  • I think it depends on where you live sometimes. I have a friend in Canada who told me she can only have 3 to 4 I believe. Here is a link I found

  • it's pretty typical to have a C section after you've already had one...It's safer in my opinion that a VBAC...i KNOW some people will disagree with that...and you're entitled to your own opinion, but I would rather not risk bleeding to death. CSections are done very routinely now and very safe.

  • I heard of one woman having I think 6? I mean, if you get pregnant again, what are they going to do? They can't really refuse to do the section. I'm going to be having my third in December, but that's my last; I'm getting a tubal. My last doctor really didn't think I should have another, but that was because my uterus scarred really bad. This baby was a surprise.

  • My mom had 3 and the doctor told here it was too dangerous to have another one. She only wanted 3 kids anyhow!

  • I have a friend who just had her 7th c-section and the Dr. told her that she is good to go for number 8. She is a Csection advocate to make sure that women know they can still have children after 2 or 3 csections. A lot of times Dr's will just tell you that.

  • I've only had one so far...but I'm guessing it mainly just depends on the person and how healthy they are and all that.

  • It depends on you, your body, your OB. Some women can have 7 + c-sections and be fine. Others are damaged during their 2nd and can no longer have children.
    If you want, you still have the option of having a VBAC, even after 2 c-sections.
    You might want to look into it.
    Good Luck!
