I've called a few ob/GYNs and they keep telling me they won't see me because I've had three csections and they won't do a 4th! I don't want another one so that convenient because i already have a midwife that will come to my home. I just need a doctor that will do a full work up on me to see why I am losing babies back to back. Make sure my hormones are normal. That's all I am asking for! Is that so much to ask for!

Not too much to ask. Maybe you could see an ibgyn for like a pap and actually DISCUSS your issues and concerns and see where to go from there. Or bypass an OB and talk to a fertility specialist?

I cant see a feritlitly doc without a refferal and I don't think our insurance covers it. But I found a office that would do the blood work and pap and I'll just talk to them about our issues then. I just want to heard what they think it might be...see if it's anything wrong with me or if we need to start talking about changing donors

Sounds like a crap doctor to me
I had a c-section with my 2nd child...and I asked before I ever did it if there was a "limit" on how many I could have and he said absolutely not. Every woman is different..some women are done after one and some can have 7+ and be fine.
he told me that the woman coming in after me was on her 6th csection
So the fact that without even seeing you they have put a limit on you is bullshit

There's a woman on here (not in this group) who has had like 7 or 8 c sections and she's fine. That makes no sense to me.

I really don't want another one and I know i i go to the ER in labor they can't tell me no so meh whatever. I just need someone who will help me hold onto a pregnancy not someone who will commit to the delivery lol is that horrible?

Even though you want to use a midwife they're probably thinking if something went wrong or if you ended up having a high risk pregnancy they'd end up having to give you another c section. But still. I don't see the big deal. Stupid doctors. lol

Yeah I can understand that but I hair don't understand why they would put a limit on women. This is bs
