Pregnancy - Natural birth or C-Section
(Port Hedland ( WA))
I'd love to hear from any women that have Crohns disease and have managed to have a family. I'm 35yo and currently 6 months pregnant ( finally) but am now faced with the decision to have a Caesarean or try for a natural birth. My specialist has suggested an elictive Caesarean but others are saying no reason I can't have a natural birth. I'm happy either way but I don't want to do any more damage to my body. I was diagnosed with Crohns when I was 16yo, and have suffered from Perianal disease in the past. Fistula's, fisher tears and abcesses. Nothing in the past 6 years though. I'm currently on Infliximab and feeling great. I have to meet with the surgeon in a few weeks and I'd like to go armed with as much info as possible just in case I really need a Caesarean and he tries to talk me out of it.
Thanks for your help.
