London, Aug 3 : Victoria desperately wants a baby girl, but is in turmoil over whether to expand her family-as she fears it could kill her.
Victoria, 34, already has three sons - Brooklyn, nine, Romeo, five, and Cruz, three - with husband David, 33, by elected Caesarean sections.
However, doctors have warned her that if she has a fourth child, C-section would be life threatening.
Doctors say a natural birth is out of the question for the former Spice Girl due to the number of C-sections she's already had.
"Victoria is terrified but she's desperate for another baby. She's always wanted a ittle girl to join her three boys," The daily Star quoted one of her pals, as saying.
"She wanted to try for a baby after the Spice Girls finished touring. But she's put her plans on hold while she sees what can be done to help her.
"She knows she is putting her health at risk if she dismisses the advice of her doctors and has another C-section," the pal added.
Posh discussed her childbirth fears with gynaecologist Dr Malcolm Gillard at the Portland Hospital earlier this year when the Spice Girls were touring in London.
Victoria has even been on a special diet to put weight on in preparation for her next child but she's not started trying yet because she needs more medical advice.
A source revealed: "Posh is trying to get as strong and healthy as she can be and is eating healthily to prepare herself for her next baby. She wants to make sure her body is as strong as it can be. She's also seeking as much medical advice as she can before she decides what to do next."
