[5] A few previous studies have shown that maternal grand multiparity may predict an increased risk of psychopathology in adult offspring.
The following regression equation was constructed: multiparity x 2.642 - dilatation after CRB x 0.338 - epidural analgesia x 1.588 + GDM x 0.984 + oligohydramnios x 1.073.
Anglim, (2) reported that multiparity was the strongest predictor of successful ECV.
This group was clearly characterized by incomplete or absent antenatal care, multiparity, nonwhite skin color, age >25 years, and living in areas remote from perinatal care centers.

Other factors, in addition to the Cesarean section and placenta previa, increase the risk of occurrence of abnormal placental attachment and uterine rupture: multiparity, advanced reproductive age, endometriosis, uterine dilation and curettage, conventional myomectomies, and hysteroscopic resections of septs and myomas [5].
