Has anyone had 3 or more c-sections?

Postby bsweet » Sun Sep 16, 2012 7:14 pm

If so, how did it go? any complications? were you or your doc concerned about the frequency of surgery? anything else of note to say?

(fyi we are ttc #3 and my doc will not do a VBA2C)

I have had 3 with no complications. The gap between my 1st and 2nd was 9 years then, 28 months between my 2nd and 3rd. I had a super awesome OB and I knew I was in good hands going into the 3rd. I was told anything beyond 3 was too risky but I know it has been done. Good luck to you.

I have had 3 c-sections and in May will have a 4th, the only issues with me is scar tissue, it takes longer to get in to get baby. I just had my OBGYN appt yesterday and she didnt say anything to me about it being risky with already having 3. Is there a limit??? Ive not heard of this just curious? My OBGYN will not let me do VBAC either because theres just to much risk of tearing then having to go in for emergency c-section so its just not worth it to me or my doctor.

I will be having my 6th c-section on April 2nd, I am due April 8th. My first 4 were all in four years, then my fifth was last year, 7 years after my 4th. It depends on how well you heal, my ob gave us the green light at my last c-section to have #6 I had very little scar tissue and no thinning, this one is our last as it's mine and dh's second together and we are done.
