I've had 2 Caesarean sections and my Doctor said I had a lot of scarring that made the last C-section a bit difficult. What are my risks with having another Caesarean section?

The more Caesareans that you have, the higher the risk of scarring and adhesions between the womb and bladder, and womb and surrounding bowel. Although unlikely, it is possible that during the Caesarean there can be damage to these neighbouring structures-this would require repair there & then. There is also a small but not negligible risk of the placenta growing where the scar from the previous Caesarean was-this is known as placenta accreta and can cause heavy bleeding when the placenta is removed. It however is important to see these risks in context: the most likely outcome is that everything will be absolutely fine.
