4th Ceasor

Hi there

Please help....
My sister just found she' s 6 weeks pregant. She had 3 ceasor' s before and her doctor asked her to terminate this pregnancy because she cannot have a 4th ceasor.
Is this her only option? Is there any other way for her to keep this baby? The doctor also said she might loose her life if she goes ahead.

Thanks for your help

The risks with a 4th caesarean are that the uterus can rupture if she goes into labour. Therefore another caesarean must be done before labour. The surgery is likely to be more difficult because of the previous surgery and there is more risk of damage to bladder or bowel. Terminating the pregnancy is a bit drastic though, unless there are some underlying medical reasons why she had the previous caesareans.
