Maternal Morbidity with Repeated Cesarean Deliveries
For women with prior cesarean deliveries, one question we often get is: “how many can I have?”. Traditionally, doctors have told women it was unsafe to have more than 3 or 4 cesareans. in this study, we looked at complication rates from multiple cesareans in our own practice. We found that while the rate of complications does increase with the number of cesareans, the overall risks are low, and likely lower than many people assume.
