Moms May Choose NOT to Have a Second Child after Cesarean Birth

Posted Oct 02 2008 3:16pm

A report on a very sad study appeared in my in-box from www.orgyn.com the other day.  Here is a link to the abstract: http://www.greenjournal.org/cgi/content/abstract/110/6/1256.  In the study, "cesarean delivery was associated with a significantly reduced probability of a second birth."  That is sad, very very sad.  I for one can say that I had decided that if I had a cesarean for my second, I was absolutely not going to have a third.  Thankfully I had a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) and we are now happily pregnant with number three.   My heart aches for those moms whose first birth experiences put an end to their childbearing.
