I forgot to mention that my friend having her 5th can't go past 38 weeks (which can be dangerous for her babies) because of multiple scars, placement of one particular scar, and scar tissue. Once she gets past 34 they start monitoring her very closely and all of this is due to multiple scars. Generally they have to deliver her babies around 37 weeks and all of them have spent time in the nicu.


Quoting mikkosmommy:

With each one your risks increase. I have a friend about to have her 5th... But some women wind up with hysterectomies and other issues which prevent them from having more children. I think it depends on the woman's body, medical history, and the doctor.

I Think it entirely depends on the woman's body... I personally would try for a vbac instead of getting a c-section repeated.

I had 5. My 5th I began losing blood and had a hysterectomy (and a good amount of blood). It varies person to person.

I think ot depends on the woman and the doc willing to do it.

I just had my 3rd on Friday with twins and while everything went smoothly and perfect, I do not want to take my
Chances with another.

True, but an ob can refuse to deliver her. I would make sure I have an ob willing to do my c-section before getting preggo if thats an option.
Quoting 2girlsandadream:

no dr can force you to get fixed. if you want 4, ultimately that is your decision.

That depends on the woman's body how much scar tissue she has etc.

I personally know a woman who had five and she did fine. She had one complication but that was due to anesthesia.
