  • whenever you want...if you're done with kids and you know it, you can have a c-section and they can do it after they take the baby out.

  • Some states you have to be older than 25 and even with that they dont always like doing it. My friend just went though a hudge battle with trying to get hers done.
    She has 10 kids and they didnt want to do it for her..

  • Yeah in germany its even harder... You need to be at least 25, must have 1, sometimes even 2 kids. OR you have a medical reason why you need to have it done.

  • I had mine done after my youngest dd was born. I was 28 when I had ds, 29 with my oldest dd and 32 w/my youngest dd. But because I had them all in a Catholic Hopsital, I had to go to another hosp. to get it done and luckily, the dr. that delivered my oldest 2 was at the same hospital I went to. And they made me wait 30 days (I live in PA, so it probably varies from state to state). How old are you? Hom many children do you have?
