Pregnant with Chiari

Hi, I have Chiari Malformation 1 and Basilar Invagination, and I am 29 weeks pregnant. I was wondering if any of you have had a normal pregnancy with chiari, and if so how did the birthing process go for you? Did you have to have a C-section? If so was it under general anesthesia? thanks.

Anm, congratulations!!! How are you feeling? I don’t want to add to any unease, I would be cautious with a vag birth without learning more. From what I have read here from some other members, symptoms came on or worsened after births. I have also read about vag births with “no pushing” too for chiaris. Talk to your physicians/ midwife about it. Is this your first?
