This just emphasizes to me how important it is to avoid the first cut and if not to encourage a VBAC!!!

Dangerous delivery shows peril of multiple C-sections | Philadelphia Inquirer | 05/31/2010

ETA: I spoke with an online friend whom I haven't talked to since we were both pg. (our babies are 3moa apart) Apparently she hemorrhaged very badly during her c/s. They initially closed her up and after 2 transfusions, she was still hemorrhaging. They had to give her a hysterectomy. That baby was her 1st and last (took her 3yrs to get pg). Funny they don't tell that can be a s/e of having a c/s.

I'm sorry, but I understand the point of the article being to avoid c-section the first time if at all possible, but I also have a problem with someone putting themselves in such a perilous position in the first place by opting to have nine children via cesarean. I would choose to limit the size of my family rather than put myself and future babies at such great risk.

ITA!!! I thought 4 would have been my cut-off. So glad I now have more options.

I love that there is a doctor speaking out about the dangers of repeats! That article was so informative! I highly doubt that there are many doctors out there advocating for a erc and trying to veer their patients away from vbacs that go into nearly that much detail about the risks of surgery.

Another one to add to my vbac bookmark file for future cannon fodder. Thanks!
