I'm no expert on births but is there a limit as to how many times you can have a C-section? Is there a time when doctors advise you to do so or??? Thanks!

There is no limit to how many you can have. Many times especially in the past once you had one c-section, all of your other children would also need to be born that way, but this does not always happen (Princess Mathilde is a good example)

Current thinking suggests that you wait 18 months between kids, but that is subjective and it doesn't matter how the first baby was born. I think if you had two children close together and the first was caesearan then the second one would be more likley to be born the same way.

Reasons for having a caesearn depend. In some cases the mother requests it, it was very popular in the between 60-80's. Other could be for medical reasons the baby is 'upside down' (Princess Elisabeth along with non royal baby Shiloh Jolie-Pitt) other times labour is progressing to slowly (Infanta Leonor), medical emergency (Lady Lousie Windsor) or high risk pregnancy such as twins (Prince Nicholas and Aymeric)

Yes that was the reason I'd asked. I thought I'd heard somewhere that women are advised to have only 3 children that way. (But what do I know??)

Thanks for your reply oppie.

This is an old wives' tale. Edward was born on October 12 and his mother Jane Seymour died on October 24. Women who had caesareans at this time did not survive, let alone survive for 12 days. Jane died of puerperal fever also called childbed fever. There are various dates given for the first successful caesarean and all are either in the late 1700s or the 1800s.

Queen Beatrix and Princess Máxima

When Princess Máxima delivered her first baby and the doctors gave a live televized press conference and told the Princess delivered it via natural way, there was surprise with many journalists and reporters on the various channels.

In 1967, 1968 and 1969 the then Princess Beatrix gave birth to Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince Friso respectively Prince Constantijn. All three of them via a caesarean. (In Dutch: keizersnede (Emperor's Cut) And that while eeeh... Princess Beatrix was 'well equipped' (broad hips) for a smooth delivery.

It was more or less expected that also Princess Máxima wanted to do it 'the royal way' but she did it all by herself.

I never heard that Queen Elizabeth had her kids by C-section. How was Princes Aiko of Japan born? C-section or Natural?
Yes I've heard that as well. My friend has 3 kids...first was born natural- 2nd was C-section (she had a 10pound baby boy). They told her to wait at least a year & a half before even trying to have a 3rd....well needless to say- it didn't happen (her 3rd came a year later & by C-section)
They say it can put a strain on your body to have C-sections so close together (or something like that).

In cases like this it is always strongly suggested, but not enforced rules, if you have four caesearans and get pregnant again, the doctors really have no choice, they can't force a natural birth. Same with having two children close together.

I have also heard that Queen Elizabeth and her mother had c-sections for all there children but I can't find a link. On the other hand Prince Philip was born on the dining room table (but I don't know if this is a urban legend or true)

that's what i know too, and what we're told. i have two friends who have 3 siblings each because they were all born through C-section. but then, i have another classmate who has 7 siblings and they were all born through C-section. so i guess it can depend on the woman's capacities and how your doctor can handle it.

I believe I read it in the book Royal Children by Ingrid Seward(Editor in chief of Majesty Magazine). I will double check to make sure it is correct.
