I'm 31 with 3 children which were all deliver by C-section, I had my tubes tried after my 3rd child and at the time I was married now 6yrs later and divorced my fiancé who only has 1 child and I are wanting to have a child together after we are married. I'm very scared caused I was told you can only have 3 C-sections Has anyone had a 4th C-section?

I haven't had four c-sections, but I know people who have. There are lots of women who have had children after having three c-sections. It's not a hard and fast rule.

You need to talk to your doctor. A lot of factors will contribute to how risky another c section (or a vaginal birth) would be for you.

The general thinking is that most women can have three, and after that you need to consider a mother's individual situation carefully.
