I know that there is a very slight risk in having a VBAC, but how great is the risk for a VBAC after 3 c-sections?

  • I know that medically a Dr wont allow you to attempt vaginal delivery if you've had 2 previous c sections. I've never had one my self so I've never really done much research on it, but that's what I do know. I'd talk to your dr but chances are they are going to say NO

  • It was in a parenting magazine a while back. It's risky but not unheard of. Try google-ing it. You could tell your dr. that you want to attempt it but if he/she sees any problems starting to arise then to go ahead with the csection. HTH

  • I thought the problem was getting induced after a c-section...but with careful monitoring you may be able to have it done.
