A 45-year-old member asked:

Is it possible for someone with a uterus rupture in first pregnancy to have healthy babies later?

Yes: Healthy babies are possible but, in my experience not vaginally. C section is safer although there is some controversy about this. I would never deliver a woman with a history of a ruptured uterus vaginally. Ever.
