Whats so dangerous about a 4th?
21-12-2012 16:37 #12
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!
