VBAC Risky After Repeated Cesareans?
Thu, 11-15-2012 - 12:54pm


I have had three children -- all born by cesarean. I want to have another baby, vaginally, but my obstetrician advises against it. She said that the risk of uterine rupture is higher because of my previous cesareans. I was wondering if the odds of uterine rupture are associated with every birth after multiple c-sections?

How many cesareans did you have before attempting a VBAC? Did the number of c-sections worry you or your doctor at all?
