Patient : I've had 3 c-sections: first one was February 2003 due to Fetal Distress, second was October 2005 - that was my choice, and the third was August 2010 because the doctor said after two c-sections that I had to have a third. After the third c-section, the doctor told me that I have some scar tissue - he didn't say not to have any more though. I really want one more child and I've read about people that had four c-sections even with scar tissue and the c-sections went fine and both mother and baby were fine and I've also read about people who've had even more than 4 c-sections. Also, I recover very quickly after my c-sections. So my questions is: Is it possible for me to safely have a fourth c-section?
