How many C-sections can a woman safely have?

I've had 2 already (NOT my choice, btw). I would like more children, but I dunno how much my body can take.

  • I had 2 and I already know that I don't want to go through that again. I think you should talk with your doctor and consider how you feel about it too:-)

  • I've had 4 and my 4th one was the easiest one to heal from. However, I was unable to get my tubes tied due to the scar tissue and adhesions. The docs couldn't see one of the tubes. My husband got fixed instead.
