A 25-year-old female asked:
Is it dangerous to have more babies after 3 csections?

Some think so: Obgyns begin to worry that the uterus may have more likelihood of spontaneous rupture in late pregnancy or labor after several c sections. This is a catastrophic event & one worth concern as both mom & baby can be lost. That said, i scrubbed in on a mom's 5th decades ago. I would discuss this with your OB & see if they worry more for some than others.
