  • ive never had one but i think why they ay onlyy so many is because the more and mroe they cut you open the more risk there is that you will tear soemthng the next time you are pregnnat .

  • I agree, I have only had three, but my dr never said anything about how many. Possibly because of the space between all my kids already, and thinking that it was something better left to be said in a later pregnancy. I don't know.

  • Be glad they said 4 most wont do more than 3. You loose more and more muscle resistance with each one so the scar tissue builds up and makes it harder and more unsafe the more you have. Its always a risk and its a personal choice if they wont allow a vbac to continue. Its not like they can leave a baby in there because you've had 4 or 5 they have no choice but to take the baby out if it wont come vaginally.

  • I have had 2 with both of my kids and when I had my first and had c-section they said only 3.

  • I haven't, but my sister had six. Her Dr. told her no more than five, but when she showed up at his office preganant with her sixth he accepted her as a patient and did the c-section.
