    Question How many Cesarean Births are allowed?

    A Sister Friend told me a Woman who can't deliver Vaginally is only allowed 3 Births via Cesarean.I've not been told by Gynecologists or read through reading.I have Spinal problems (Degenerative Disc Disease and a slight curvature) and a former Gyne told me I would be on complete bed rest during last trimester and would require C-section.He didn't tell me how many Pregnancies or C-sections I was allowed.I don't think this is accurate.Could someone clear the air about this?I do not believe in Contraceptives and neither does my Fiance.

    Thank you,

    Sponsors Lightbulb

    It depends on your Dr really. If you talk to your Dr after the first C-Section s/he can tell you. It depends on the condition of you uterus and the risk level of your pregnancy.

    I had my first daughter via CS because she was breech and my second RCS because I didn't want a VBAC. I had easy pregnancies with no risks. My Dr told me four babies, but I am done with two because of bicornuate uterus and endomitriosis.

    My friend had a higher risk due to being obese and gestational diabetes. Her Dr told her only three.

    I have a friend who had 4 c-sections. Her last one caused her a lot of pain and took forever to heal!

    just wanted to add my own personal experience. i have five kids...all born by c-section. for a variety of reasons...i have ddd scolosis and kyphosis...disc problems...but just wanted to let you know that.

    the last c-section was hardest...because they did the up and down cut instead of the bikini cut....
    including the c-sections, i have had a total of 10 abdominal surguries. if you have any specific questions, ask. don't hesitate.

    It depends on the doctor. I've had 4 cs and my doctor still wouldn't tie my tubes, because my husband wouldn't sign the papers. My doctor just told us to space them out because I got pregnant with my third son, when my second son was 4 months old. Then a year later, I got pregnant with my fourth son.
