  • I've had only one, but I'll be having my second next summer. A friend of mine had four. I don't see why it wouldn't be ok to have another baby.

  • I haven't had any c-sections, 3 natural births. Yes you can have another baby as long as there were no serious complications from your c-sections. Make sure to tell your doctor if you are going to try to have another baby if you have any concerns. Why did you have the c-sections, for medical reasons? By the way, it is still possible to have natural birth!

  • That's flat out not true that you can't have natural once you have a c-section. I know many moms who have delivered both ways. My sister-in-law had her first son delivered by c-section, but her second and third both natural, which is much easier on the body. Some doctors just want to schedule c-sections to fit into their schedule better. Talk with your doctor about your concerns, and if you have another baby leave your options open. Don't assume you have to get another c-section!

  • I've has 1 c section my doc told me to wait at least a year if I wanted to get preggo again. I had a very hard pregnancy and a very hard birth so it will be a long time before I have another one if I do.

  • I've had two and I'm preggo again so this will be 3. They recommend 3 but I'm going to push for four and typically that's safe too. I've heard of lots of people going to 4 and some past. I'dd say 4 is good though

  • I had a C-section with my first baby and then went on to have 3 Vaginal deliveries. I just depend on what the reason for the first c-section was and how the incision was made in the uterus. Those are the main factors on deciding if you can do a VBAC.
