NO!: If you have had 3 cesareans, do not attempt trial of labor at term under any circumstances; it has never been proven to be safe and I am very concerned that it is not safe for both mother and baby! a 4th cesarean is what awaits if you keep getting pregnant - so make family planning and long-acting contraception a top priority to preserve your health/life. It would be a shame to create 3-4 orphans.
