Suzanne!


Hi and Welcome! Let me apologize for not saying "hi" earlier... I posted a response to your initial post, but I guess it never actually got posted... or at least I don't see it here! Congrats on your 3rd child! I can relate a little bit to your story as I've had 3 C sections, but only have 2 little ones at home. (My first, Kate, passed when she was 7.5 months.)


I 100% think it's true that doctors differ in their approach to C sections and multiple C sections in particular. And finding one that you trust and "get along with" is super important! There are increased risks with increasing Cs... placenta acreta, placenta previa, etc. are more common with C sections and can result in hemmorage and a need for an emergency hysterectomy... but that is very rare.


I'm hoping for a few more!


Welcome to the board... and I hope that you'll chime in and help a few of the women who pop in here! :)
