ought to listen to them for once.
