SAH in 1994 and am now pregnant - has anyone else become pregnant and what has your dr advised?

Hi there, I was 18 when I had my brain haemorrhage. I had the aneurysm clipped and, although I have had some issues with speech and I lost most of my childhood memories I have had a relatively uneventful life. Now that I am pregnant I am wondering if anyone knows of long term studies or of anyone who has had such a surgery and gone on to become pregnant. My main concerns are increased blood pressure and risk of further bleeds. Also I can not get a straight answer about C-sections, any pointers gratefully received.

Hi there and congrats on pregnancy. I hope everything progresses and goes well. I wonder if your local midwife or head of local midwifery would have comments/advice that would be helpful.I bet there have been studies .

Also your local or national NCT group might have experience of this as well as headway of course .

Good luck

Kx
