Pregnancy Complications and Wants to Have Another Baby

I had very serious complications after my 3rd pregnancy. I had a 6 hour c-section and went into DIC and then had blood clots in my lungs. This is the first child for my husband. We really want more children. I am not sure if I should have another child. Any opinions or stories of your own complicated deliveries are greatly appriciated. I am not really looking for advice more than positive outcomes from other people. I am going to have a doctors opinion before I make a decision.
