I’m 18 and expecting a baby boy in 3 months. I am a survivor of an brain aneurysm when I was 12. I had many appointments after , in 2009 mY surgeon released me with no restrictions. Does anybody know if its Ok to give vaginal birth?? I’m needing answers.
Definitely talk to your prior neurosurgeon or have OB/GYN speak to Neurosurgeons.
Sorry, I have no experience with this, but want you to know that I will be praying.
Thank you!! I have tried getting intouch with them, but it seems they don’t like to call back . But thank you:)
I had my first one year after my first stent & coiling procedure, my second son I still had another annie it was very tiny but started to grow when my second son was born at 6 months old I had my second surgery. But with my first son I was in labor for 2 days then had to have a C-section he was to big. As long as your blood pressure is fine at least that's what the doctors told me. Good Luck I pray that everything goes well for you.
Again Welcome...I think you should discuss this question with your Surgeon and your Gynocologist...it is very important...~ keep us posted...~ Colleen
My Gyno said I should be perfectly fine. MY surgeon has moved States , so its hard to get in touch with another one.
"Should"...is not a definite...I think you need to make an appointment with a Neurosurgeon in your area...take your medical records (on the surgery) and ask your pregnancy question...~
Well, I called Childrens, and just to get my medical records will be a hassle.which is ridiculous. The neurosurgeon nurse I talked to said I will be fine cause the 2009 scan has no signs of me ever having an AVM
This is good...now you have your answer that a vaginal delivery is fine...~ I am sorry abbie...I thought you didn't know what to do...read this post wrong...good luck on your delivery ... ~ Colleen
Ps...many of us have her medical records...it isn't a hassle...just takes a bit of work...it is important for us survivors to have them for future medical situations...
I have 2 annys and just had one coiled 3 weeks ago that apparently has been there for quite some time -- the one coiled was at a point where it could have ruptured and luckily never did -- I have a 5 year old and almost 3 year old that I delivered naturally with it unknowing and untreated. My babies were 8 lbs 1 oz and 9 lbs 2 oz. Your anny was treated if I am understanding correctly so I would say you are in the clear! congrats on becoming a mom and I wish you the best with many thoughts and prayers!
Abbie talk to a Dr, however I was pregnant within 2weeks of my second aneurysm clipping and 4 months of the ruptured one I was fine in labour 40 odd hours had him naturally so don’t worry unnecessarily xxx
