Yep, I've had 4 children , no c sections. Of course I was diagnosed with epilepsy after I had my kids.

Quoting MaiVal:

I have epilepsy and no I don't have to have a c-section. I'm due May 24th :)

Quoting EntrepeneurMom: Did you have to have a C-section?

Just curious because I read an article in magazine by a woman who's daughter was pregnant, ddocs recommended she had one in case she went into seizure during labor. It was about how she was being looked down upon for having an elective c section, people assumed she was lazy etc. Remind you of anything? ;)

Yea, it would be nice to feel comfortable going out with my kids by myself. They are just too young, 6, 4 and 18 months. One of these days I hope it's under control.

 No. I take medication.

Quoting MixedCooke:

Do you follow a ketogenic diet?

What type of seizures do you have? Can I ask also what medication you take?

I'm allowed to drive now because I've been seizure free for 3 years. In my state they take your licence for 6 months if u have a seizure. I lost my license for 14 months at one point. It sucked.

Quoting Anonymous: Are you allowed to drive? Is there anything that improves it?
