Vaginal birth after C-Section

My first son head got stuck in my birth canal so I had to have a C-Section, he weight 8 lb 9oz. My second son I had a vaginal birth and he weight 9 lb 10oz. My third son I had to have a C-Section because his heart rate was slowing down he weight 8 lb 14 oz. They are now 7, 6, and 3 yrs old.
I am now 31 yrs old and I want to have another baby, am I able to have another baby vaginally? Or do I have to have another C-Section? If so how many c sections are safe to have?

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
There isn't necessarily a limit for c-setions. Your doctor will need to assess which is best for you and your baby based on your physical condition at the time of delivery.
As you have seen in the past, there were reasons why it was necessary to have a c-setion because you could not have a vaginal birth. It may or may not be the same the next time.
