She gave birth August 30th via c-section. Now, her rep tells People Magazine she’s in the hospital for complications from that procedure. The rep says Spelling underwent emergency surgery, though now, "She remains in the hospital and is resting comfortably." This baby boy, Finn, is Spelling’s fourth child. TMZ was first to report the news. And The New York Daily News notes Spelling has had each of her children via c-section -- with Finn being her second c-section in less than a year. Four c-sections might, or might not, seem like a lot for a body to endure. Digital Spy reports Spelling herself told InTouchWeekly earlier this month … “ I've had C-sections with each baby. It puts the body through trauma. I don't think I could do it again.” But the procedure is becoming more and more common. Childbirthconnection.org reports the 2010 c-section rate in the US was at 32.8%, meaning about one in three mothers now gives birth by c-section. So what are the risks to repeat c-sections? Benefits? Info is varied. The Mayo Clinic says ... “Although there isn't enough research to support a specific limit on repeat C-sections, most women can safely have up to three cesarean deliveries. Each repeat C-section is generally more complicated than the last.” Though WebMd reports on a March 2012 study... “Planned repeat cesarean section is linked to healthier outcomes among mothers and babies compared to vaginal birth after cesarean, or VBAC, in a new study from Australia.” Ultimately, Spelling does seem to be in good health now. Her husband, Dean McDermott, was responding to fans on Twitter, saying she is having tests done, and the family wanted to keep the hospitalization private.
