    Default Whats so dangerous about a 4th?

    The OP is specifically asking about fourth caesareans.

    I've assisted in some caesareans and there was one lady who was on her fourth baby and her uterus wall was stretched so thin in the previously cut/stitched areas that we could see the baby's hair through it! So she was told she couldn't safely have anymore babies. I am not certain how to best evaluate an individual's risk (without being able to get a direct look at the uterus wall!).

    Thanks for the responses A VBA3C is totally out of the question for me, as the reason i've had 3 is for medical reasons in the 1st place.
    I've heard of people going for a c-section only to find the uterus wall so thin it was a no-go for another. But everything was looking fine after my 3rd so if it looks that way after a 4th i'd be happy to call it quits anyways because we'd highly unlikely consider a 5th anyways. Just hoping my body holds up for a 4th one aswell as it has held up for the 3 i've already had.

    I will need to have csection (for medical reasons) and I was told that it depends on the person and how your uterus scars. Some women scar very badly and even 3 csections are too much, others can have 5 or 6 and be perfectly able to have more. I was told that after each operation they would assess and let you know...
    I have read of a woman who had 9 csections and was told her uterus looks great. The risk is that the scar tissue is not as elastic so with each pregnancy there is the risk of rupture so I suppose it also depends on how big one gets!
