Recently my wife & I just had our 7th child.
The last 3 children were delivered by c-section.
During this last delivery the doctor found my wifes uterus wall to be very thin in spots. The Dr. told us repeatedly that my wife could not carry again as the uterus would not be able to carry another child to full term. He told me it looked like a window into the womb before he cut into the uterus during the c-section.
I am 40 and my wife is 35 years old.
We do not want to commit any sin against Jesus so we are thinking that getting a tubal or a vasectomy is out of the question.
We are aware of NFP and have been using it for years however our last 3 children have be concieved while using NFP so naturally we are scared to be intimate. We don’t want to be responsible for the premature death of a new baby (baby being spontaneously aborted naturally by the body before birth) and we don’t want the risk of mortality for my wife if the uterus wall breaks open during a pregnacy (both my wife and the new baby could die).
We are looking for good Catholic advice as to what to do next.
Can anyone help?
