    Default 5th c section

    Has anyone had more than 4 c sections ??
    I have just found out im pregnant with baby 5 😬 I've had all previous babies via c section. On my last they told me it would be advisable too not have anymore children 😳 im worried about what could happen. Im assuming they will put me under high risk too.

    They will likely ultrasound your scar during the pregnancy to see how it's holding up. If there are concerns it's thinning too much and poses a risk of uterine rupture, it may necessitate a premature delivery. In saying that, they may recommend a delivery around 36 weeks to be on the safe side regardless. Will you be going public or private? Talk to your care provider about your risks (like the ones @ Meredithgrey mentioned) and things you can do to maximise your chances of a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Some of our doctors would recommend steroid injections for baby's lung development at the first hint that the scar may not hold up til term.

    Yes that's the plan. I wanted one last time but they refused because of my age.

    Was this after being told not too have anymore though ?
    They told me the only reason my body had handled it so well is cause I'm young
