In brief: Depends

It depends on how many c-sections and why you had them. In general, after two c-sections the risks get higher and higher. If you had a c-section for breech or abnormal position, your risk of a second c-section is lower. If you had one because your cervix didn't dilate or the baby wouldn't come down, your risk is higher.

In brief: Depends

If your prior cesarean section was for failure to progress -> you may have a higher chance than someone who had a cesarean section for breech presentation or concerning fetal heart tracing.
