Hi - My husband and I have decided to have a 4th child.

All 3 of my children where born by caesarean sections.

The risks after 3 caesareans are mainly related to the surgery. There is a higher risk of injury to bowel and bladder because of the adhesions formed with the previous caesareans. There is also a higher risk of bleeding necessitating hysterectomy.
