For patients undergoing cesarean delivery, the risk of the operation usually increases with each successive cesarean delivery. At Maternal Fetal Medicine Associates we care for many women with several prior cesarean deliveries and therefore perform many “high-order” cesarean deliveries (3rd or higher cesarean delivery).

Please ask your doctor any questions you may have regarding your condition to receive a proper diagnosis or risk analysis. Thank you!
