How many c sections can you have?
I have had 4 c sections and one vaginal birth. I am pregnant again and most likely will have another c-section.
Should I have any concerns or should I be fine

there are increased risks with every c/s.  the risks are particular higher for placenta accreta which is a condition wherein your placenta grows into the lining of the muscle.  this risk is higher with higher numbers of c/s.  this is not to say it will happen but it is something you should have a doctor checking out for.  the risk of uterine rupture also increases with grand parity, which you are also at risk for particularly with a high number of c/s.  again, this does not mean that you will have this happen.  if i were you, however, i would ask that my care be managed by a high risk doctor.  congratulations and good luck, i am sure it will work out wonderfully! keep us updated!

i don't think your c/s should stop you, but be aware they increase risks and talk to a high risk dr.  good luck!
